Question about Cars & Trucks
380 Mitsubishi's have a electric window regulator problem
front and back regulators are notorious for breaking and failing.
some times the cables also come off or the plastic components attached to the cables break
the motor turns a plastic wheel that winds the cables back and forward and this wheel jams or the cables come off the guides.
anyway the short answer is to change the whole regulator with a secondhand or a new one depending on your budget
i hope this helps

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.

the drivers door switch is most likely bad, they get used the most and wear out first, the connector on the back of switch may have come loose and not making good electrical contact, remove switch and check connector and if still not working need new switch, the windows are all on same circuit and either all work or none work so not fuse. extremely rare is a short in wired but not likely.

Electric window motor seized. Those motors have internal copper brushes that usually lock after time. Some times a quik test is to get to the motor and tap it with a wrench while pressing the switch to get it unseized. ( Not a fix ! ... still needs replaced ).
