I rolled my drivers side window halfway down, and when i went to put it back up, it won't go up. Hubby ended up rolling it all the way down while looking at the issue, and it still won't go back up! Any ideas on why it still goes down, but not back up?

Re: Front(Driver) Window problem 2002 Olds. Alero
If a power window, then it sounds like the window regulator has failed, or on either a power or manual window- the regulator attachments have broke. The window would need to come out and inspect for the failure. ?If just the window attachments, they can be purchased and re-glued onto the glass. If the regulator has failed, the entire assembly needs to be replaced.

IF WINDOW MOTOR WORKS FROM SWITCH.THE WINDOW REGULATOR IS CAUSING WINDOW TO BIND.CHECK REGULATOR FOR BINDING BY DISCONNECTING GLASS FROM IT.MOVE WINDOW UP AND DOWN BY HAND.IT SHOULD MOVE FREELY AND SMOOTHLY.IF NOT REPLACE DAMAGE REGULATOR REPLACE.LUBRICATE NEW PARTS.
You will need to remove your interior trim panel and check your window regulator for damage and for power going to your window motor. If your regulator is ok and you have power going to the motor then you have a bad window motor. If there is no power at the motor then you will need to check the circuit for the problem ie. blown fuses, broken wiring, bad switch. It is very commen for the motors to go bad. Good luck.
Their is a separate motor for each window. The least expensive fix is to replace the entire track assembly and motor. This is not a big job if you have done it before but it could be if you are not mechanical.
if the fuse is blown none of the windows will work,it sound wierd but all the power to the window motors runs through the drivers side switch. the drivers side switch may be your culprit.to be sure check to see if you have power goin in to the other switches before you replace the drivers side switch.
