    Did you check them with the voltmeter like I explained before or you just look at them?

Have you check for 12 volts at the end of the connectors? If you haven't get a voltmeter and put the lead at the connector if you get 12v when you holfd the switch down then is the motor. If you don't get 12v then put one lead on the 12v pin at the connector and the other lead at ground on chassis(not the connector) while holding the leads in place press and hold the switch that corresponds to that connector and see if you get 12v at the voltmeter. If you do then you have an open ground somewhere.
    I may have done this wrong, I'll try again this weekend. But still looking for other options.


    I wondering if this has anything to do with the new window motor I put in. All these problems he has been having has come a day after the motor was installed. But that would not explain why it is effecting the drivers side when he also has the window fix done. That was been working for 3 months no issues. Except a blown fuse that I found when the windows/locks quit working.

    You need to check because if you are have 12v at the plugs (measuring at the plug itself, not measuring at chassis) then the motors will be bad. Now is kinda of weird that all your motors stopped working at the same time. By checking the way I posted it will give you an idea if you have a broken wire somewhere, have no power or the motors are bad. So when you get time check them and post back your findings. I have a feeling that you have an open ground somewhere but you need to confirm it with the voltmeter. You can also use the ohmmeter and check the ground wire at the plug to chassis ground and see if you have continuity.
