window goes down a little and stops. may not go up. doesn't work at all sometimes. may get "stuck" in the down position.
2002 GMC Sonoma 175,000 mi,
From the time I bought this truck new. The window has a mind of its own. It works when it wants to. Now it will not go back up and is stuck down and I am looking for corrective action.
