You need to check the fuse, as well as the switch. Your going to need a wiring diagram of the window switch in the driver door, and a multi meter capable of checking voltage and ohms (resistance). You need to verify power to the switch, as well as off the switch, and to the motors. Make sure the switch is grounding. Many window motors are run off the driver switch where the other switches piggy back the driver switch and only working if the driver switch is sitting in a neutral position. You can always try changing the switch straight out. They can rust and corrode rather easily being located in the door being rained on, having drinks spilt on them, even if the driver gets in wet or sweaty.

Electric window motor seized. Those motors have internal copper brushes that usually lock after time. Some times a quik test is to get to the motor and tap it with a wrench while pressing the switch to get it unseized. ( Not a fix ! ... still needs replaced ).

The switch is bad...Well does it do it from both switches, or just one? If one switch then replace that switch, but if it does that from both switches...Your window regulator is sticking or binding on something...

its very common for the contacts in the window switch to go bad no more than it cost to fix just get one and yes its common for the regulator and motor to go bad your problems in the switch

I don't know everything there is to know about window motors, but I have seen this before, both mine went out at the same time, not together but a couple weeks apart, like they were dated. Anyway, I replaced both motors, then both operators. Now they both work fine. I would hang on to the old motor, you never know, it might be good, You might have a bad switch on the door, I had to take my switches apart on my other truck and clean the contacts, got both motors working again, Hope this helps.
