Q: Power window not working

asked by on

The driver's side power window is not working.

The problem could be in the switch or the motor / regulator. It could also be a fuse. You will have to see if the motor is receiving power when the switch is pressed. If so, the motor is bad. If not, the switch is bad. I would suggest having a certified mechanic inspect your window in order to have the correct repairs made.
