Q: Driver's window not working

asked by on

The driver's side power window won't roll up. The passenger's side window works.

The window switch would need to be checked to see whether or not it is sending power to the motor. If it is, than the motor may be bad. If the motor is moving, but nothing moves in turn, then the regulator is broken. I recommend that you have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to you and diagnose your window issue.
