My driver-side window will not roll down, it doesnt make any noise while the button is engaged so I think it is either the motor or the regulator

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

About 90K, its an automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Pontiac?

2009 G8 GT V8 6.0L

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GT yourself? What have you tried so far?
