The drivers side rear window wiring harness to the motor had shorted to the door frame. When I went to follow the harness I found the four wires melted together and just laying in there. I opened up the b pillar and found that the wiring harness had been cut and taped off. The previous owner stated that he had no knowledge of this and that he never used the rear window so he wasn't aware it wasn't working. I doubt that anyone would not have knowledge that the harness was cut and taped off.

As for the passenger window, I haven't fixed it yet but I feel strongly that it may be a shorted harness as well, seeing that I have the infamous rear passenger footwell water puddle whenever it rains heavily.

I guess Steve B was right when he said I definitely have 2 different problems.

Email me if you have any further questions (

Good luck,
