Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
The driver side rear window went down and won't go up i hear the motor run. the wire cable system is not working correctly
If you handy, you most likely can repair this yourself. I have had this happen on two of my Auroras. The window regulators have a nylon part that retains the cable assembly. This part gets brittle as the car ages (really under designed) and the cable end pulls through it.
I have been able to modify the retainer by removing the nylon cover and slicing a little notch to hold the end of the cable. Need a picture here to really show how it's done. In any case, a couple of hour labor and it's fixed for free.

It sounds like you need to replace the regulator (the wire/cable system) it is a common problem.
if your a 'handyman' checkout:
if not your off to the local glass shop or dealership
