Power seat wont move backward in 2009 Hummer H2

first check to see if anything is blocking the tracks if so remove. next it could be the switch if passenger side has controls try swapping them if passenger side does not have controls take switch off and check the resistance in the switch when in the on position (forward or back) if it is not the switch motor is probably burned out if passenger side again has motor try swapping. (passengers don't need to be comfortable) or just buy a new motor. hope this helps

95 monte carlo passenger side window wont work

When a window switch is not being used, it has the ground circuit on both sides. Then when you move it to up or down, you apply power to one side of the motor. Thats how the motor is able to run in both directions.
So you should have power on one side or the other when you move the switch. Have you checked it for power and ground ?

My convertible top on my mustang gt wont go up or down

Check to see if the top motor is running when you press the top up switch. Car has to be in park with emergency brake engaged. If motor runs but top will not move or binds then one or both of the lift cylinders are bad. Usually there will be hydraulic fluid leaking from the cylinders if one or both will not hold pressure. Replace cylinders if bad. The top could probably be manually closed if the lift cylinder arms are detached from the top frame.
If motor does not run when the switch is pressed then check your fuses, the switch and the connector at the top motor to see if it is getting power.

Electric window doesn't work

Either switch, motor or even the Window Control Relay. Before performing any tasks ensure that the GND (Neutral) exists everywher it's supposed to (motor & relay especially)
To check the motor itself, disconnect it from any wiring an measure if there's any resistance betveen motor connection pins. or when its disconnected force some 12 volts to the motor and it will move up or down if it's fine. If it moves then go to the switch, and using multimeter measure if there comes 12volts. if it does check if it goes out from the switch when pressed. If it does, and you've already tested the motor and it was ok so the problematic is Relay (might be open circuit, defective soldering on the relay's circuit board). f nothing comes out from the switch just replace it.

If you need any further assistance just let me know.

Best of luck

Mustang 2001 convertible top goes up but not down.

Sounds like the switch is bad. Also check the relays. You might have one for up and one for down.

Convertable top wont go down..I hear motor running

Your top motor is in the trunk on the drivers side wall behind the panel. Remove the two screws to remove the cover. Check the fluid level in the reservor. Check that no lines have come off of the pump and have someone pushing the top down button while checking. If this is not the problem, then it is a possibility that the e-brake connection is not working right.
