Q: Driver's side window not rolling up

asked by on

The driver's side window will not roll up. All of the other windows work fine from the same front panel.

Hello. If the window motor or window regulator is broken, this would prevent the driver’s side window from rolling up properly. It is also possible that both the window motor and window regulator are not working properly. It would be my recommendation to have the window motor and regulator replaced at the same time. This should be done by a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic.
