Hey all! I'm helping a friend who wants to use his power window control switch in his 2001 Dodge RAM 1500 to control his power windows. Issue is, he purchased the passenger door from eBay which has built in power windows and door locks with controls on the door. Because his truck was a base model and did not have those options, I'm trying to wire it with relays or a window switch module, but the way his OEM power window control works, 1 wire (yellow) sends a "negative" whenever you toggle the control to open or close the window. The other 4 wires connect to the power window motor to make it go up/down. Are there any wiring options outside of the standard 2 relay with 2 negative trigger set up or is there a module to purchase that can use the 1 trigger wire? I'm not aware of one and really unclear how Dodge would control the power window the way it's currently wired.
More info:
I've installed an after market power window kit and power door lock kit on the driver door and have it wired to his alarm so that both driver and passenger windows roll up and doors lock when it is armed. I installed 2 window switches in the center console that controls both his windows independently (up/down). But again, he wants to use the OEM controls on passenger door to control the passenger window and door lock switch to lock/unlock both driver/passenger doors.
Thanks in advance for any help!

without knowing exact part numbers if you get the same gnd signal for up AND down on that switch then that is likely parts for a can bus or similar system not controlled inside the door.   basically its data and your not going to be able to use it for what you want.
