could be electrical...but probably mechanical. how old is your car? I have taken apart most of my power windows. The sliding mechanism can jam pretty easily; dont try to force the window closed or open. Try taking the door panel off to see if theres a problem with the track.

Question

hey the cars a 1995. i have removed the door panel and the runners look fine, the window is free to move. i have swopped the right window switch for the left one still no luck. is there any other tests i can do so that i know what the problem is? i have also got another problem with the heating on the car when the cars at normal operating temp, i put the heaters on full and hot air comes onto window screen and feet but when i switch it to blow on your face its cold. thanks very much for the help
