check if its plugged in

also put an ohmmeter across the pins on the switch with it unpluged and check to see that the switch works (should be Open circuit/high resistence when not pressed, and closed circuit/low resistance when pressed)

some people unplug them for security reasons means you can leave the window down a lil bit and not worry about people poking a wire in to trigger the button

anyone who can make a rod to reach the button in the middle of the car can also make a rod to pull the other side interior door handle which will unlock the car
