Because this truck has cable driven Regulators, there is No fix for it. Common problem for the Regulator Cable to come detached.
Replace the Regulator
Be sure to replace both the Regulator & the Window Motor as a Unit.

Reply to Lurch's Post: do i need to buy a new moter
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 9 years ago.

The Regulator is sold seperate from the Motor, but since the Cable usually breaks from usage & / Binding, the Motor is probably as worn.
I usually replace both at the same time, to keep from going back again
