Drivers side window won't roll up. You can use the window crank with someone pulling on the window and get the window up, the window will roll down with the crank, just not up, can it be fixed

It sounds like the regulator may be bad.

Remove the battery cables, clean them and retighten them. Also, check to make sure the ground from the battery to the engine is clean and tight.

Thank you, no one suggested that, they suggested buy altanator, but it doesn't make sense to me, I have never had any trouble, the car always started right up, lights never dimmed, it does sound like battery down, it clicked on the old battery and it is clicking on the new battery like poor connection, also would the starter selinoid or starter do anything like that?I am 70 yr old lady but not senile lol
