Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you

do you have power on the window motor wires that connect to the motor when trying to roll up or down now?

is this the only window that doesnt work?

I appreciate your response. In the meantime, I was able to test the motor (it is not bad) and the Wiring (It has power). The motor is fairly new and seeing that all the parts seemed to have the appropriate power, I took my late fathers advice: "If it is not working, test all your electrical components, if all is as it is supposed to be and you think it should work, hit it with a hammer." (He was an engineer, not a mechanic. It worked. Problem solved.... for now.

lol,,a hammer can fix allot..

i would think that sense the jar from the hammer hit,that that new motor is bad,,it seems to be sticking,though it may work for a while after you hit it,i would think it will quit again,,if so,replace the motor thanks
