Hi, thanks for writing in. The window regulator is most likely broken and no longer will lift the motor. I recommend having the door panel removed and check the window regulator to see if it is broken or the motor and regulator needs replaced. If you would like help, consider having an expert automotive technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to inspect and diagnose this issue for you, and make or suggest any repairs as needed.
