In the simplest form a window regulator is one with a handle which you can use to roll up or down the windows. However, almost all vehicles manufactured in the past 20 years come with power windows that use electronic regulators. Power windows are operated in either direction by pressing a button. So, the regulators in these power windows are located within the panels of your car door. The window regulator runs on electricity. Many windows use a special regulator which also prevents the windows from being forced down as a security measure.
When something goes wrong with your window regulator, the window will fail to go up or down. At times, it may just move slightly in either direction. The best thing to do is to take the car to a certified mechanic. There could be a myriad of reasons for the windows not functioning appropriately and so only a certified technician would be able to single out if it’s the window regulator or some other component.
