You mean you just plugged in the uninstalled motor, let it run freely, and it still quit on you?
Did you have both the local (Left Rear) and master (Driver'* Door) switch panels in place? I think they both have to be plugged into the wiring harness, because each one interlocks the other (so you can't have a situation where the driver is pressing the Down button while the left rear passenger is pressing the Up button, that kind of thing).
If so, maybe there'* a break in the wiring harness where it jumps the gap between door and pillar, either at the left rear door or (more likely) at the driver'* door. Might be interesting to keep trying the buttons while you slowly open and close each door, especially the driver'*.
Also, try wiggling the switch lever on both the panels; make sure that the one not being used is properly centered, or else it can interrupt the other switch for that window. Good luck.
