Q: Driver's side window not rolling up or down

asked by on

My driver's side window will not roll up or down.

If the window has suddenly failed and will no longer move it is caused by a bad window motor. The window motor will fail at just about any time and this will occur. I typically start by removing the door panel to see if there is power at the motor. If there is no power at the motor, then the motor needs to be replaced. If you need to have this done, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose and repair your window issue.
