Q: Window won't go down

asked by on

My driver's side door window will not go down.

Hello. This is a common issue that many 350Z owners encounter. The cause of the problem is usually due to a faulty window regulator but of course it could be a faulty switch, fuse, or window motor. I suggest getting the electrical components on your vehicle examined to determine which is faulty. YourMechanic provides this service if that is of interest to you.
