Question RF Power Window Problem

OK, here it is: Came home the other day and tried to roll up the RF window, no go. OK, check the window lock, it is in the OK position. Went to the passenger side control, no go. Out comes the meter. Battery voltage in the down mode on the red/yellow wire at the motor end of the harness. Nothing in the up mode on the yellow/red wire. OK, new motor, same results. Scratch, scratch. Checking all again. Continuity between the harness ends, but not between the opposite wires, Further checking voltages, found that upon using the up function I am reading voltage on both wires. Ok, new switch, same results, ie no up motion and voltage on both wires upon trying. Any ideas, I am at my wits end? Thanks. Dan

the master switch(drivers) could be bad. The pass switch goes through the drivers.

Window

Thank you. After full troubleshoot, it was the master switch. $35 at the partsyard and I was fixed. Thanks again. Dan

Bringing this back up..
Is the master switch a common problem?
I had my windows working intermittently this weekend, then they just stopped all together.
It happened when my windows were down while I was camping so the truck was safe but I ended up pulling the door panels off and running a jumper wire to the motor to get the windows up before driving home. I checked voltage at the end of the plug going to the motor and it was only 8.4 volts or so... not 12v.

I wouldnt say its a common problem, but the master switch is used probably 10 times more then the rest of the switches.

So do you think it's the switch if I'm not getting enough power down at the plug for the window motor? Window motor worked fine when I ran a jumper wire.

Good to read this - My RF window has issues too. I've found, for now, I can kind of push down on the whole switch paddle and make it go up. I guess I need to start looking for a master switch.

Thanks for posting.

Yea I wasn't sure if it was not making good contact through the switch...
The switch is too expensive to just buy and hope that's it too!
Any idea why voltage would be low at window motors?
I am really hoping its not the GEM
