Use your multi-meter to probe each connector. Set the multi-meter for DC volts and put the prongs of your multi-meter into the connector. It should read 12 volts. Check the wiring on any switch that has a low voltage reading. Tighten any loose connections, and clear away any corrosion. Test another switch. Take a switch from another door and plug it into the connectors on the malfunctioning door. If you are able to operate your window using this switch, then the original is bad and will need to be replaced. Buy a new switch. Contact your dealership or favorite parts store and get a new window switch. Install the new window switch. This can be done by plugging the connectors into the switch and popping the switch back into the door panel.
Use a multi-meter to make sure that the motor is getting the correct voltage. Attach the probes of your multi-meter to the motor’s plug and toggle the switch up and down. Make note of the voltage in both directions. Your owner’s manual should list the specific voltage required. Ensure that the window moves freely during this test. There should be no slow spots or blockages. Unplug the motor. If you the motor is getting the proper voltage but not functioning properly, you likely need to replace it. Start by unplugging the wiring connectors from the motor.
