the switches need cleaning ,they have contacts in them that get dirty you can spray contact cleaner on them or use emery paper to file them, they are not to hard to pull apart

Due to following issues driver side window will not go down or up while pushing window button.
First of all check battery voltage at window switch. If there is no voltage at that switch, then check for any broken wire between door and body. It may also be due to bad window motor or bad window switch (see if window can be operated by driver switch or individual switch). There may also be bad window switch connector (pin connectors broken). Please also check for lockout switch if it is bad.
Please replace any part which is bad and it will resolve the issue you are facing with.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Have you checked the window regulator. (electric window motor). I seems a comon problem for the plastic to break at the bottom where the wire which pulls the glass up and down. The motor will still sound (clunk) if you use the window switch but will not lift the window.
Remove the trim off the door.
Undo the bolts holding the glass into the plastic at the bottom of the window and carefully remove the glass.
Unbolt and remove the sliding piece that holds the glass.
You should find the broken plastic at the bottom.
Replace and reinstall. Aftermarket parts are available at a fraction of the cost of buying new nissan parts. Second hand parts are available but costly.

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 ).
