window regulator

I installed a new drivers side window regulator today. I thought the job went well, but upon reassembly I discovered that the automatic window opener and closer (where one flick of the switch will send it all the way up or down) is not working now.

Any ideas what I did wrong?

JUst did mine as well. Pop the switch plate out of the door and inspect the plugs. Perhaps one is broken or not plugged in all the way.....

Thanks,

Rich

My drivers side wont come down. It would work, then not work and froze in the up position. I need to open it up myself to see. It is not the regulator , as when the passenger side went on mine,it would still try to go up and down. We'll seee. Glad it fixed itself 4 u.
