Subject: Re: power window motor dead

i had the same problem w/my ;85 900S, and this is what i found out... by the by, do not tell your service shop you did this... i ended troubleshooting the motor, it was all right... what i found was that the wiring that runs through to the engine compartment ( the small area between the fender and the side a'firewall" ) had frayed and corroded... it is a tight doing, but all you need to do is resplice the bad area and you are done... ( it took me such a long time to get the motor pulled to test the system, but it was worth the time for what i hope to be an ongoing relationship with my used SAAB) George Lin wrote in message <362CB5DE.BCE37B53nopsamedu>... >Hello all, > >In my 88 Saab 900S, the driver side power window motor and regulator >died with the window wide open.
