    The Power Window Motors Are Still In The 69 Satellite But No Switches Hooked Up..

    There Are Green And Purple Wires Coming From Each Motor.

    How Would I Go About Testing Them To See If They Work?

    Thanks

    Attach battery power to wires, motor should turn one direction. Reverse power polarity and motor should turn other direction.

      That’s all you have to do is hook up 12 V to them. Connect positive to green and negative to purple, and the motor will turn one way. Connect negative to green and positive to purple, and the motor will turn in the opposite direction. Unlike most electrical items in a car, window motors do not need to be grounded.
