Power window switch Torrix BTESGDG

I think my power window (driver's side) switch (Torrix BTESGDG) is toast. I have power to the fuse and the switch but nothing moves. The window did work before although I think sometimes it did not function. Turns out the switch is some sort of rare Italian switch. Any ideas as to where to get one or a replacement US switch that is compatible?

TIA

Brian

Doesn't look at that special to me.

Maybe not it exactly, but 5 wire power window switches aren't rare:


Electric-Life Replacement Power Window Switches 4910-10-142


Little more poking around found this:
Winnebago power window switch
(Says it's a Torrix.)

One more:
Ebay Universal switch
(Is my cheapskate side showing?)

Get a voltmeter and check voltages.

Assuming fuses checked but confirm voltage someplace at switch then check motor.

Compare against opposite door.

Set to ohms and map out which connections on the switch connect with each action.

Likely has reversing action meaning hot and ground are connected to switch and come out one way for up and opposite for down.

Or depending on motor could be wire one for up and wire 2 for down.

Next check power and ground into switch then with your map confirm power to motor.

Could be bad motor and using test leads to supply power direct to motor after unplugging it could verify that but be sure hands not inside of door as you can get hurt badly by moving parts
