So do yo see the window motor turning when you actuate the switch?
motor does not turn
The window motor may be shorted electrically and thats why the door control module shuts off power as soon as it is actuated. If you jump direct power to the motor and it still doesn't turn, the only thing it could be is the window motor.
Is the clicking from the door module the right noise I should be hearing? Is it reading a short in the motor, and then cutting power to the motor?
Yes, the clicking in the door control module means the relay is clicking over to send power to the motor. It turning off right away means it sensed too high of a current draw. This is also how it knows to stop at the top of the window and for anti pinch proctection.
Good answer. Guess I am buying a motor. Thanks for your help.
