first check the fuse.if its good then check the window motor by pressing the button and if you dont hear the motor going theres your problem, needs to be replaced. unfortunatly the motor isnt sold by itself you got to buy the window regulator. here is a pic. of the part

Check the fuse panel first, after that check your fuse relays under the hood, if not then it might be a wiring problem.

sorry, ID10T error, posted a clarification not solution ( pictures didn't show )
Might want to check the power window motor. If you need directions on removing the door panel, Muth Co ( signal mirror manufacture ) has PDF download for the install directions that show how to get the door panel off ( if you are unsure of this ).
2001 SuperCrew directions :
Once you have the door panel off, check the motor itself, by unplugging the pig tail to the motor, and applying + and ground to the 2 pin connector. One direction will raise the window, the other will lower the motor. This is what the motor looks like out of the door, and that is the pig tail you are testing at ( this is what plugs into the factory harness )
If applying 12v directly to the motor does not raise it, you need to replace the motor.
Dealer and Napa have the motor. If you have to replace the motor, you need to use a 1" hole saw to drill the door panel to get to the motor mounts You will see dimples on the door panel, this is the location to drill :
Remove the 3 bolts ( they are more like sheet metal screws with hex heads on them), and reach up in the door opening to grasp the motor and turn anti-clock wise to remove the gear.
You can try hitting the motor against your tire, and test again. Dad's '01 Screw did the same thing, but the hitting the motor only worked for ~ 60 days.
If the testing above ( power to the motor direct ) does work, then the problem is with one of the 2 switches. Depending on use, this is usually the main driver's switch. It is ~ 65.00 to replace.

hi, the problem is not the door switch, had the same problem . bought a new switch but didn't solve the problem. I decide to open the door panels and hit window motor gently and wallah ,it worked.
