Hi Rachel . It sounds like the plug on the drivers window motor (Which is also the ecu for that door) has come off or is loose . This will stop the cdl working as well . Regards VW Audi tech

There are 2 screws just above the door handle you need to remove. Remove the plastic trim around door handle. Then starting at bottom of door panel pull out to disengage the push pin clips and work your way up both sides of panel. Then lift up on door panel to disengage the weatherstip on top of panel.

I've had a similar problem with my 2003 Buick Century. In my case, the driver's side front window one day went up and would not come down. I knew that the switch was malfunctioning by sticking in the up position since the window continued up despite the fact that Iet off the switch when the window was half way up and it continued going up. I had to pull over and pull the master switch assembly from the door panel and unplug it to prevent the window motor from being damaged by the constant power feeding it after the window was up. Basically, it would have burned the motor out. I cleaned the switch and it now works fine most of the time. I still need to replace the assembly. Not sure this is the reason in your case. I would check the back window and see if it goes down with the switch on the back door panel. If it does, then you are having problem with the master switch assembly on your front door panel. Moisture from rain from the window being down during rain or dirt may have corroded the switches' contacts.

You need to replace the regulator. When cable comes off track it usually binds up in the motor. motor, and cable all come preassembled as one unit, known as the regulator.

You have to carefully remove the panel. They are all "snapped" into place. If you have not done this before, it's hard to describe. You may have to remove a lever, I have never done the back panels, just the front ones, but it was not too bad. Use a medium sized screw drive and take your time.
Odds are there is a green / yellow plastic part that has failed. This usually happens on the front ones, but I guess it could on the back ones. This plastic part fails that holds the window in the runners.
Once the panel is off this is easy to fix. You will have to get the part at a dealer and the put back on. There is a metal retaining pin you will have to deal with.
When testing, please be very careful putting the window all the way up. It is amazing how easy it is to break a window if it is not lined up correctly. My friend broke two trying to fix one of his cars (not a Saab).
I have had to fix a front in my wife's 2001 replacing the plastic part.
This is a known issue
