Driver window not working

Asked by Alexismurphy673 May 29, 2020 at 07:51 PM about the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So, all my windows work fine, they go up and
down as they should with all buttons including
the driver panel, the drivers window is the only
thing that will not work. We tried a new button,
that didn’t work. One day I accidentally
pressed the driver window button and it went
down with power and stopped when it was all
the way down then would not budge again.
We couldn’t pull the window up or anything.
Then we pulled the wiring harness off from in
between the door and plugged it back in and
the window went back up and never budged
again. Please help it’s quite annoying lol

The driver's door gets a lot more work than the others, and that mean the wires going to the body flex a lot and that can cause breakage. As moving the harness caused the system to work temporarily, you likely just have a broken wire there.
