The motor was apparently dead from the window so it wouldn't go up or down. A guy tried to jump start it, and it still didn't work, so I needed a new window motor + regulator. The guy ordered it, and I'm going to put it on Monday
So far so good. Then all of a sudden I tried out of nowhere to put the window up and it worked! I shut off my car to see if it was a fluke, and it still worked. It was a miracle. What do I do now though? The poor guy ordered the piece.
Should I just go ahead and get the new window motor anyway if this already happened? I mean if I don't I'm saving $200
It will do it again. If you have already ordered it then change it out. If it happens again before you get it changed out, the just give the inside of the door a good hit near the speaker while holding the button in the up position.
My passenger side window did this for a while. It would work one day, and the next it wouldn't. It finally died for good within a few weeks of starting that. I would say go ahead and replace it, since IRS probably on it's way out and you don't want to be stuck with a window that wont go up if it starts raining or something.
