What causes the power window to stop working?
Window malfunctions are typically caused by a faulty window regulator (also called a window track), or a broken motor, cable pulley or window switch. Power window issues can be intermittent or permanent. Intermittent problems can cause windows to stop working temporarily only to work again and have more problems later.
How do you raise a power window that won’t work?
Hold the window shutter from the top and bottom and then take out the props supporting them. Tighten back the nuts that hold the window back to the regulator ledge. Ensure that you fasten the screws well. Then, place your hands beneath and above the window and pull it up as high as you can.
Does each power window have its own fuse?
Check the fuse Other cars have individual fuses for each window motor so failure will only affect the one window. In some cars the fuse is in the main fusebox but many makers use in-line fuses so check with your manual to find where the fuse is and replace it if blown. Then test the window.
How do I know if my power window motor is bad?

What should I do if my power window is not working?

Why is my driver’s door window not opening?
Or, the switch itself might be bad. If the driver’s door switch won’t open the right rear door, but the switch in the door will, look for either a bad switch in the driver’s door or a fault in the intervening wiring. Carefully backprobe the window switches to isolate any electrical faults in the switches, connectors or wiring.
What happens if the fuse is blown on a power window?
If the fuse is blown, pushing a window button will do nothing at all: The motor won’t groan and the glass won’t quiver. If the fuse is good and you can hear the motor, or the glass acts like it wants to move, then you’ve got some sort of mechanical problem.
