Sounds like it is Off Track. You will need to remove the Door Panel. There are Access holes in the Door so that you can get it Back on Track.

More than Likely Stripped out. This is a Dealer only Repair. You could get the Parts from the Parts Counter at the Dealership and repair this yourself But, It is not Easy!

This could be an issue with corrosion of the relay between the switch and the motor (little black box).
Sometimes the glue that holds the motor's "piston" to the window will stop working, and the "piston" will slip off the window, causing the window to stick in the down position as well. As long as your doors are apart, you might want to check that too.
For the windows to work, you may need to find a new relay, or possibly a new motor. They can burn out or have other problems in excessive heat/use/age. The GOOD news is that pretty much every salvage yard will have 4 or 5 1987-1991 Oldsmobiles sitting around, so you can steal the parts for next to nothing. Also, Buick LeSabres (also 1987-1991) are almost identical to the 88's, so you can use those for parts too!
Best of luck!

Typically when the window no longer operates, the motor for that power window is shot. The fix is to replace the motor. I prefer to get the motor and track assembly. It is much easier to install. J.

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.
