Sorry. I somehow had lost the connection
Expert:  Gary replied 3 months ago.

we need to see at the motor when the passenger switch is pushed if one wire shows 12 volts and the other is a good ground

if that tests out then the motor is bad

I need to buy a test light and test the drivers side door switches with the test light? The motor works for all the windows except the right passenger window

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. you need a volt meter or a test light . to see if the motor is getting power to the connector. theres no other way around it unless you want to start throwing parts at your vehicle.

Here are instructions to remove the door panel so you can check for power/ground at motor. If power/ground are good in both up/down position then replace the motor. If missing power/ground then check wiring in door jam. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Hi Dan thank you so much for the diagrams. So I remove panel for the side that isn't going to correct? So front passenger side?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

That is correct, then unplug window motor. Both wires going to motor should have power/ground in reverse order when pressing switch up/down. You can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees so make sure to let me know if you need anything. Thanks.
