Any ideas are welcome!


Check for corroded or loose connections as a first step. Try the extremes first (the switch and the motor connections) and if not, get an extension lead from the battery to the window motor and feed it from there to see if the motor is ok. Those checks are external but internally, you could have nacked motor brushes or even seized mechanical parts due to water ingress. Is that enough for now? Just to be getting on....

Good luck and welcome to the forum, as Brutus said to Julius Caesar....
