My wife's car is a 2004 convertible. We had the same problem. There is a switch built into the door latch assembly. Whenever you pull either the interior or exterior door handle, the switch lowers the door glass a certain amount.
We replaced the door latch assembly and that corrected the problem.

Pull the window switch up, raise the window, hold the button up for 15 seconds after the window is fully up. don't use the auto feature
Try the auto down feature again, see if it now works.

Check the appearance of the door window rubber tracks. Are they warped or distorted? If so, the motor has to work harder to raise the glass past distorted window guides. If the rubber guides are distorted in any way, they need to be replaced. If not, the motor may be weak, and it may need to be replaced.

It is likely the window motor is wearing out and will need to be replaced. You can always try a different switch on those wires to rule out switch problem. Otherwise, the motor will have to be replaced.
