Q: Window won't roll up

asked by on January 22, 2016

My car window won't roll up.

In order to save your interior from the weather, I would recommend having this issue diagnosed and resolved immediately. Your door panel may need to be removed in order to inspect and fix this issue. Enlist the help of an expert technician, such as one from YourMechanic, to inspect the electrical portion of your window. The switch, regulator, motor and wiring are just a few possible causes of this issue.
