Yes, if the window regulators are good, you can easily "force" the
by hot wiring at the switch. If you use fused test leads, you can do it
by trial and
error or you could check wiring diagram to see which wire goes where.
DO NOT try to lift the window by hand. This puts slack in the cable and
leads to terminal breakdown of the window regulator.
