Ok sounds like the drivers master switch has shorted out .Thats what the buzzing is .Have you tried unplugging the master switch to see if the noise goes away?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i haven't unplugged the switch, but the noise only happens when you push the button, not constantly.
Expert:  Tom replied 7 years ago.
Ok sounds like it's coming from the switch though correct?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
yes, if you push the button all the way down to open the window it buzzes about the amount of time you would expect the auto-down feature to run and then stops. if you push the up side while it is buzzing it will stop buzzing though. definetly coming from that switch.

OK then you will need to replace the switch next.About 40 dollars for the switch .This would be the next steps.Hoped this helped.
