1993 VW eurovan driver side power window won't operate. I connected the switch to the passenger side window, and it works fine. The passenger side switch fails to operate the driver side window. Tested the line voltage, and I'm getting voltage on one wire with the ground on the frame, but not the other. I jumped the motor with current directly from the battery and I can make the window go up and down by alternating the polarity. What should I do next?

I have a 1984 mercedes 300d that my son bought and the drivers side window is down and will not operate. I replaced the switch which was broken and have replaced a couple of fuses.

I checked for power at the terminal block on the door where there is a green and a black wire but there appears to be no power going to the motor if I'm checking it right?.
