Can't roll rear passenger window down

This happened three weeks ago but I noticed the child safety lock on the door was kinda on, I turned it off then the window rolled down and up no problems but today the lock is off and the window won't roll down at all using the front window control switch or the switch on the door itself KEIF!!! where are you! lol but seriously any ideas? window regulator or maybe something loose in the door panel? people were slamming the life out of my doors at my mothers funeral 3 weeks ago, that's when I first noticed it

Is it trying to move still? If you hear it faintly attempt to do something, or spin and spin and spin, then likely the window regulator. Maybe try reinitializing the window (push switch down for a long time, then hold up for a long time, it will attempt to go down and back up on its own), as long as you are ready to replace the window regulator if it gets stuck in some weird position.

Very sorry to hear about your mother; my condolences.

I tried what you suggested and the window started working good again! Thanks a ton Keif, I didn't think it was the regulator because I never roll that window up or down. I appreciate the condolences, loosing my mother is by the far the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with in my life
