Perfect! I will go try that right away.

Default Black to Black Red to Green/White

John:

Thanks for the correction. I have re-configured to the correct way: Black to Black, Green & White to Red (power) to complete the circuit.



As soon as I attach power (RED) to Green, the power supply shorts, but I can hear a clicking in the motor, which is what I heard when I originally was debugging this issue, and the motor was still mounted on the truck lid. I heard the relay click, and then the motor click, but it won't spin. Since I was getting power to the harness it led me to believe that I do have a motor issue.

Since I corrected my wiring, I have re-created the same environment with the result of the motor not working.

Do you concur?

Yes, it sounds like the motor is defective. Let me look around here and see if I have any.
