Q: Front window won't roll up

asked by on

My front driver's side window won't roll up.

If the window goes down but not up, the problem could be the window regulator or switch. If it doesn’t move in either direction the problem could be the window motor or switch. A technician, such as one from YourMechanic, would have to inspect the window motor to see if it is getting power from the switch. If not, the switch is to blame.
