Start looking at every electrical connection in the area you mentioned for damaged or corroded wires, you will see it.

Check all of your fuses, sometimes a short will trip a fuse that controls the spark to the engine, and it will shut off an not start all of the sudden. Im not sure what one, but check them all and replace them if they are blown. Other than that it could be the ignition coil or a bad distributor?

Pop the door panel and look for one of the rods from the inside door pull that is disconnected from the latch. The little plastic rod holder 'gizmatchi' is probably broken - dealer or junk yard part.

Violethaze, (someone used all of the purple haze?) You're real close. If the window operates from the main switch at the drivers seat then you probably have dirty contacts on the pass. switch.
If this is the case then take the panel off again, remove the switch from the panel and carefully remove the top from the electrical portion. Don't lose the spring! Remember - they put it together so it will come apart using the special tool #002 (Pocket screw driver). These are non-serviceable parts but I've cleaned lots of them. After you get the switch apart, you'll see the brass teeter-totter (TT) pieces with the contacts attached to them. Clean the TT contacts with an emery board and scratch the corrosion from the other contacts with your special tool. Lube it, snap it back together, plug it back into the wiring and test it before the final re-assembly.
Hope this helps
