It sounds like the mechanism which makes the window move when the window motor gears turn is broke. This part is called a Window Regulator. It is plastic and looks like a big belt with teeth.

Any glass shop can replace one in an hour or so. It is a common repair for many brands of vehicles. You can price the repair by calling your local shops for the best deal. Many have waiting areas like a tire store or Dealer.

The part can cost $35 to $65 dollars and labor of about an hour. There are sometimes hidden clips or screws in the door panels which complicate removal of the door panels. Plus some of the Electric controls are in the door panel for seats, locks, mirrors, etc. If not reassembled correctly you could have Rattles and water leaks and pinched Electric wires. It will take a novice several hours to do.

If affordable let a Pro do this for you.

Drivers side window wont roll up or down


If you can hear the motor when you try to operate the window then it'll be a problem with your window regulator (the mechanism that moves the window up an down), if you can't hear the motor then It's more likely to be a fault with the motor as you said it wouldn't work with the central locking. This means your car has a total closure system, ie you press a button and all windows and sunroof close. These systems are usually seperate wiring from the switched circuit used to operate the windows from inside the car, so, if the windows don't work on either circuit then the one thing they do have in common is the motor.

Sounds like the window regulator broke (the mechanism that moves your window up and down). It has cable to do the lifting the window up and pulling the window down. These cables do break.

My back window wont roll up at all


if there is a pause from when the motor starts to when the window moves it is a worn or faulty window regulator, the motor not starting when you press the up on the switch could be a bad switch, if you have a meter check for voltage at the switch when you press up.

it must have fallen off its track. you would have to pull the door panel off (usually two-three screws/bolts and about twelve little plastic tabs that break really easy so be gentle.) and carefully place the window back up on its track. be sure its not too far back or too far forward when you tighten it into place or it wont slide properly. be sure not to have you fingers in the way when you test it to be sure it tracks properly before closing everything back up. also be sure not to over tighten the holding brackets (especially in the cold) or you could crack the window.hope this helps

you have to replace the window regulator reason why is because the cable ripped which would cause the motor to work without moving the window up or down .. regulator is the cable and the rails were the motor makes the woindow move up and down on. you have to replace it.
