Window won't go up

I rolled down the window the other day and now it won't go up. I can't tell if the switch is bad or disconnected or if it is the window motor. There isn't any sound coming from it so I don't think it is the motor. What should I try to get it working again?

Watch the dome light as you push the button, if it dims slightly, the motor may be bad, if it does not dim, the switch may be bad, keep fiddling with the switch if the light does not dim. You have to watch it very carefully.

Ford expedition drivers side window won't roll up

well windows are usually pretty simple. It could be the window switch, the regulator bound up, or the motor itself went out. try jiggling the switch, actuate the switch over and over..see if you get any movement. sometimes smacking the side panel will jolt the motor. If that doesn't work i usually take off the door panel, try supplying the motor power, if that works that tells me the switch is bad. if the motor doesnt do anything even with 12volts supplied, then that tells us the motor is bad. if you hear the motor work but its grinding and nothing happens, the regulator is bad. Let me know if you have questions, i can help you further

Mazda 6 passenger window won't go up!!!

It sounds like it could be the window solenoid, or the window motor. It's unlikely the switches on both doors are bad. Check the solenoids and motors...

My window will not roll up. How can I tell if it is the switch, motor or regulator? 1998 Volvo s70

If your switch is bad, there will be no function up or down, nor will your hear the faint click at the motor in the door.
If the motor is bad it usually rolls down, because it takes less effort, but will struggle or die out when going up.
If the regulator is bad, it'll usually affect the gear teeth on the motor, causing the window not to hold its position resulting in the window dropping down on its own.

My drivers side window will roll down but not up. is the window regulator going bad

No the window regulator is not going bad in most cases, but to make a final determination of what the cause is, answer this, does the window make any attempt to roll up? if not then the switch is defective, if it does try to move lubricate the window channel's with dry Graphite spray and see if that eases the roll up problem.

Got kids? VW electric convertible top - I found dried milk in the switch had same problem on turn on convertible opened and would not close, would have to use manaul bypass foldup. Pull window controller spray with a electrical cleaner then try it. If not dirty the switch is bad. May be in driver door switch or on rear door? Good luck.

Roll window all the way down (again), press and hold the switch down for 3-5 seconds. The window should roll up and down normally. Repeat the same steps for ALL the window switches.

My back window will not roll down All other

Not much info you gave....manual or power? I either way, if it is power, your switch may be bad in the door panel....most pop off and you can disconnect it and reconnect it to check it. Unplugging the battery for up to 5 minutes also helps in resetting relays.

If the switch works then it is very possible that the motor has gone bad. If it sounds like it wants to go down, then the motor is bad.

If manual, the nylon roller could have jack-knifed in the window glass sash. Removing the door panel will be able to let you see what is really wrong.
