Q: Windows not going up or down

asked by on

Both of my front windows will not go up or down.

If both of your front windows do not go up, that may be a sign of potential electrical problems. There may perhaps be a failed switch, or blown fuse, that is preventing the windows from receiving power, or perhaps failed window motors that have locked the windows in place. As these problems may potentially require disassembling the vehicle’s doors, I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one fro YourMechanic, properly diagnose the windows to ensure that the correct repairs are made.
