If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.
generally the door panel has to come off. With the panel removed you can see the tracks. There is an adjustment for each track, and you can observe the action of the window in the track as you operate the window. slacken both track adjustment bolts if fitted, operate the window untill fully up, tighten each adj bolt and operate the window through the cycle. Make any further adjustments as needed. When correct install the door panel, and recheck the operation of the window.
Electric window circuits are complicated, so you MUST leave all switches connected for the system to function.
Now each switch does two jobs.
It switches power to one side of the motor and ground to the other. To make the motor rotate in the other direction, we simply reverse the power and ground connections. But if you disconnect one of the switches, especially the main bank for the driver, you will lose supply and ground continuity so leave all switched connected.
Have you checked the fuses or circuit breakers.?
Some vehicles have a fuse or breaker for each window.
Have you checked the child protection switch..?
This switch turns the rear windows off to prevent a child from opening the window and maybe falling out of a moving vehicle. If this switch is in the off position, the rear windows will not operate
In some vehicles, this switch will prevent the rear switches from working but the driver can still operate the windows, in some vehicles, this switch will prevent the rear windows from operating at all.
Trying to describe the operation of the circuit and how to test it would be fruitless through here so my advice would be to seek qualified help if the child switch is not the problem.
Each switch in the system switches two circuits and as such must operate correctly or you may find that fuses begin to fail as you switch each window circuit.
I am guessing you have power windows. Happens to mine sometimes. Slam the door a couple to few times, see if that doesn't put the window back on "track". I mentioned this to the dealership a while back and they were going to charge about $90 to pop off the interior part of the door and put it back on track. They said it "builds up dirt". I actually also toggle the window switch a few times to see if it will move slightly and then do my door slam thing a couple to few times. I seem to get this problem when it rains. I hope it helps.
the window wouldnt do that as a sign of defect. most likely the motor went out. but also maybe the clips on the windows bottom broke causing it to fall. the only way to know for sure would be to open it up it could come down to being something as simple as a switch
