2008 Jetta SEL here.

Came back to the car in the morning as it was snowing. Luckily it had just started snowing.

First thing I tried to do was close the window, except it wouldn't go up! Kept hitting the button and nothing would happen. Made sure the window lock wasn't on. Tried the other windows and they went down, but then they stopped working as well.

It doesn't seem like a motor problem but more like a window switch problem. Maybe water seeped into the switches?

Any ideas on what I should do before taking it in?
