Yeah thats the button I was talking about.

The way I would test your issue is by checking the terminals on the motor for voltage when u try to move the window. If its getting 12v but the window is not moving, then u either have a bad motor or your window is misaligned and something is blocking it from going up.

The calibration button is only for setting the AUTO up/down function. It will still work normally in "manual mode" by moving the switch to the first position.

Are you sure you got the regulator put together correctly?

Can you place your hand UNDER the window and help lift it while the motor is engaged?

Sounds like a weak motor.

Jump the motor wires directly to the battery if u can. See if it goes up like that.

I wouldn't bother, replace with a new motor, that's a classic sign of motor failure.

Ok something is broken in your regulator. Are you sure you put it all together properly? One corner pivots so it can be disassembled once it's removed.

Check for something like the cable being off a roller or some mechanical failure like that.

Stock as of now
Hey, I don't exactly know what's causing this problem, but I know from my 05 the windows didn't work when I bought it it was because the window locks was broken causing the windows to not move at all. The mechanic replaced it and the windows worked fine afterwards. Maybe something to look into.

This is gonna be difficult to diagnose without actually seeing how it moves in person.

But if everything is installed and aligned correctly and the window has a hard time going up, then its probably a bad motor.
