Q: Power window not working

The driver's side power window is not working.

Hello! Commonly when a window stops working it is the window regulator causing the troubles. I suggest having a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, check the window regulator and window switch to determine why your window is not working. One of those two components are most likely causing the window malfunction.
