Q: Q: Window broken

asked by on

The window won't go down or up.

If the window will not operate at all, then it is almost always the window motor on this vehicle. This is a common failure. I would remove the door panel and see if there is voltage going to the window motor when moving the switch. If there is, then the motor is bad and needs to be replaced. If not, then the switch may be the problem. If you are wanting to have this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to inspect your windows and make the correct repairs.
