I am about positive that the lift motor is broken because all the other windows work fine and the wire connection is good (I can hear it). Before I get the part to fix the problem is there a way to manually get the window to close.

Start small. Check the fuses. If all good, push your window button. If you don't hear anything, it's either a bad switch, window motor, broken wire, or loose connection. If you hear the window motor while pushing button, yet the window won't go up or down, then it either came off track or the window motor gears stripped out
Possible motor. Have you tried pushing on the window while operating the switch? Does the switch feel normal as you operate it? Possible broken wiring in door harness where wiring exits the door and enters the vehicle. You will have to cut protective boot to inspect wiring. Failure rates on rear window motors are low.
Try pulling back the wire harness cover between the left rear door and the door frame, usually a wire within is cracked or totally broken. It happened on my 2007 aspen. First it was intermittent than no power at all but this did the trick. good luck. tjm
my passenger window would only go up. Found broken white wire in the harness on the Driver side .I slit the rubber boot carefully to expose all the wires, It stuck out like a sore thumb.The broken white wire was bigger than most of the other wires going thru the harness. Spliced back together now it all works fine
This procedure may help. At least, you will know if the motor is good or not. Set a spare battery by the door and use jumper wires to connect to the motor. Pull the motor connector off, and connect the jumper wires-doesn't matter which side of connector- Does motor sound or operate? If nothing, then reverse the jumper leads, and see if motor operates in the opposite direction? If window motor is good. leave windowt up, and look for broken wires to the switch in both door openings, where breaks usually occur. If motor has nothing with jumper wires tried both ways, then you know the motor is out. There should be a way to manually get the window up, but I don't know. To remove regulator I believe in most cases, the glass is removed first, then access regulator fasteners to remove regulator and motor. Good luck.
It sounds like the Power Window Motor is bad, if it was a wiring issue it would either work or not work, it wouldn't matter what position (up or down) the window was moving in. Replace the motor and it should work fine.
Two problems are simular but not related. The power window the door panel can be removed, theres screws behind the door opener handle. and on the bottm edge of the panel , under plugs in the ends on the door closer armrest handle. once their all removed the panel needs to be lifted up and off its hooks theres wires connected to the switches in the panel and they can be picked unlocked and unplugged, Once the wires are off the motor is in plain veiw and it can be unbolted with 3 10MM headed screws with it off reconnect the switch and turn on the car and work the window with the swich if the gear turns good and you can't hold it back the window regulater has come off the window or it's broken the gear drive in the motor has a clutch and it can fail too. Removing the screw that holds the gear into the motor the gear can be lifted out. the clutch has three plastic roolers and they can break and or change to mush. They can be bought at an auto parts store. A new motor sometimes doesn't come with the clutch and the gear as your suposed to move them to the new motor. So if you end up needing a new gear make sure the new motor has all the parts that you need.
joe2 mercs is right, and that is the $ fix/proper fix, but first If window motor is doing nothing, stuck, ...try this....
NO COST and fast PROCEDURE TO try to FIX IT:
1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window 2. Ignition key is on 3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it) 4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !! 5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4. 6. Watch window operate as it should.
7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!
