I've had a similar problem with my 2003 Buick Century. In my case, the driver's side front window one day went up and would not come down. I knew that the switch was malfunctioning by sticking in the up position since the window continued up despite the fact that Iet off the switch when the window was half way up and it continued going up. I had to pull over and pull the master switch assembly from the door panel and unplug it to prevent the window motor from being damaged by the constant power feeding it after the window was up. Basically, it would have burned the motor out. I cleaned the switch and it now works fine most of the time. I still need to replace the assembly. Not sure this is the reason in your case. I would check the back window and see if it goes down with the switch on the back door panel. If it does, then you are having problem with the master switch assembly on your front door panel. Moisture from rain from the window being down during rain or dirt may have corroded the switches' contacts.

i had same problem in the drivers side boot between door and body move boot to one side and then the other to expose wires see if any are broken or frayed i actual cut the boot the long way on one side and removed it then cut tape to expose all the wires. at first when this happened to me my drivers side window was intermiten than it would not go up or down by itself until i jumped the window motor from the battery i found 2 to 3 wires broken. repair wires with wire crimp connectors or loosen wire harness from plastic tie straps to give xtra room and twist together and wrap with elect tape put boot back and wrap with eletrical tape

If your alarm went off, it could be that someone had tried to break into your car. They most likely may have cut some of the wires inside your door with what ever device they may have been using. Look for evidence between the bottom of the windows and doors where the problem is. If not, then it is possible that your automatic window assemblies are malfunctioning. Do you hear the motors run on the windows when you go up or down with the switch? I also have a Pacifica, 2005, however no window problems yet.
