Check the Switch it self, it may be bad or dirty. You can try the button on the up position and wiggling the switch or better yet switch the switch with the passenger side. Just to see if the windows go up. If the window went up then the switch is bad and replace the switch. Believe the Salvage yard is like $15.00 there, not sure how much for switch at Auto Zone.
As for cleaning the switch, go to Radio Shack ( The Source in Canada) and buy electrical board cleaner and spray the switch after removing it from the body trim. 
If it's not the switch, then it may be the power window regulator it self and that's going to be lots of time and lots of band aides. 
Good luck and hope this helps. Check by the door hinged where the wire harness goes from the body to the door, it's inside the rubber tube like boot. Give that a tug or tow while trying the switch just to make sure the harness does not have a broken wire. Keep me posted.

Check the fuse for the cigarette lighter, replace with same value. Fuse box is either in the glove box, under the driver side dash or left side dash with driver door open.

It is possible the regulator or motor in the window is bad. This is somewhat common on the Saturn power windows as the plastic gears strip out. Most likely the switch is good but you can check by taking the switch out of the center console and checking for continuity.

To examine the regulator and motor you need to remove the outer door panel, which is relatively easy if you have torx bits.

2000 saturn power windows,driver window does not


you would first have to make sure it is switch.Motors and regulators go out often. Does the drivers door switch operate passenger side ok? Can you hear any noise when switch is is up or down position?You would want to make sure all of this first. Door panel controls are easy to replace but you really want to remove panel and make sure you have good motor and window regulator.

Window on drivers side of a 1994 saturn four door manual does not work . the window is not electric


Could be stripped gears and a bad regulator.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to everything

if you have power windows it is possible that the motor on it has gone out. Listen for the whining that the other windows make when you roll them down and if you don't hear it then you found the problem. If you are using the old crank style then it could be that the window has gone off track (not likely) or that the internals of it have worn down. Hope this helps you out and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.
