If you have access to a terminal kit you can transfer the old connector to the new motor.

If you do not, you can cut the old connector off and splice it onto the new motor, OR you can call some parts stores in your area to see if they have a matching connector you can use to update your wiring harness or replace the plug on the motor. You might want to update the wiring harness on the car so you don't splice the motor wires in case if fails quick and you have to return it.

Hey you guys. I got the right adapter today, Dorman sent me two of the same adapters so I just exchanged one of them. Everything is installed but the passenger window still does not budge. No sound or sight of life. Any suggestions?

Did you check the door switch? It's not always the motor. Could even be the wiring where it goes between the door and body.

I checked the door switch. The driver side window works and sunroof. Maybe it's the wiring?

I can't get to the service bulletins, but I distinctly remember a bulletin about wiring in the door jamb pass-thru chafing and breaking. You might want to check them (they are in the rubber tube in the front door jamb) on both driver and passenger side.
