Question about Cars & Trucks
This would indicate a bad relay under the hood. Usually all relays are in a black box under the hood. When you push the window up or down button it energizes a relay which starts the motor moving in the direction chosen. Inside the door there are little switches on top and bottom which tell the relay to shut off the window is closed. The relay box has a diagram inside (normally) which shows what relay energizes what. You should check the fuse for windows for it may be the relay itself is fused.

It is most likely the switch itself. since the down works that means that there is power going to the switch. So, the up position switch is probably worn out.

Power windows are wired through their own relay which is usually located in the fuse box. If you don't have faulty switches in your window system I would have the relay checked out.
If you cannot operate any of the power windows and you lost power on all at the one time it is most unlikely that the motors are faulty.

try going to passenger door window switch and reset it by going down and holding for extra 3to5 seconds after window is down, do same to go up, then try doing it with master switch don forget to hold it longer, this is a reset also used on Scion vehicles, hope it helps.
