When you activate the switch, can you hear the window motor operating or attempting to operate?

Hello, my name is***** most likely means broken wire in door jam or the window motor itself has failed. Unplug window motor and check to see if it has good power/ground on each wire when pressing window switch up/down if so that means window motor is problem. If it doesn't have good power/ground then check resistance on wire that goes between window motor and drivers side master switch. If either of the two wires have over 5 ohms resistance then check for broken wires in door jam. This would cost around $300 at a shop depending on wht the problem is. Here is a wiring diagram to help with testing, let me know if you have more queestions. Thanks.
