Welcome to FRF. Have you taken the switches out and checked the connections?

bad switch?, but my guess is popping sound is loose regulator.. pull door panel off and see if it's loose

yeah i took the panel off and all the connections look good. not corroded or loose or anything. im wondering if there is a short somewhere.. and why would rolling up a window make a weird electrical noise and make both door lock pins on each door wiggle like its sending a short of electricity to them. driving me crazy!

Try swapping the switch if you can find another
