    ok my rear window stopped going up, i thot the switch was broken (the one in my dash) but i took it apart and the switch is not the problem, i ran a jumper wire to the ground and to both of the other plugs were the switch went, and the window jerks downward when i touch one side and the window dosent do anything when i do the other... my rear key switch has never worked.

    here is where i need ur help. is this going to be very difficult to fix? everything else in my electrical system works except this.

    is there a fuse or something i could have blown?

    the end of the plug that does nothing when i connect it to the ground looks kinda melted.

    what should i do, where do the wires run.

    thanks.

    I just went through this with my 88. In the tailgate, on the left(drivers side) latch, INSIDE the gate is a safety switch that won't allow the motor to operate up if the gate is open. I just jumped the blue wires at the switch for now.
