My rear window will not roll up
Before replacing the motor check the safety relay either on the bottom of the handle or the drivers side latch. if to test pull it out and put a jumper wire in

This has several possiblilitys, it could be the switch in the dash has gone out even if it does not work with the key in the tailgate. other possible item could be the window motor or a sensor that detects if the gate is up or down. check motor wires for power when the switch is activated by pulling off the panel on the tailgate, if it is getting power i would suggest replacing the motor. if not you may have to trace wires to the drivers side of the tail gate and find the sensor.i had to by pass mine a while ago. makes it much easier to clean the glass on the inside cause the window will roll up with the gate down.

I had the same problem with mine and I drilled out the rivets holding the motor in. Have someone hold the window up when you do this so it don't fall. after you get it drilled and you can let it down you should be able to remove the window from the track through the panel. It has been a while since i had done it but the window motor was very reasonable.... make sure you are getting power to the motor before going through all of this because you might be able to put power to it and make it roll down.

Your window fuse, relay or motor may be dying and no longer powerful enough to close your window all the way up. So as not to be repetitive, for the failure of your power driver side window and rear window, review this handy diagnostic article, which identifies the possible causes, from a bad fuse, relay to window motor, etc.:
This should help narrow down your particular cause.

Try tapping lightly on the door panel in different places,while the key is on,and holding the window switch in the up position.sometimes,that will jar the motor and the window will work.

This is a pretty common problem, Inspect the wiring in the tailgate jam area ,the wiring takes a lot of abuse ,every time the tailgate is open and closed the wiring inside the( black vinyl tube ) gets flexed back and forth and in time the wiring breaks some times if you open up the vinyl tube and inspect the wires it will appear the wires are ok but if you pull on the wire you'll find that it will actually stretch and all thats holding it together is the vinyl insulator ,also there are switches in the door latches of the rear gate that tell's if the tail gate is closed,if its not closed completely it will not allow the window to work properly hope this gets you in the right direction
