electrical problem

my drivers side window will go down a few inches when the switch is pushed and then stop. a few minutes later it will go a bit further. the switch looked like it was arching so i went to the junkyard and put another in and the same problem was with that so the switches were good. i dont think the motor is bad since it does work a bit. my conclusion is that it is wireing. does anyone agree? i hate dealing with wireing and there are a lot in the door and i have no idea what they do. does anyone know how to fix this or how much it may cost to have a mechanic take the door apart and do a complete search for the problem? i dont know about the rest of you, but with summer coming i need to be able to roll down the window!!!

p.s. is there anyway to just put a crank on it and forget the electric

Just a wild guess but it probably is the motor on it's way out? Common with treps so I would assume it is but do not quote me on this or charge me the labour...lol. To me it isn't too bad of a job to replace then again all you have to do is purchase (if wanted to expensive and all) plug the wires to the new one and see if works. Try this for like 15 min on off as you can hear the motor working. Then I would assume you would be able to tell from there if you should replace it?...Hope this helps,

According to Mitchell's On Demand, which is a database that many auto repair places rely on for their diagrams and price quotes, it shows that the parts and labor costs for a 1997 window motor replacement costs about $60 in parts (part #R4624625) and 1.3 hours of labor, which I gather if a shop charges $70/hr, the grand total should be around $150.
