Do this, With the door CLOSED !! push the 'down' button all the way and hold it for 10 secs, then up all the way and hold it for another 10 secs. Then repeat once. The window will return to normal after that.

To have it towed, you need a roll back truck.

PATS has set code for sure, but battery drain caused by draw because systems do not shut down when parked now.

Electronics need to go to sleep 90 seconds after you park the car. This is not happening. Fixing the window may resolve this draw.

My window on 2005 infiniti g35 stop working recommendations?

I have a 2004 G35 Coupe that had the same probelm.

I checked some fuses -- all appeared to be OK. Then tried locking and unlocking the driver-side car door several time, using the key and the car fob.

Presto, the window stared working again.

Caution, I believe there is an issue (at least with the coupe) about raising windows while the door is open and then closing the door.

Sounds like a track problem. It happens sporadically because the track will occasionally align itself when the window is closed, allowing you to open the window normally but will work itself away fromthe door after you open it. You probably hear a strange noise when closing the window. The track needs repair. This will require opening the door panel to secure the track or replace it altogether.

Drivers side window power went out

I had this exact problem with my Park Avenue and it was the switch in the drivers door. I bought a switch at a junkyard for $5.00.
