Re: Driver side window will not operate
Likely the regulator is cable drive and has had some plastic peice break and not the cable is all wrapped up on the motor and such. If you unbolt the regulator (mechimism that rolls the window up and down) you can get the glass down to where you can unbolt it. then raise the glass up and tape it in place. Now you either can replace the regulator yourself or take it an auto glass shop and have them do so.

You most likely need a new window motor. you can check on the price of them at your local auto parts store, but usually the hardest part of changing it is getting the inner door panel off and back on in one piece. Usually the drivers door window motor fails first, as it is used the most.
Not likely. You have a defective window regulator. To fix remove the door panel. Peel down the warer barier. Remove the window motor and check it. If the plastic plugs are defective replace. To remove the window regulator you will need a 1/4 inch punch to punch out the rivits and 1/4 inch drill to drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and lock nuts.
If you cannot operate the window from either switch, I'd first test switch continuity and operation, both front and rear. If they both pass muster , I'd have to say the fault lies behind the door trim, probably the motor, which also be tested once reaching that point..
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
