Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Hello. My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you today. There is not a dedicated fuse for the drivers power window. This means that if the fuse or the circuit breaker goes bad, they will affect both sides. The issue that you are having is either going to be the window motor(the most probable cause) or the switch for the drivers side. To check the motor, you will disconnect the plug from the motor, apply power to one pin and ground to the other. The window will go up or down. Rears the polarity and the window will go in the other direction. If the window does not respond, then the motor is faulty. If the window does respond, then the switch is faulty. Here I am attaching the electrical information for the circuits to give you a better understanding.
