Q: Car window not rolling up

asked by on

The window in my car will not roll up.

I’ll assume you have power windows. If the window is on track and does nothing when you hit the up button, it could be caused by several things. The switch, window motor, or wiring could be faulty and in need of replacement. If the other windows are working, the power circuit is ok. If a wire has failed, the most common spot is in the door jamb. If the motor is bad, it will need to be replaced. If the glass is off track, the regulator is usually to blame. If you would like this repaired, consider having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come and diagnose why your window is not going up or down.
