Help! My drivers power window doesn't work

Hey guys I am having trouble with my 1997 Boxster. The drivers side window stopped working completely. The switch is good, power window fuse is good and I bought a window motor and installed and still nothing works? Any ideas? Also may not be of importance but before I parked the car for the winter the window was working. The battery did go dead while in storage, when I pulled car out of storage window did not work at all.
Thanks for all your help!!!!
Pat

The window regulator may be worn out completely.

One way to check it would be to disconnect the motor and leave it plugged in and see if it moves. If it does, then you have a regulator that needs replacement.

Amazing car, by the way! I'd like to make mine into what you have done one day, but keep it and not sell it

I don't think its the regulator because I plugged in the motor to the harness before installing into the regulator and it does not click or move etc. Still confused!
thanks

I too am having this issue with my passenger side window. Just stopped working one night (stuck at 1/8" lower than fully rolled up). So far I have checked the fuse, tested the switch and it works fine (tested it by hooking it to the driver side), unhooked the harness and plugged it into a new regulator with no movement. the only thing I can think of is if there is a short somewhere in the line, but that scares me to try and track down. Is there any other points on the system I can check or test?

the window does not move down when the door is open, or when the softtop latch us open.

i have not tried hooking a voltmeter to anything. is there a diagram that would show if there is any power or anything to the harness?
