Driverside window use to sometimes go up after i hold the button down for about 3 minutes but now the window won't go up at all. when i press the down button even though the window is all the way down it seems like there is nothing wrong with the window motor because i hear it.

Try calibrating first,window up & hold switch for 3-4 seconds window down hold 3-4 seconds then back up & hold 3-4 seconds,check for the auto down to work if not then most likely the master switch is needed.
If it is an electric window, the fault may be in the relay. I have an old vehicle with electric windows and have discovered the reason why sometimes one window won't close is the relay is worn. I hold the close button down whilst knocking my knee hard against the door skin. The vibration is just enough to get the relay to make contact and the window winds up all the way. I must replace that relay - it is getting harder to make it go up....
The window motor probably quit working. Try banging on the inside of the door near the bottom, at the same time holding the switch to raise the window. Sometimes this will give the motor one more chance at raising the window.
there is a module that drives the regulator power window assembly.
the module(express widow module) is probably at fault.
if the module does not register that the window is all the way down,it will not allow the window to go up.
Hi. Sounds like the "anti-pinch" mechanism is coming into action on the drivers side. If the window encounters any resistance when closing it will stop. Check the window seal for damage and correct fitment, make sure there is nothing obstructing the glass. If you are OK with the seal and channels at either side and the window is going up an down "square", try some lubricant in the channels either side with the window in the down position and operate a few times.
Passenger side. The motor for the window must have been disconnected from battery voltage at some time and it has lost its reference points. That is, where to start and stop. Nudge the window near to the top, but not closed, then close the window holding the switch down for at least 5 seconds. Then open the window and hold the switch down as before. You may have to do this more than once.
There should be a section in your owners manual covering this procedure.
I don't think the two problems are connected physically.
With the ignition key in position II and the window in the fully up position press and hold the down side of the window button until the window reaches it's end stop and continue to hold the button down for at least 5 seconds. Next, repeat the above procedure only now going up but remember to hold the switch for at least 5 seconds after the window reaches it's stop. You do not need VIDA for this repair although VIDA can do the same thing only via the computers.
