Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
You may be having problems with the motor drawing too many amps and kicking out a circuit breaker. If this is the case, you will have to replace the window motor.Check the window switch too.It can also be the cause of window not working.You can check both the window as well as switch with voltmeter or a test light to confirm which part is faulty.
The window motor is a 12 volt electrical part.So check for the 12 volt to the motor connections.If the voltage is low then its faulty motor and has to be replaced.
Also in your question comment you have mentioned that driver side window motor not functioning.So in that case before going for new replacement motor,i suggest to connect the passenger side motor to driver side motor connections and check.If the window functions with passenger side motor connected then its a faulty driver-side motor,but if the window not working with passenger side motor connected , then its not the faulty motor but the faulty driver side window operating switch.It has to be replaced.But in some cases it has also seen that parts like motor as well as switch are ok but the problem relates to short in wiring or the wires getting loose between switch to regulator or switch to motor.So confirm this possibilities also before going for any kind of part replacements.
Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

Remove the window switch bezel. It has a snap clip in the front just pry the front up with a pick or small screw driver the pull it forward and disconnect. Remove the plastic covers from the ends of the pull strap and remove the 2 screws.Then locate the 2 screws at the bottom of the door panel and remove.Then pull out on bottom of door panel and work your way up to release the plastic push pins.
