Driver side window on my 2010 Dodge Avenger R/T will roll down but won't roll up

A couple of possibilities: One is a bad switch. The other is that the window regulator has broken. The window regulator is the motorized unit that raises and lowers the power windows in your car. It consists of an electric motor that uses a loop of cable to pull the window up and down the window tracks. These wear out and often the cable loop will break or jamb. Once this happens it will only move the window with the motor's power one way. Up can only pull something with a cable, pushing it doesn't work so it needs the complete loop to do both. Replacing these is common and involves removing the door's interior panel and unbolting the window regulator from the window and the door frame and replacing it was a new one. These units usually can not be fixed and must be replaced. here is one I replaced last year in my GM truck. The old is laid out here in the same position it is in in the door and the new is below it still in the packaging. Tip: If you tackle this yourself make sure you tape the window in position BEFORE unbolting the regulator. If you don't you risk dropping the window into the door and breaking it!

Window stuck

Power Window: If it's a power window check to see if there is power coming from the window switch with a test light or multimeter. If power is coming from the switch, look in the door where it pivots and check to see if any wires are cracked or broken. If there is no borken wires, then it's possible that the power window motor is not working. If you hear the power window motor working or operating it's possible the window regulator is broken or binded up
Manual Window: If it's a manual window, take the door panel off and check the regulator (part where the window is attached) and looked for any signs that the cable in the part has come free or binded up. Try to roll window up and down to find any signs of the broken cable. If that is the case, then you need a window regulator.

I have a 2001 lincoln town car. The driver window went down, but won't go back up. Was told I needed a new door module. Just purchashed a new door module for it and the driver window still won't go up....

Can you hear the window motor work? If positive, then you have a mechanical problem. Possibly the cable lifter is not installed properly. If motor is dead check fuse box.

Window wont go up or down

The same happen to me, the cable that pull the window up and down is broken. I could not find the cable and had to replace the whole unit. You can do this by removing the inside door panel, and from there you should be able to work on the unit.
