Question

since you said the motor gets hot, i presume you have the door panel off. does the motor get hot running by itself? disconnect the window regulator and operate the motor and see if it gets hot and check the window manually to see if it is hard to raise/lower. there could be a problem with the wiring if the window goes up/down ok by hand and the motor gets hot by itself.

window

thanks for help, I tried it without the window, it clicked and stopped, bought new motor and seems to be working fine now. The one I took out was a new one, must have just been bad from start.
thanks for the help mikeTN
