Q: Window switch broken

asked by on

My driver's side auto window switch does not work. The window is stuck in the down position.

Hello. This could be solved simply by replacing the window switch. However, it is also possible that there may be a problem with the window motor or regulator. I would suggest you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, come out and inspect your window and diagnose what is causing it to be stuck in the down position.
