New Diesel W123 Member

Hi to all. I am so glad I found this great resource site to share my MB experience and learn how to maintain these grate cars . I recenlty acquired a w123 1983 300 D Turbo with 129 k miles. The car was mostly used as a backup vehicle and was used very little. After changing all the fluids and filters, adjusted valves with info and links I found on this site I think I am in great shape to take my first long trip.

Besides the a/c that blows warm air - according to the previous owner it worked some time ago and I was hoping for some direction with the driver side window as my electrical troubleshooting skills are limited.

The window motor works I took it out and tested it at the battery. I measured the power at the window feed and it registers 12+ V. However when I connect the motor I register 0V. Does this mean I have a short somewhere? What are the next steps? Can this be reapaired or do I have to leave with it?
