The window gradually started to slow down when I used the button to ope and close. After 8 months, I opended the window and not it will not close when I push the button.

how will i ground it. there are no loose ends
Expert:  Tim West replied 7 years ago.
Actually the ground is on the driver door switch is needed to be accessed. A bad main power window switch (drivers side) is more than likely bad. You will have to get to the drivers main switch. Pin 2 hook a ground wire up to it directly. Reconnect the connector and retest it.
