My power window won't roll back up and is stuck in down position. You can hear the motor when you roll down, but no sound when you try to roll up. I checked the fuses but those are fine

Give the window motor a sharp whack with a hammer. Sometimes that will unstick the window motor. If this works replace the window motor soon as it will happen again.

Sorry, I left out the important word "motor". I have actually done this on an old Mercury Grand Marquis to get a stuck window motor running. This is not a repair, just something that may help get the window closed. If the gears in the motor are bad thai may not work at all. @ T_S_T...Thanks for posting about my mistake. I may not have noticed it without your post and it is appreciated.

Thanks guys and I'd never hold any one responsible for my own doings! I actually tried fixing the driver door handle when it broke, n ended up busting the clips on door panel after numerous attempts at putting it back on...that's why I weary of trying to even mess with my passenger side panel...
