Hello Gary..
Sorry about the confusion - it was likely a system can happen as with anything Im afraid..
Ok - with this then - can you use a test meter - or 12v test lamp... connect to the pins on the motor and operate the switch to send the window down.. obviously it should light / register a reading.. Once confirmed on the circuit you know works, try the others till you get a reading for the "up".. If you get a reading, you know the switch / circuit is working and the fault is with either the replacement motor ( it does happen ) - or, something on the actual mechanism is binding - stopping the window go up.
If you don't get a reading - then you need to check the wiring back through the door - through also the "link / wire " tube to the body - and to the switch for damage to the wires - that will on the UP circuit cause this.
If no wire faults are found, then the switch is your suspect. Again, replacements can be faulty.
If you then rule that out - the suspect is going to be either the drivers door switch panel - which has overall control of all the windows- or, the switch that you can use to stop the backs working ( the master switch )
So that's the way to work through this one and get this cured for you Gary.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
-- Meantime - Please do click on the Exc / Ok rating for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that .
.. Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --
Best Rgds, MIKE.

Hi Mike got my son to test all the wires could not find any probs, looked at all the relays only thing we could detect was the body control module it's the one with 3 blocks in,when operating the windows down they all make a clicking sound but operating the windows up the only one that does not make clicking sound is the rear passenger window that won't go up,not sure if has anything to do with the windows cheers Gary.

HI there Gary-
Are you saying that all the windows work ok now - except the rear pass one?
Rgds, MIKE....................

Hi Mike The windows all worked except the nearside rear one anyway,just asking has the body control module got anything to do with the power windows if so maybe a new one would solve the problem Gary.
