Q: Q: Window not working

asked by on

The window won't go up or down.

Hello! That is an extremely common issue that owners of your particular vehicle face. The window malfunction is usually caused by corrosion on the window switch. I suggest that the switch be opened and the circuit board inside of it inspected for corrosion. If the switch is fine, the second likely cause of the window malfunction is a faulty window regulator. A technician can test the regulator on your window by performing a continuity test.
