The first thing that I would do is check for electricty at the motors them sel and work your way back.If there is elec. at the window motor it's self susspect a motor problem.Remove the motor to see if it spins (but it dosen't me its good it could be week)next check for binding in the window mecanism.

I would see if the haynes manual or chiltons manual has specs for the driver (main )switch so you can test ressistance. Sometimes when they go bad they can show up in one door, also verify voltage to the side rear window switch, as well as ground , the wire colors and location should be in the manual also, if everything checks out there start leaning toward the motor ,in that case you need to trace wire colors as well as schematics (manual), and bypass the switch to the motor directly this should identify yor culprit. hope this helps chris

I'm guessing you've removed the door panel since you said you removed the switch. but just in case...you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.It sounds like the motor may have died you on if you cannot hear it...it could also be the regulator or linkage has broken

You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
