Yes replace window motor just replaced one doing the same as your problem. Window would start to go up and stop and same thing going down. Replaced motor now working.

Check connection at window motor ,,most likely motor is bad Replace!!


If your test light lite up when you touched one wire going to motor with window switch clicked in the up or down position then put test light to other wire and click switch other way and it lights up you have power going to motor so that means motor is bad.
