Q: Power window not working

asked by on

The power window is not working.

A: The most likely causes of your power window...

The most likely causes of your power window not working are the motor, or the regulator. If you hear the motor noise, but the window does not move, then the regulator is broken. If you do not hear the motor, then the motor is the most likely source of failure. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your power window system, and recommend the best path to repair.
