Dead window...again, help before blow more money.

You guys are awsome as usual. Lots of ideas and very helpful...much more than other "bimmerforums"..

My 328is passenger window, will not go up or down., been dead since I bought it last August. I took the panel off, but due to being rivets, scared the Shiat out me...I put it back not fixing the window.

I've tried switch the button, no go. I plug up the motor...I heard something, but nothing goes up or down.

I found a junk regulator with motor a the bone yard. But when test, this junk unit only goes down on slight. Should I take the junk regulator and put in my original motor?

first things first. check with a test light to see if the motor is getting power. if so, then make sure the circuit has ground. if power and ground are present, then replace the motor. (or you could whack it with the butt end of the screwdriver and see if it makes it work...replace it if it does this, though).

if no power, try swapping a window switch. they're all the same.

if that works, then the problem is the switch.

if not, then check the fuses.
