Your window regulator may be bad, or the motor on the regulator may be shot. If it's only one window doing it that's the most likely cause. There's also a chance one of the motor wires in the door boot has snapped because of opening and closing the door over time

The Rear hatch door handle does not unlock

had this problem myself.... you gotta go in through the back and take the plastic/vinal cover off the rear door and look for the lock from the inside..... unlock it .... open the door and then you can repair and lube the mechanism while standing outside like a human being. its not very hard to do.. just take your time and don't force anything.

Rear liftgate 99 Olds silouette van won't open

I had the same problem. You can't take the panel off without having the hatch open. I had to pull it loose
under the window and squirt about a hole can of WD-40 in on all the door mechanism. When I got it open I found out that there is a hole in the bottom of the door about the size of a quarter that would allow
gravel dust and stuff in and rust the components and the lock making the door stay locked all the time.
After the wd-40 I pushed the lock & unlock button many times and it finally unlocked. I then opened the hatch and removed the panel and then I unhooked the lock motor so that it would not happen again.
It has been that way for 4 years now with no problem.
