Q: Power windows falling down

asked by on

My power windows won't stay up.

Hi. When the window won’t stay up, it is a common sign of a faulty window regulator. A window regulator controls and holds the window in every position that it could possibly be in. A faulty regulator can cause a window to fall when put up, make noise when operating, or make it completely inoperable. There are also a few other less common reasons a window will not stay up. I would recommend having a Technician inspect the regulator, motor, and related switches to ensure the issue shows itself through testing before replacing any parts. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the window mechanism on your vehicle and replace any damaged parts.
