Could be either the motor or the switch/fuse. I would think if you dont hear anything coming from that general area plus it didnt go down could be the switch. On my cadillac my window went down but up crooked and it was a little plastic guide in the window but that doesnt sound like your problem.

It's likely either the switch or the one touch down relay. You can bypass the relay to test it.

how do i go about doing that?
Unplug the relay in the driver's door and jumper the yellow wire to the yellow/green wire. Then test the switch. If the window works the problem is the relay. See here for wiring diagrams and related info (it's a how-to I wrote for adding a passenger side relay).

Just a short piece of wire connecting the two terminals, for testing only. If it works and you decide you don't want to replace the relay, then you'll want to come up with something more permanent, but this will okay for testing purposes.
