did that window just stop altogether (work one day then nothing the next) or did it start acting weird before it died. like it it went down, but didn't want to come back up or worked off and on with holding the switch?

first option is most likely motor, second is the switch.
So would you say that the motor and regulator will hve to be bought as one piece not seperate? If I have power coming from the switch the chances are that it's very unlikely for it to be the switch? Is there any way I can test the motor with two pieces or one piece of wire?

It just packed up one day I had no problems with it. Then went to put my window down and It wouldn't come down. What if unplugged the plug from the motor,
Plugged a multimeter in and then press the switch. ?
