Q: Passenger's window not coming up

asked by on

The passenger's window won't come up.

If you can hear a sound from the window motor when your attempt to roll the window up, the regulator is likely broken. If you hear no sounds when you try to roll the window up, the motor, switch or wiring could be faulty. I would recommend enlisting the help of a qualified technician to inspect your window system for faults. The most likely cause is a broken regulator which can normally be replaced within an hour. Regardless of the cause of this issue, I would recommend having this issue corrected as soon as possible as the security of your vehicle will be at risk with a window stuck down.
