Welcome to Just Answer!!!


Very very common you will need to replace the drivers side door harness you have broken wires in the harness right by the door hinge where the rubber boot is that covers wires that travel from the body to the door you will need to pull back on the rubber boot and take a look at the wires you will at least have one broken wire. You will need to remove the outer door skin to remove the harness i hope this helps.

What ever wires you find broken just touch them together to get the window back up .
