Default power window problem

1989 camry the front passenger side window goes up but wont go down. i
changed the motor and switches (i got from a pick a part). you can hear the
motor click when you do up on the switch but nothing on when going down.
ill do some more checking but any ideas?

Try measuring the voltage at the motor. There might be a break in the
wire. If that's the case you'll see voltage when closing the window but
no voltage when opening the window. Check Autozone's free online repair
guide on the schematics.

Disconnect the motor plug, Apply 12 v direct to the motor change polarity
one way up one way down

thanks. yeah i tried that and it works fine when 12v direct. it goes up and
down but after changing the passenger and driver switches it now only goes
up so i guess i could try getting a few more switches at pick a part and see
what happenes.

IT is very common for the master switch to be bad
Get a factory wiring diagram/ repair manual

when you say nothing when going down .. theres different kinds of
nothing! like if there is a mechanical resistance or a jam perhaps the
motor is getting power but the thing doesn't move. if you can measure
electrically then see if there is any voltage going to the motor at all
