It worked in the morning then nothing when I tried to put it down in the afternoon. The passenger window works fine even using the drivers side control. Any help would be appreciated. It is a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan.

It appears to me that the door hinge bushings have worn out , do not force the inner or outer door handles. Lower the window and use the top part of the window frame to left up on the door to release the weight on the door latch and try to open it. If this allows the door to open your hinge bushing are worn out and allowing the door to sag putting it's weight on the door latch. This is common on drivers doors because of being the most used.
The master switch is the one located on the drivers side. If this switch has a malfunction it can rob power from the passenger side causing the problem you have. If the regulator/motor are in working order and you know the passenger switch is ok then that could be the problem. Another couple of possible problems could be a broken wire in the harness traveling from the car to the door (inside the rubber protective boot or a weak window motor (1990 is pretty old for a motor of that type.
It sounds like everything else and the wiring is okay, only that button on the driver's switch is not working. I would try a new switch, if you see nothing wrong with the electrical plug for it when you take it off. If that down wire was broken somewhere from the driver switch to the passenger door, I don't think the driver's switch would work for it either way, up or down. And same, neither would the passenger switch work. I think the button for down is not making contact somehow, and right in the switch.
try going to passenger door window switch and reset it by going down and holding for extra 3to5 seconds after window is down, do same to go up, then try doing it with master switch don forget to hold it longer, this is a reset also used on Scion vehicles, hope it helps.
that's impossible. you are making this up. seriously, it is probably the master switch on the driver's door. you may be able to get an aftermarket through auto zone, but if not, i'm sure the dealer will be glad to way overcharge you for one. real easy to put in, pry it out, unplug it, plug in the new one, snap it in. it would be nice if you had a test lite and could check the switch, but they are fairly cheap and would not cost as much as a trip to the dealer
That sounds like the switch is failing to me. Many times these switches get wet and or dirty which causes them to fail to make a proper contact. I have sprayed many of these switches with electrical contact cleaner and seen them work like new. I would try that first before replacing the switch.
the main switch that controls all the windows is on the drivers side it will allows the drivers window to work then allow your brain into thinking that its fine no its not always fine change it your problems will go away. its the master/main switch that is why the two back windows does not work, they does not always go bad at the same time.
I would be very suspicious of the drivers master swich. If the window works fine on the other side it's an easy assumption that the window motor and regulator are operative. The switches are usually fairly inexpensive (less then 100.00 ) and easy to install
