    Hey cat community, I have a problem with my drivers side window,it went go upon down. I was going to installpuddle lights so I rolled it down took the screws out and pulled the door panel free then fished out the existing erlight wires which I cut in anticipation of wiring the new light ( which turns out one of them doesn't work) anyway I went to roll the windows up and realized only the passenger side worked. I can hear clicking but nothing helps, any help would be very much appreciated? ?

    Not sure why you cut the wires for the OEM lights. I never did. I spliced in the wires called out in the install instructions on the this forum. I would hook everything back like it was. Find the puddle lights DYI here and start again
    Good luck.

    I assume you reinstalled the door panel and you are trying to raise the window. If the door panel is not installed correctly at the top of the door you can pinch the glass and put the window in a bind.

    I put it all back together, no binding at all and i cut the wires to splice into but put them back together with butt connectors and they work fine

    Door Projector light install

    Make sure you have all the connector plugs fully seated and you did not drop anything in the door that could get caught in the mechanism. I am out of ideas at this point.

    Yes, my questions aren't about the lights, its about my window...... The only wires touched were the existing puddles, the door panel was only removed at the bottom by removing the 3 screws so I could get a look up in the and access those 2 wires

    Put it back to the way it was before ,see if it works!
    If so there's your problem
    If not look closely at connector pins and wires.
    All I can think of blindly...
    Good luck
