Windows wouldn't go up or down without pressing switch hard in different directions...replaced switch..works great!
This car has so many problems the window is just the icing. The brake light doesn't go away and no one seems to know what is the problem. The window doesn't want to go up. The car makes a humming noise when it's off. How can I fix all this without paying an arm and a leg.

Driver's side window would not roll up. Power window switch had to be replaced. I got one off ebay for under $50, and my husband replaced it himself. No further problems since.
