Q: Window not working

asked by on

The driver's side window doesn't open or close.

Hello! That is a problem that several owners of the 350Z have faced. I personally have repaired three 350Z windows, and all three had a malfunction of the driver’s side window; in each case, the cause was the driver’s side window regulator. The switch of the window should be checked to ensure that it is sending the proper current to the window regulator. If it is, then the window regulator likely is at fault. If the switch is not sending the proper current, there could be a blown fuse, or the switch itself may need to be replaced. I suspect having a mobile mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to your vehicle’s location to diagnose the cause of your inoperative window, and recommend the best path to repair.
