Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I have taken the door panel off, looked inside. When using the button to roll up, no sound is heard. When using button to roll down (where it's stuck) sound is there and I can see the window move down. Would the motor be worn down so that it won't roll up? The window is used excessively because i throw newspapers 5X a week. Is this a Motor or a regulator?
Sounds more like the switch is the immediate problem , if you get down control from the switch then the motor is good . switches do get bad contacts and refuse to go one direction or the other , price out a switch from a parts house or a dealer . emergency fix might be to try to get some WD-40 down in the switch contact area , it can clean up a dirty contact and make it work again sometimes .

Maybe, but in my honest opinion your power window switch has an open on the up side.What this means is when you hit the switch in the up position,it's like your not pushing it.I would check all your wires that you can locate in the door for cuts or burns in the insulation.If none are found,I would replace the window switch first. Also it is cheaper to try that first than to buy the motor and still have the problem.And in this case it sounds like the switch.My name is Tommy and i hope i have been helpful.Have a good day.
