why won't my driver side window go up?

Asked by Jan 15, 2017 at 10:27 PM about the 2002 Saturn L-Series 4 Dr L200 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Saturn L200 my driver side window goes down when I push
the button down. I lift the button it won't come back up. I had to take the
inside panel out and push the window up while pulling the window switch up
with my finger. I didn't hear the window motor make any sound. when I
pushed the button down to let the window back down I heard the motor
click, but not up! Should I get a new window motor and regulator as a
precaution and replace both?

You need to check the switch, if switch is bad, replacing window motor and regulator will not help. It's most likely the switch or the motor

ok but the switch works to let the window down and the motor clicks but no sound or window movement when I pull the switch up. You still think it's the switch?


The switch has 2 separate sets of contacts, up/dn
