My drivers side window is down and it won't roll back up


Assuming power windows
Do you hear the motor running? - If not bad fuse, motor, electrical connection
If you hear the motor - Can you move the window my hand? Could be a bad window regulator (a cable and pulley that raises/lower the window - when driven by the motor).
