      Sounds like you mixed up the leads from the motor somehow...did it have a pigtail?

      It came with the wiring attached, just had to plug the one end straight into the window plug.

      Swap the wires around on the terminals on the motor. The window goes down when 1 terminal has 12V and the other terminal has ground, and goes up when 12V & ground are applied to the opposite terminals via the switch.

      Swap the wires on the motor terminals and Bob's your uncle!
