You will need to remove the interior door panel to access your window motor and regulator. Before doing this make sure you check your fuses and they are all good. Once your door panel is removed you can use a 12 volt test light( available most auto parts stores) to check for power to the motor. Look at your motor, there's a connector on it. Depress the locking tab on the connector and remove it. Using your test light point probe the end of the connector, touching each terminal, while moving your window switch both up and down. It would be easier to have someone help you by moving the switch because doing it one handed can be tricky sometimes but it can be done. If your test light lights up while moving the switch this means you've found the power wire, make sure it lights going in both directions. If so, your window motor is bad, you'll have to replace it. If not then you have a problem with your circuit, either a switch, relay, or wiring problem. It's a good idea to get a manual so you'll have a wiring diagram, if you know how to read wiring schematics, but not necessary to check the basic stuff. Hope that helps.

If you have a multimeter you can go to the underside of the master panel in the drivers door and independently check the switches for voltage or with no power to the switch assembly check for continuity. Good place to start. If you get continuity to through the switch then you need to check power to the window actuators in the doors.
