Rear window on 2004 Acura mdx

I have a rear window that failed window just slid down and won't stay up. From other posts I assumed motor/regulator problem. I changed out motor/regulator assembly now window will not go up or down. All other windows function normally so I assume not any type of fuse problem. If anyone has any thoughts I would appreciate it. Window is now in the down position and I really would like to not have to remove it again.

Is the rear window still on the track? Did you check the fuses? (Although I am not sure where the fuse would be for the rear windows).

Yes the window is in the track and fuse in engine compartment checks out ok (all other windows work. Tried to check for voltage at connector from car to motor I get nothing

I would think that the switch would have to be depressed in order to have voltage present at that connection

Was the cable broken on the old regulator? Did you get a new OEM regulator or something else?

Yes the cable was broken, i replaced the entire motor and regulator with a dorman replacement. The motor in the old unit would not even hum after the window just slid down that why I thought the motor was probably the culprit

Seems strange that something else would break just as the regulator broke. The fact you couldn't hear the motor working even after it broke is weird. I would swap the left and right regulators, just to see if the problem follows the regulator or stays at the door. Don't install them but plug them in and see if they work. A bit of work but the new regulator could be bad.

Thanks, another question would the door switch itself have to be plugged in? I was trying to test it using the drivers side control but would the rear door control have to be connected for that to work? Kind of like a 3 way switch in a house?

Are there two connectors? One for front switch and one for the rear door switch? I would plug it in and see what happens. It could be like you say and be a type of 3-way switch.
