Q: Driver's side window not working.

asked by on

The front driver's side power window will not operate.

The power window motor, switch or regulator may be at fault here. The most common issue is the motor failure. The door panel will have to be removed and the motor and switch tested by a qualified mechanic. Once the system is checked then a proper diagnosis of the failed part or parts can be done. If a blown fuse is found then a motor may be the cause.
