'97 cc right rear window and lock quit - harness?

The right rear window on my truck quit today. Working fine this morning, door got used a bunch today, and the window stopped responding to the drivers control. I got it rolled up with the rear control, then the whole door quit responding. Nothing in window, and the door lock won't respond to the power locks.

I'm going to pull the door panel in a few days, but any known weak points I should look at? I'm afraid I'll have to rebuild the harness or something. Is there stretch that goes to the door the usual suspect or will I have to pull the interior out?

The wire run between b pillar and back cab doors is known to break right in the middle. It is a pain to fix because of how hard it is to get tools in there. The door opening and closing breaks the wires, right about the middle of the boot.

That's what I was afraid of.

Is this something a shop would be better suited to do than "side of the road in front of my house"?

I'll at least pull the door panels and take a voltmeter to things.

Its usually where the harness goes between the door and pillar. I removed the harness on my 94 and ended up "rebuilding" it with some good quality wire that is capable of flexing (many small strands vs fewer larger strands). Mine was actually causing a short between the power window wiring and the courtesy light in the door (in addition to the lock not working). Body-side connectors were under the lower plastic trim for the pillar. Cheers!

Oh, there's a connector to the body harness? That's good to know.

Yes, If you remove the lower B pillar cover there is a rubber plug your remove to access the plugs
