Thank you s60six
How do I go about running 12v power to the motor? If it is the motor like you have suggested, how do you get to it through the door? In your experience are they expensive?
Thank you again for your help.

Re: Response to answer
You will need to remove the door panel and unplug the window motor then run two wires from the battery one on the neg and 1 on the pos to the terminals on the window motor (be careful not to touch them together! the wires i mean).........as for the motor i found them here http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carcode,1217225,parttype,1516,a,Search%20for%201997%20OLDSMOBILE for less than 30.00 but you could probably find one in a local scrap yard foe less maybe If you could please rate the solution for me that would be great! thx. If you have any other questions please post a comment in this or the earlier post..........Always glad to help!

it can only be 3 things.
1: no power to motor (12v not there active or is too low)
2: bad motor. 12v there its dead.
3: jammed up track overloading said motor.
a voltmeter solves #1 and 2 in seconds.
According with the Ford Owners Manual (page 226 and next) I suggest to check the next locations: - Battery Junction Box fuse # 6-60AMP will feed Central Junction Box (
under driver side) - the inline circuit breaker #47-30AMP, through the
Accessory Delay Relay, powered by fuse #17-15AMP to the Window Control
Check the fuses, and for 12v at the points. Then check for 12v
at the driver side door switch pannel.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate
your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about
check your ground and clean it , also check your power source you may have 12v but not enough amps to make it work if you are using the standard horn power trying to run an airhorn motor may not be enough but most likely would be a ground problem
1) Check for +12v power from the fan select switch at the resistor pack - (If +12v is available there you may again have a faulty resistor pack).
2) Apply +12v directly to the fan motor to check that it runs ok.
Check for +12V at the master switch.
You may have a corroded or pinched door-jamb wire.
If there is not 12V, check your fusebox relays. CLICK HERE for an owners manual in PDF format, and there is a fusebox layout in the ROADSIDE EMERGENCIES section starting on PDF page 274. IT is a circuit breaker in position 14.

Remove the front door trim panel. 2.Disconnect the 2P connector from the motor. Connect the motor terminals directly to battery voltage
(12V) and check that the motor operates smoothly. Next, reverse the polarity and
check that the motor operates smoothly in the reverse direction. If the
operation is abnormal, replace the motor.
