On this vehicle, there is no one fuse that protects "just" the driver's side window. If this were to be a fuse issue, there would be many other items that were affected and inoperable. If just the driver's side window does not work, this will be a problem with the window motor or regulator. The door panel will need to be removed to gain access. Once removed, inspect the regulator looking for any looseness or slack in the cables. If the cables look ok, unplug the electrical connector to the window motor and apply 12v. One side positive, the other negative. One way goes up, and reversing them it will go down. If the motor does not respond, the motor will need to be replaced. If the motor does respond, the window switch will need to be tested and the wiring from the switch to the motor will need to be inspected for any problems. Like I say though, more commonly here, motor or regulator. If you found this answer helpful, please help me and leave a rating using the "stars" at the top of the page or click 'accept'.
