Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the window doesn't move and no noise is heard from the door when pressing the switch then you either have a bad window motor, a wiring issue or a bad switch. The motor would be most likely.

Electrical testing will be required to determine the actual failure. Have you actually determined the switch is bad through testing?

It went up and stayed there

No but I'll do that.

You'll need to use a test light to either test at the switch or directly at the window motor if it hasn't been done already.
