I have a 03 Mitsubishi Galant. Just yesterday was driving, everything was perfect and then rolled down my window... noticed it wouldnt roll up. Tried rolling up several times clicking the button up and down and trying to pull the window up by hand didnt work. Finally decided to restart car. Car battery failed. THIS WAS AT A CHICK FIL A DRIVE THRU WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO ORDER AND I ALMOST HELD UP THE LINE. It thankfully started again. Got myself to a parking lot where eventually had AAA had to jump my car, drove to a good year where they told me my window regulator was broken and needed replacement but it was 700! SOOO im looking to go to the mitsubishi dealer tomorrow and get it fixed. Never had problems till yesterday
