Possible switch problem, and or wiring at door hinge area. All that switch does as far as power to your window goes, is provide it one way for up, and reverses polarity for down. the reason I say wiring, is quite often the harness where the door hinges, gets bent back & forth so much with opening & closing the drivers door especially, that it will sometimes wear through & cause problems.

I had this exact problem with my Park Avenue and it was the switch in the drivers door. I bought a switch at a junkyard for $5.00.

there may be a couple of screws that hold the door handle assembly to the door if so remove them so you can lift it up, if not it may be that you have to push back on the inside door handle assembly to remove the top of the are where the switches are located. You will have to get this loose and lifted to access the switch.

Drivers side window will not roll up


Each window has it's own little motor which pushes the window up and down in a track. you will have to have that motor replaced, but I recommend that you replace the entire power window assembly which means that you will get a new motor and a new track. This is a 30 minute job and should cost about 200 dollars

How to remove a driver side window switch


no. the drivers switch is the MASTER switch and not like the others. if the window goes up but not down, most likely the switch. get inside the car and open the door, as you are holing the window switch down, slam the door shut a few times, sometimes this will "jar" the window motor loose if it is stuck. if it works ok now, the window motor is jamming and will need replacement. another trick is to carefully watch the dome light as you are working the switch, if you push the switch down, and the dome light dims "slightly", the switch is good and the motor is stuck.
