Q: Driver's side window rolls down, but won't come back up.

asked by on December 28, 2015

The window on the driver's side goes all the way down, but will not come back up.

There are a few possibilities as to why your window will not come back up. First could be a bad window switch. Next, would be a failure of the window regulator or motor. This issue is not uncommon. I would enlist the help of a mechanic to test these window components to see which one has failed so your window will be functional again.
