Q: Driver window won't go up

asked by on

The driver window is stuck. I can't get it to go up.

I’ll assume you have power windows. There are two key components. The lift motor, and the regulator. Either one could be the problem. It could also be a defective switch, or a wiring issue. A qualified mechanic from YourMechanic can come out and diagnose your window issue to have the correct repairs made.
