Q: Window controls not functioning properly.

asked by on

The driver's side window controls have quit working. I can still unlock and lock the doors and adjust the mirror.

This is most likely the result of a failed power window motor or regulator. The regulator is a scissor-type lift that moves the window up and down when powered by the motor. A professional, such as one form YourMechanic, can remove your door panel to inspect these components and repair your vehicle.
