Q: Window will not close

asked by on

The driver's side window is down and won't close.

Hello. It sounds like the window motor failed. It is much easier for a failing motor to lower and window and not be able to close it. I would typically remove the door panel and first check the voltage at he motor when trying to open and close the window with the switch. If there is voltage then I would replace the window motor and regulator together. If there is no voltage then it may be the main switch.
