Q: Car window not coming up

asked by on

The driver's side window is not coming up.

This is a common problem. The most likely causes are the window motor, or the window switch. These are used very often and, over time, can break down and fail. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come to you and diagnose what is causing your window to not go up.
