Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
If you say you have replaced the driver's window motor and the window still won't go down, have you tried manually jumping the wires to the window motor? Try this with a positive wire and a negative wire from the battery to the terminals to the window motor. If the window motor works, the window switch assembly is possibly bad. Also, with a test light check and make sure you are getting power out of the driver's window switch assembly. Disconnect the wires going to the driver's window motor, connect the test light to a known ground(make sure the test light works) actuate the switch while touching the test light to the connector that came off the motor. Check both positions up and down. If no power check and make sure you have power going to the master switch. If no power, check the power window relays under the dash. You have to remove the cover under the steering wheel. It is held in place with some torx screws.

Do you know about computer controlled power windows ?
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.
