driver side window wont roll up?

could anyone help me with this problem. my power door locks, right side window and mirrow control all work from the driver side switches but not the driver side window. i rolled it down and now it will not come back up. i took off the panel to see if it was hung up on anything but could not find a problem. could the motor have gone bad or could this be as simple as a fuse???

If it were a fuse, I believe none of the windows will work. Check for current at the out side of the switch, then at the actuator (motor).

I don't think it could be a fuse as 87hybrid said.

The easiest way to figure out this problem is to check for power at the motor. That would require some sort of test light or volt meter. All you have to do is unplug the power wire to the window motor and while pushing the button up and down see if there is any power.

If theres no power then you've pretty much narrowed it down to a bad window motor which is the most likely culprit.

Apperently what was wrong was the metal arms or levers that hold the window and push them up and down were binded and were not moving. so i took it apart lubed them up and its right as the mail now!
