Q: Power window is broken

asked by on

The power window on the passenger's side is not working.

The window motor or regulator is at fault for your window not moving. If you hear a noise when you try to move the window, then the regulator is broken. If you do not hear a noise, then your motor is not working, and would need to be checked to see if it is getting the proper power from the switch. You may have a defective motor and regulator. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, remove the door panel, and run a diagnosis on your broken power window.
