Drivers side window won't roll down

Question

I need help with getting my drivers side window to roll down on my 2005 GTO. Has anybody else had this problem? Does anybody have any ideas?   It rolls up but not down . changed the motor and checked it before we installed it and it went up and down just fine. put it in and it only went up. Any help would be great


 


 


                                               Thanks Jim

Got it figured out finally. The window switch was shorted.

Sounds like you checked it, OUT of the car before installing?  Could be your up/down switch????

we checkrd the window switch first its sending voltage down to the motor. Changed the body control module(big mistake didn't know it needed to be re-programed) Shut down the whole car. We did check the motor out side of the car. we checked the relay for the windows it was good too.I don't know where to go from here.

Does it have one set of wires that run to the motor that reverse polarity for up and down or more.complicated than that?

Just two wires that terminate in a connector for the motor.

If the switch is sending voltage to the motor then I don't know why Its not working. Did you check for voltage when you pressed both up AND down? I'm just throwing stuff at the wall here.
