Re: driver power window will not roll back up
A quick way to check if the motor or switch is the problem is to perform this test, at night operate the window switch with the door open, if the dome light dims slightly most likely the window motor is defective or the regulator is jammed, if no dim is observed then the switch is most likely the problem, very quick and easy to do.

Do you know how to do electrical troubling shooting > Do you know how to read a wiring diagram , do you own a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , do you know how to use a DVOM ? Go on you tube an check out some videos on automotive basic electrical trouble shooting , how to read a wiring diagram . Also check out video on power window trouble shooting .Then go here for a free wiring diagram . http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html We test not guess .
First check the fuses for both electric windows if they are good.The fuse box one is on the engine compartment driver side look for long retangular black box and open the fuse cover the cover should designate what the fuses and relay is for the other is on the driver side under the dashboard just above your left foot look under you should see another fuse box.If both fuses are good,then your going to have to check the window regulator which is inside each door.Open the door panel and check window regulator morethan likely the regulator assembly need to be change.You might just need the motor.The whole assembly is quite expensive.
If you can hear the motor running and the window does not move than the wire in the regulator has probably broken. The rear door panel will need to be removed to access the regulator.
Regulators are pretty common and should be in stock at just about any good parts store. I like the Dorman brand of aftermarket regulators and have also has good luck with the NAPA brand as well.
Have you tried rolling the windows up from all the different switches on the different doors? Or are you just using the master panel on the drivers side door? If the other door switches roll up their respective windows then you need to replace the faulty master switch (drivers door).
If this is not you problem then you need to look at that rubber tubing in your drivers side door jam. this is the power feed for your window switches, all of them. Often times the wire inside the tube gets cracked simply because of it's location. You can just splice a wire in should this be the problem.
You said you checked the fuses and they are good. And there is no way every motor/regulator is going bad at once. That leaves the two suggestions above for your trouble shooting.
