before drivers side stopped working a few weeks ago it worked a little at first, it would move up and down about 1-2 inches and then wouldn't do anything, this was before it died

I've just fitted the replacement and this one is doing the same thing, could it be switch related? need some help on this as I can't get the window fully up and I don't have a garage to store it.
only other thing I can think is the cable inside the motor can they twist or anything?

What exactly did you replace? The cable has probably snapped somewhere along the regulator/motor mechanism, yes.

Switches can be faulty.

Temp way of moving windows is to remove doorcard and connect 12v and ground directly to the window motor which only has 2 wires so it's not exactly rocket science


The motor will move in the direction relative to the polarity. If it's moving in the wrong direction then reverse the polarity to get the direction you want.
