Q: Window not going up

asked by on

The window won't go up on the driver's side.

The window regulator or motor is the most likely cause of the window not going down. If you hear the motor running, but the window does not move, then the regulator is broken. If you do not hear the motor, then the motor may be the cause. I recommend you have a qualified mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, to come by and inspect your car’s window issue.
