i took the door panel off and took the motor apart. cleaned the brushes and wound the motor armature to spin the window up. Unless you have some motor armature experience I would not recommend it. Then i found out that the motor will work going down ,but only from the passenger switch ,but not the master switch. I asked my kids and they think they were lowering the window from the master control then hit the passenger switch at the same time.I think they burned up one of the master switches. I took both sets of switches and tested the passenger switch. It has continuity on different terminals both up and down. This tells me it should be good. The master control is a mess and a maze of plastic and electronics. I got just so far and quit. I did put the window back up again and the door back together. The master switch may be bad ,but I will wait until I find one at the local u pick junkyard. Much easier than trying to fix it after i take it apart and destroy it.. At least it is drivable for the winter.
I also put in another alternator that i got from the the junkyard. I had it tested at autozone and although my cousin who works there said it had a bad bearing it tested out fine and is a lot quieter than the one I replaced. Not bad for $16. I also got a jensen cd player with a ipod input and the wiring harness from this 1996 I have been picking parts off. It went in pretty well, looks and works good. That was part of my twins birthday present . They seem to like it. Another $22 well spent.
