Most common problem is a broken regulator. If you press the button to open or close you should hear the motor click. If nothing is heard then your switch could be bad, wiring could be bad, motor could be seized.

If the inspection reveals obvious concerns that can be readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester, 007-00500 or equivalent, to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the driver door module, go to Pinpoint Test A . If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for lighting control module, go to Pinpoint Test B . If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the driver door module and lighting control module, retrieve continuous DTCs and execute self test diagnostics for the driver door module and lighting control module to retrieve current DTCs.
If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to Symptom Chart to continue diagnosis.
If DTCs are retrieved for the driver door module, go to the Driver Door Module (DDM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnosis. If DTCs are retrieved for the lighting control module, go to the Lighting Control Module (LCM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
If the driver door module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test A . If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS, go to Pinpoint Test B .
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
You'll need more then wiring diagrams ! A good scan tool for starters .
Driver side door when you open it beetween the door and the car there wire in the middle all the wire for the window and door look goes truh there check you probably got broken wire in there you open and close that door 1000s time everytime you open and close those wire move and break just open that and repair the broken wire
Well there are only two things that can cause this one is the regulator gears are stripped thats the gear that the motor turns to lift and lower window. Or at the bottom of the glass window when you remove the door panel there is a little plastic tab that goes thru a drilled hole in the glass that may be broken to it common for the plastic to become brittle and break.
The most common problem with Cabrio auto windows is the Window regulator. Each window has it's own. My wife also owns a 2002 Cabrio, that had a mis-behaving window driver window and the passenger was locked in the up position. After inspecting the drivers window, I found one of the cable roller guides was broken, causing the cable to snag when using the window open / close, and resulting in the window seeming to have a mind of it's own. I had a local garage order the regulator for me, and then I disassembled the drivers door and installed the new regulator (problem is now solved). The passenger window was bound up, I also had to remove the regulator and let loose the tension in the cable system by carefully removing the cover over the cable roller. This window works fine now as well.
Have you verified that there is power at the rocker switch. They are very common to break. Does your headlight and panel dimmer switch work. The reason being is your power for the window controlls goes directly through your dimmer switch. If the problem is only isolated to the driver side, i would suspect a bad regulator motor or a bad rocker switch.
assuming the fuse and relay are good. its rare the motor go bad, more likely it will be the main driver window switch is faulty. before you tear into the door assuming is the regulator or the motor which is a pain in the rear to work on I would go ahead and replace the main switch first and its easy and cheap. look on ebay or junk yard for parts. if its not the switch than the regulator wires is broken of have mangle up like a bird nest locking the motor up.
Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.
