So I took out the window controls had tested that by putting in a new unit and still the driver side window will not roll up or down.
I am now thinking its a bad motor or ground. The only issue is I'm not the greatest when it comes to electrical so I was hoping to find some guidance. I mean, I know enough to get myself in trouble but not enough to get myself out of it lol.
Has anyone had to replace a window motor or had to check to see if it was even getting current? I'd appreciate any info or help in this area.
I must step out for work but will be back in a few hours so this is the reason i may not reply right away.
All I know is that the mechanical system is VERY fragile. A bolt worked loose on mine and the lift mechanism dropped, tearing the mounting points in the door. Kevin at AHQ fixed it and it works pretty well, but I guess the ideal fix is to replace the door - not the best design from Subaru.
My warning would be: If you hear the motor running but struggling, switch off and don't touch the power until the mechanical stuff has been looked at.
