Q: Power window doesn't work

asked by on

The driver's side power window does not work.

The window regulator may have broke and is binding the motor, or the motor itself may be bad. Both of these are common problems and if you hear crunching when the window switch is pushed, the regulator is broke. If you do not hear anything then the motor and regulator may be bad. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic inspect your power windows for you to determine what repairs are needed.
