Q: Driver's side window is stuck and won't go up.

asked by on

Driver's side window won't go up.

If the window will not go up it is possible that the switch or the motor have gone bad. Enlist the help of a professional from YourMechanic to test your switch first. If the switch tests bad then you should have the switch replaced. If the switch is good and all wiring seems to be in working order the motor is the next likely cause. If the motor is found to be faulty, have the motor replaced as soon as possible to prevent leaving your vehicle unsecured with its window down.
