My electric window in my car is stuck in the down position (and it might rain today). Any idea where to bring it or if I can do anything myself?

I would prefer places in University or Southpark areas.

Thanks!

The only auto place we have used so far besides dealershipis is Woodies, we had them work on our 69 Vette and were happy. Not sure if they can help but here is the website address, they have quite a few locations, good luck!

Is this a Buick. We have had this happen three times on our LeSabre and once or twice on our century. I told the repairman at Griffin that I think the Buick car windows need to be recalled and fixed. We gave up two days of vacation once to come back to Griffin to get ours fixed when it was caught in the down position in Northern Virginia. My husband didn't want strangers working on his car. These things are expensive too.

Answer: Repairshop where they sell your type car.

This works in a pinch. Have someone stand outside of the car and push/pull the window up while you sit inside and while pressing the window up button, pull the window at the same time. It sounds like the motor. This has happened to me and it worked with a little effort.

Okay, this may be stupid but . . . I think there are fuses that control electric windows. Have you checked the fuses? You may just need to replace one of the fuses. If I am wrong and there are no fuses, please forgive the advice, but I think I had this problem once - and it was a simple matter of replacing a fuse.

Thanks ani. I hear the motor going so I think the power to the window is good. It may have gotten stuck or "off track" somehow.
