Q: Driver's side window not working

asked by on

The driver's side window won't come up.

The most likely cause is a bad motor and regulator. The regulator’s plastic rollers come apart from age, and cause the motor to wind the cable into it, bending or damaging the motor. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your entire power window system, and recommend the best path to repair.
