Question about 2003 Dodge Dakota Club Cab
My trucks window doesn't want to roll up or down anymore. I rolled in down and it went down just fine and now it doesn't want to go up. It only goes about 5 inches up and gets stuck. I rolled it down after a snow storm. Im not sure if its off the tracks or if it needs a fuse. Where is the window fuse located on a 2003 Dodge Dakota.
I respectfully disagree.
WD-40 contains volatile ketones that will damage the rubber.
Pure silicone spray is the ticket here.
What you have going wrong is a bad "positive temperature coefficient thermister" in the window motor. It cannot be replaced, it is part of the motor assembly. You are going to probably need to replace the motor in the near future. The PTC understands a slight overheat condition, and when the motor "drags", or goes slow, the PTC opens up like a circuit breaker. Then, after it cools off, it closes, and the motor works again.
Lube the rubbers with silicone, and consider replacing the motor.

SOURCE: Power windows roll down slowly
You can try a dry lube or lithium grease on the slow ones, but it sounds more like you need new window motors. Unfortunately Saturns are plastic cars, and... The window motors are not too difficult to change and it requires removing the outer door panel to make it easier to access.

If you have power windows it should be a broken cable, If its manual then it should be the crank asm. or the white plastic trac, it may torn at the end.

I had the problem of the drivers window rolling back down. This was fixed by removing the electrical connector located behind the door hinge. It looks like an oblong block. You have to prise the top ribbed part right up then pull the block out. Leave out for about 1 minute. Replace it
