    I HAVE A 1995 GMC YUKON AND SOMETIMES OUT OF THE BLUE MY WINDOWS JUST STOP WORKING BOUGHT A NEW SWITCH THINKING THAT WAS THE PROBLEM BECAUSE IF I PULL THE CONNECTOR OUT OF THE SWITCH I CAN STICK PINS IN AND SUPPLY POWER TO THE MOTORS TO RAISE MY WINDOWS BUT EVEN WITH THE NEW SWITCH THEY DIDN;T WORK FOR TWO DAYS AND THEN I LEAVE FOR WORK THIS MORNING AND THEY WHERE WORKING ANY IDEAS WHAT THIS MAY BE?

    Motor could be going bad, I had a car where the driver side would only go down when it was hot outside

    LOL, I'M AT WORK, I HAVE TO TYPE ALL MY REPORTS IN CAPS SO I LEAVE THEM ON, MY MOTORS WORK FINE BECAUSE THEY WHERE STUCK DOWN AND I DISCONNECTED THE SWITCH AND PUT 12V TO THEM AND ROLLED THEM UP THAT WAY, THE DOOR LOOKS WORK AND THE SWITCH LIGHTS UP WHEN I CUT THE LIGHTS ON, BUT IT'LL STOP WORKING OUT OF NOWHERE
    AND WILL NOT WORK FOR A DAY OR TOO AND THEN IT'LL SUDDENLY START WORKING AGAIN BUT I TRIED A NEW SWITCH AND NOTHING, BUT THE POWER IS THERE SO I'M AT A LOSS
