sounds like bad regulator, pull your door panel apart and it is the part that goes onto the motor. long bow shaped thing with cable attached. pop out rivets, (I think 3 rivets) and on the upper side there are 2 nuts that have to be removed. then wiggle it around till you can get it out of the biggest hole in door. Good Luck.

You need to replace the regulator inside the door. It's the little pulley system that will pull your window up and down when you push the button.
Takes about 20 minutes to fix, so you're looking at about 100.00 at the garage.

I would try to test the ground the motor first, also you can duplicate the ground with no consequence. If the motor is real dirty/ dusty, you may be able to clean it and ck the brushes in it while you are there.

We know the window regulator is good, including the motor and track. The fact that you hear a noise when depressing the driver side switch tells me that there is an open wire (ground side). It could be the the switch on drivers door or the wiring in that circuit. I would ride down an extremely rough stretch of road with my finger holding down the passenger window switch on the drivers side. If it inches down then your open will be a high open where the wire will only be barely seperated. If not the seperation will be a true open. It is usually fairly easy to swap a window switch, just to be sure the open is not in the switch. Hope this helps........Tennis123

SOURCE: Replacing Passenger Window Motor
Just replaced 2004 passenger side motor. Bought motor/gearbox for 31 dollars, free shiping on line, removed motor and regulator , looks like a guide with cables, leaving it all together. We taped window at top and used a pair of small vice grips to clamp the small cable to the frame so it wouldn't move . As we removed the 3 small screws holding the motor/gearbox in place , it slips out showing it has a large plastic spline gear slightly visible . We used a small screw driver to seperate the gear/motor from what looks like a barrell with that cable wrapped around it. We were careful
not to let this cable drum get loose, so we made sure one person held it inside the housing. Slipped the new drive in and done with that. No one mentioned there was a bracket holding the door panel and I had to pop out the manual lock button to access a small screw, don't drop that screw down insde the door, would be hard to get out. I didn't have to make any adjustment and it works great.
