I have empathy for you. I have replaced both front window motor/regulator units in my son's 1991 Dynasty LE. Usually, if the power window will not go up or down the motor or regulator has failed. Don't keep messing with the power motor or you could damage other stuff like the window. Continuing to press the power window button is not going to make it work if the motor or regulator has failed. In my case the motors did not fail - the regulator assemblies failed. On our 1991, the regulator raises and lowers the window using a steel cable. What an engineering piece of crap! The first one failed when the cable jumped the groove in the take-up spool and kinked the cable. The second one failed because a plastic retainer that holds the end of the cable broke. Don't waste your time trying to buy just the motor or just the regulator. Buy them as an assembly. I priced one new at the dealer and had a near heart attack. The salvage yard is the only way to go. There are two type of motor/regulators. One uses a steel cable and the other uses a nylon gear assembly. They are both interchangeable and these things fit several Chrysler Corp models over several years. Which type is better - I don't know. I'm batting 0 for 2 on the steel cable type. I paid $65.00 for the plastic gear type and $75.00 for the cable type (it was normally selling for $85). If the salvage yard pulls the motor/regulator when you order it, ask them to give you the nuts and bolts and plastic pieces that mount the regulator to the door and window in case yours is damaged or loss. You will need to take off the door panel and carefully remove the moisture shield in order to get to the regulator. I won't go into detail here how to do that since I covered removal of the inner door panel in another question. Getting the motor/regulator assembly out of the door requires patience, but it does come out. Before you begin, just be sure to start with the window in the up position (held up by tape or some other means) and by removing the negative battery cable. Hope this helps. Good luck.
