Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
All other windows roll up and down but not the drivers door window
You will more than likely have to change out the window regulator . these are gable drive and bind up in the motor area .
to test remove door panel and use a battery charger . There is 2 wires that goto the window motor . touch negative to one side and positive to other side . It will either go up or down . reverse the cables it will go the opposite way.
If it goes up and down fine then its your window Switch.
If it doesn't its your Regulator

sounds more like the switch is the immediate problem , if you get down control from the switch then the motor is good . switches do get bad contacts and refuse to go one direction or the other , price out a switch from a parts house or a dealer . emergency fix might be to try to get some WD-40 down in the switch contact area , it can clean up a dirty contact and make it work again sometimes .

Your widow regulator is defective or the motor is defective. Remove door panel, using a punch, punch out the rivets, using a !/4 drill out the aluuminum plugs. Remove the regulator and inspect, if its not defective apply bearing grease when mechanism rolls up and down. Rivets must be replaced by 1/4 screws and nuts. Take motor apart, you will find three plastic plugs which have a tendency to disenegrate, replace these with ball bearings, pack the motor and I do mean pack it with wheel bearing grease. Reasemble.

the window is off of the track, or the arm broke. you can try to do it yourself. pull the door panel off (may be some bolts near the arm rest and handle, but the rest are clips). from there, you should be able to see if it's on the track or not, and the condition of the arm. if the arm is broken, you might want to take it in.

SOURCE: I own a 2004 Chrysler
I had the same issue. Disconnect the battery for 15-30min. This will allow the Integrated Power Module (IPM) or sometimes called the fuse panel, to reset. Many other web fixit sites reference this. Apparently, the parking light circut is controlled by a solid state breaker and not a fuse in the IPM,

Testimonial: "Hey worked like a charm, wonder why the Chrysler place didn't tell me to do that. Probably because they wanted over 1000 dollars to replace the IPM."
