Default Window Regulator Problems

Hello all and let me say In advance, thank you for all of your help.

I have a 2003 PT Cruiser Std Base Model.

I was driving over a set of railroad tracks about a week ago when right after my right rear window went into the full down mode.

I then opened up the right rear door and proceeded to try and problem solve the issue. The window would not rise up. End. Period. dot. Took a few but I found out that the window regulator was CONSTANTLY attempting to roll the window regulator down. Once it reached the bottom, it just did nothing else but got the motor warm. I turned the lockout mode on and the regulator stopped. I had access to a switch and regulator so I hooked both up. With the interlock still engaged the power was turned on and no action. Turn the interlock off and the regulator immediately rolls the window regulator to the bottom and then stops and then starts getting warm as the motor is now trying to burn up.

I have inspected the wiring in the door for any abrasions and found none so I don't think its a direct short however I cannot dig it out of the frame channel to check its entire length.

Is there an alternate type of controller that may have been borked?? Has anyone ever experienced this? What should I be looking for now if anything?
