Q: How do I fix the window on the driver side?

asked by on

I have power windows. My car window was rolled up. I tried to roll it down and it would not go completely down. I could roll it back up and the back down to the position it would no go any further too. I tried pushing it down it went down but now when I try to roll the window up it goes 2 inches up and then I hear the motor making it go immediately back down. It's not liking it is falling the motor is still working just not correctly. Also when I hold the button up it stays up at the 2 inches. I try to pull it up when I'm holding it there but it doesn't improve. I'm not sure if I'm not strong enough or it just won't move. I can't get it to work correctly. What seems to be the problem? Do I need to replace the motor or is it something else?

My car has 111 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
