Q: Power windows stopped working.

asked by on

The power windows won't go up.

Windows that don’t go either up, down or both can be caused by several things. Problems with the switch, circuitry, window motor or regulator are common causes. A trained technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the system and get your windows rollin’ again.
