Power mirrors. Left and down only?

Ok so my power mirrors had completely stopped working for a few weeks. Went in and pressed the pins back in place on the back of the switch and now they're back to what they were doing before. Only the left and down work. Both sides do the same thing. From the wiring diagram I found there are seven wires: power and ground, pass side vertical, pass side horizontal, drivers side vertical, drivers side horizontal, and what I think is the ground for all 4 motors. As best I can figure out, the motors are only getting power in one direction. Is this a sign of a bad wire somewhere or a bad switch or something else?

As they use the same wires for both motor directions, it definitely sounds like a switch problem, mine does the same thing.

^ I think the 4.3L waiting to go in the truck is your problem. Karma's a bitch when you mess with shit like that. :D
