    grab ahold of it and help it help while pushing the button, you may even need somebody else to hold the button while you sandwhich it between both hands to force it. otherwise you'll have to take the door apart and se if it the motor or cable.

    Try pushing the button while pounding the inside door panel with the side of your fist. Like mentioned above, it's either the motor or harness, and sometimes pounding on the door knocks the motor out of its flatspot.

    Good luck,

    yep its worth a try, pound it with the palm of your hand while trying to roll it up...also try rolling it from the drivers side, maybe its a switch...only other thing I can think of would be take the door panel apart and then you should be able to grab the bottom and pick it up. once you get it back up you can wedge something in there to hold it. I had to do this once, I held it up with a chunk of styrofoam insulation. changing out the motor and track isn't all that hard...it just takes time and patience. good luck.
