    No /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Splice it or jump the wires or you can get a trash bag and duct tape <---my favorite /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Take the cover off and remove the motor and push the window up manually the replace the motor til you can repair or replace the problem.

    What I did was take off the cover and took off the cable at the motor and pinched the internal cable to a drill. Made my window go up or down when I wanted. I finally fixed my rear window today. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif I found out that stupid latch switch was bad. Bypassed the switch and worked well. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
