I had the same problem a few years ago except my window was stuck up. There is a cable inside the door that controls the window (not sure what it's called). Anyway, that cable was broken so the motor was working but not the window. Take the door panel off and you should be able to see the cable and if it's still attached correctly.

i had the same problem with my car...it was the motor starting to wear out---it would be easiest to get one from a pick and pull or a recycling lot and just switch them out...in the meantime, pull up on the window as you press the lift button and it should be able to get all the way up until you can remedy it....and also check to make sure the rubber seal-like liner that lines the bottom of the window along the door isn't causing a heavy amount of friction
could be the driver side master window switch... if the driver side window switch assembly is broken then the windows will not work... try using a test light to see if you got power to the with and and ohm meter to check all four switches on the drivers side
What you need to do to initialize the window is remove the window motor from the regulator. Plug it into the car by itself, then press up on the switch until it turns four times. Then hold the switch down for four turns, then put motor back into the regulator, and assemble back into the door. to make sure the motor spins correctly four times I make a tooth on the gear with a marker.
Hi. Sounds like the "anti-pinch" mechanism is coming into action on the drivers side. If the window encounters any resistance when closing it will stop. Check the window seal for damage and correct fitment, make sure there is nothing obstructing the glass. If you are OK with the seal and channels at either side and the window is going up an down "square", try some lubricant in the channels either side with the window in the down position and operate a few times.
Passenger side. The motor for the window must have been disconnected from battery voltage at some time and it has lost its reference points. That is, where to start and stop. Nudge the window near to the top, but not closed, then close the window holding the switch down for at least 5 seconds. Then open the window and hold the switch down as before. You may have to do this more than once.
There should be a section in your owners manual covering this procedure.
I don't think the two problems are connected physically.
I've got one sitting outside right now with the same problem...Both motors are burned out. The motors are really low quality and can't push the window up the track unless everything is perfectly free (never happen on an older car). They run about $35 to $60 each depending upon what you buy. They are riveted to the door and need to be drilled to remove.
A car I owned the left rear window did that. I could pull it up by taking a hold of it while another person held the switch. They told me the problem was the track was made out of plastic and it had broken. They had to replace the track. Yes it was expensive to repair but is ok now.
I wouls suspect you have either a inoperative window regulator (the frame work for the power glass) or a bad power window motor. More often then not the are sold as a single assembly and are not very hard to replace on this vehice.
