Q: Q: Window stuck down

asked by on

The driver's side window will not go up.

There could be several issues causing this. One of the most common is the window regulator itself. Other possibilities would be the window motor, or the window switch. The door panel will need to be removed to access the window motor and regulator. The voltage at the window motor needs to be checked to ensure that the switch is operating. The regulator needs to be checked to see if the cable is broken, or if one of the cable pulleys has failed. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will have the proper tools and knowledge to assist in the diagnosis and repair of the window lift system.
