3 Answers

you might have a burned out fuse, no power to the unit (disconnected) or the window fell off at the bottom where the control arm can't reach it anymore meaning someone will have to disassemble the door to put it right.~


Pull the switch panel off. See if there is power to one of the wires. If no power, it could be a fuse or broken wire in the rubber conduit between the hinges. -- An electric window uses the same motor for up or down. It switches the polarity of the two wires going to the motor.
