Odd Power Window Issue... Completely Stumped!
I'm having an issue with my passenger side power window not rolling down. I figured the motor was shot, so i bought one and upon pulling the old motor, i found it to roll up fine but it won't roll down. I plugged the new motor in and found the exact same issue. Will spin in the roll up direction but not in the roll down direction. Here is where things get weird...
I tested the leads to the motor. There are 2 wires one sends a signal to roll down and the other sends a signal to roll up. I tested the wires and both are getting 11.9 volts when either button is pressed. If the roll down button wire is getting power how the hell does the motor not activate. Again both motors are showing this symptom.
Additionally, if you hit the driver side switch I don't get anything. Could a bad driver side switch cause the passenger side to malfunction? Its driving me totally insane. Any help would be great!
Has anyone ever experienced this?
Edit: Just jumped 12V to the motor and got it to spin in both directions. The Motor is clear. It appears that I'm getting a complete circuit in the up but not in the down. Im guessing the switch is bad...
