window regulator motor

hello again! When I purchased my car the window was stuck half way down. I took the door panel off and wound the regulator up as high as i could and put it back together, its about in the same position as before. My question is, do you think its the motor, or the control panel? I actually seen it move before like 2 inches but that was it. I have to buy a new regulator because I destroyed mine... bummer. Can i just hook up 12 volts to the motor and see if it works? I dont know if the motor is 12 volts or less and dont wanna fry a good motor too. how can i test the control panel for the windows? Like using a volt meter, do i test for ohms or what? everything else works on the control panel except the drivers side window. And I did see it move briefly for just a second. Also all the wires look factory and in good shape.

If you're comfortable unplugging the motor and running straight battery voltage through it, that's a perfectly good test. I'd certainly do that

Odds are, if the regulator died from being moved manually, that the regulator was the issue.

Well I put juice to it from a small 12 volt scooter battery if it can turn a scooter over it should be powerful enough for the motor. When I put juice to it nothing, not a click, not a sound, not a movement, tried the terminals backwards and still nothing. It’s looking the the motor. But I’m just gonna buy the regulator and motor together to eliminate problems and because I lost a white plastic piece in the door. So buying the hole assembly now. Crazy how much grease is in there and how good it looks. It looks like brand new. But rock auto here I come again!.... lol btw Walmart has great deals on tires! $37$ shipped and I payed the local guy 8 bucks to mount it. Put the wheel weights back in the place they were befor and away I went!

Just remember, you're trusting your life and the lives of those around you to $37 rubber. Be sure to learn their limits safely, in case you ever need to hit them on the street to avoid a collision

Well after a lot of fooling around with this I finally ordered a complete regulator assembly. I ordered just the motor after testing my motor and getting nothing. Then while installing the new motor I realized the old motor started working but the wire on the track was making it hang up causing it to become hung up. So I returned the motor and bought a whole new assembly. I should have just spent the $49 to begin with because time is money and I have spent a lot of time fooling with this one problem not to mention the bloody-knuckle sammiches

Oh, also, I just read that he put the weights back where they were... Wheel weight location varies by tire, not just the rim. It's the tire out of balance that causes the change, not the rim.

Go get your wheels properly balanced, and you'll save yourself on buying another $37ea tire in a year. Or don't. If nothing else, a set of garbage tires per year hurts me from an environmental aspect. They don't get recycled very well
