the power window motor is bad if you let it sit for a few minuites after it stops you can push the switch and it will start moving again

In a car of that age the most likely problem is the motor. But it can also be a rusted mechanism or a faulty connection or switch. The only way to find which is to remove the door trim and test everything.

If the motor works when you apply power and ground directly to it the problem has to lie in the wiring or switch. I know you replaced the switch already but i would start with verifying that the switch is providing power and ground to the appropriate wires to the drivers window motor. You can check it at the motor first, if you don't have power there, check it at the switch. If you have power and ground at the switch but not at the window motor look for a broken wire. If you have power and ground at the window motor connector, yet the motor still doesn't work, do a voltage drop test to determine if there is excessive resistance in a connection or wire somewhere in the circuit.
