Default tailgate window motor

ok so my 1989 k5 blazer window motor when you hit the button it will go down but when you hit the button up the motor does nothing. I bought a new motor and the same problem exist the motor works great when you hit down but not up so what could it be?

Are you getting power on the up circuit in the tailgate at the motor? It is very possible that the lockout switch has failed. The lockout switch is not in the down circuit.

the motor is grounded to tailgate, the two wires going to it are positive, one for up and one for down. if its not that safety switch it could be that wire is cut somewhere

Pull the connector out of the safety switch and jump it. Then see if the window goes up.
