Diagnosing Driver Side Power Window issue

The driver side window has slowly gone out. I replaced the switch. Passenger side window operates fine using the new switch. Drivers side seems to try to engage and moves 1/8th of an inch. For a while it would go up and down sometimes. Now it is not working except it appears it is getting a power signal. My thought would be a failed window front motor but thought I would ask before replacing using this guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6vyEs4H...

But as autos are not my forte I thought I would ask first.

Or do I need the relay?

Hey @mayer you might want to check the regulator itself . They sometimes bind and cause the electric motor to run slow till it gets to the point were the regulator wont move at all . It can also bind on the window rails. The tracks can start to bind and cause the motor to slow. When I replace a motor for a window I usually replace the regulator as well .Let me know how it works out for your Caddy

Same problem with my 2002 Eldorado but for the life of me I cannot identify a “connector" inside of the door panel. There is a switch on the arm rest which is easily accessed and a two wire connector on the motor, both seem fine. I have squeezed and filed, and framed and twisted both the switch and the 2 wire connector with no results. There is no nut on the arm rest panel and cannot identify a plastic connector twist. Moose
