    FOUND THIS. THOUGHT IT WOULD BE USEFULL
    CREDIT GOES TO Justin8763 OF NICOCLUB.COM

    I read around here alot and though I might help out. I saw a few threads about people having trouble with their windows, and half the time it ends up being the amp, like mine...

    I read someone posted sometimes a connection within the amp box can go bad so I thought I'd provide pictures! with some info!
    Items needed:
    1.Solder
    2.Soldering Iron
    3.Philipshead screwdriver(for takin off ur door!)
    4.and a small flat head screwdriver for taking apart the amp box.
    If you don't know already the window amp is located in the drivers side door, and for an s14 its a small white box that looks like this


    after removing it, you gotta pry the black face with the 8 prongs off. there are snaps at these locations on the box. I kinda chipped of a bit of it cause I was rushing a bit.


    After you open it up, CAREFULLY pull out the circuit board...


    Flip it over and take a close look... you can see a broken connection that is easily fixable...


    Heat up your soldering iron, and solder the broken connection, something like this...


    let the solder cool for a few seconds, and slide the board back in! you might have some trouble if its the same connection as mine, since the sides of the box hold the board in. I had to resolder thinner to let it slide in. put it back together and roll down your window and enjoy the breeze! If you discover it is a bad connection, and follow these steps to fix it, you save yourself ~$160 from the dealer or ~$60 from ordering it online! I hope this helps...!
