Thank you for your inquiry. If the window will not go up or down easily, or seems to shift during operation, the window regulator may have a mechanical failure. This includes a broken mechanical connection to the glass or even the window sliding off track. If the glass seems secure and will not move at all, a technician can check the electrical circuit for blown fuses or failed components. Have a mechanic, like the ones at YourMechanic, take a look behind the interior door skin and test the window's electrical system.
