Window just stopped working. First it was the front drivers side controls. (I could still operate individually but not at the console on drivers side. ) Now this week clear out of the blue the sun roof will not close and today the drivers side passenger window will not go up. Says no entry on control panel and I pushed nothing or changed nothing. What is up with this? Very frustrating and of course it is going to rain here today and I have to go to work. Please help!

Driver side widow will not roll up or down using switch inside car or key from outside. I have. Looked at fuse panel and not found a culprit.

Twice in my first 2 months of owning my Jetta Sportwagen I have had the driver's side power window fail to go up. The first time I was able to push it up eventually the same day. I will try again to close the window this afternoon when I go home from work.

Power window D-side fell down. Motor runs, window won't come up. So far I got an estimate of $280.00 and decided to DIY. We'll see.
First the rear passenger window behind the driver failed. Next it was the driver window that failed and now it is the right rear passenger window. 3 down one more failure to go.
Both rear windows have failed. I was told the first one was due to a "shear pin", which was repaired under warranty. The second has just failed, and only 600 miles out of warranty. Not sure if I want another VW.

Front passenger window won't go down and same door won't lock with, or without, the remote. Hence a serious problem for auto security anywhere outside my garage.
Driver side window randomly comes down and takes a while to come back up, not time wise but you have to pull the control up multiple times before it actually starts to come up
My complete door on the rear passenger side is dead it has no power lock won't lock and the window won't roll up or down.

Drivers side window will not go up
Driver dooor window controls have a mind of their own and so does gas gap
my window won't go up or down..
Power windows in front both drivers and passenger won't go down. Started sparatically, sometimes they would work, or just the passenger side would work, now both are stuck in up position.
Power window fails on driver's side. Will not roll up or go down.
During rainy weather the automatic power windows on the rear driver side and front passenger side did not stay up. They world go up to the top but then come back down. The problem has been diagnosed by a mechanic as a faulty regulator but not yet fixed.
back right window will not operate with the drivers controls, drivers side window opens and closes on its own.
After being caught in a storm, my windows in front will not work, my driver side window is stuck down
