Q: Q: Power window not working

asked by on

The passenger's side power window in my car is not working.

Hello, have you tried the window from the switch on the passenger door? If it works from that switch, there’s a chance that the switch group on the driver’s door has failed. If it doesn’t work from both switches, the door panel will have to be removed so that power and ground in both modes can be checked. If power and ground are good to the motor, the window motor itself should be checked along with the window regulator. For this, the motor may have to be disconnected and the window operated manually. If you need assistance with this, have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your window to make sure that the correct repair is made.
