Not that this will help much, it's possible that the window is off track but it sounds like the steel cable inside the window motor has unspooled or broken causing the window to roll up but not stay.

To determine either, the inside door panel will need to be removed.

If attempting a fix on your own, you may search online for video of how to remove your door panel. It's not a difficult job with the right tools and certainly a lot cheaper to do on your own.

A local junk yard should have a good window motor for $10.00 -$15.00, new ones are $40.00 and up.


For a quick fix to keep window up, take a gum wrapper(or piece if paper that size) and fold it length ways 2 or 3 times and bend into a horseshoe over top of window and roll it up in the window. The paper should help hold the window from dropping back down. You may have to fold the paper to make it thicker depending on how tight the window channel is.

You can also use some small pieces of duct tape instead of paper, that would last longer at least and won't fall out if you roll the window down.

Good Luck!!!

You can try to relearn it.

If the power window automatic function (closing only) does not operate properly, perform the following procedure to initialize the power window system. 1. Push the ignition switch to the ON position. 2. Close the door. 3. Open the window more than halfway by operating the power window switch. 4. Pull the power window switch and hold it to close the window, and then hold the switch for more than 3 seconds after the window is closed completely. 5. Release the power window switch. Operate the window by automatic function to confirm the initialization is complete. 6. Perform steps 2 through 5 above for other windows.
