144000 mi Window stuck rolled all the way down. Took to mechanic. The mechanic reported that the switch came unplugged and that he zip tied it together to prevent it from recurring. Ambient air temperature sensor overhead readout stuck at a negative temperature most of the time, so the AC does not work correctly. This mechanic does not deal with this problem. Van has been dead when tried to start after not driving for a couple of days and also died after fan left blowing for five minutes with ignition turned forward and engine off. Battery and alternator passed all testing. Switch for driver's window plugged in and zip tied.
