Turn the car motor. Turn on the headlights. Try the window in question. did the lights dim? If so then the wiring and the motor are probably working and the gearing or track is to blame. It they didn't dim then the motor or electrical system is to blame. Go from there.

Dismantle the door and locate the motor unit. Does anything look broken / fried and could you take it out and replace it if you had to? L

W/ref the current best answer (Re-design) what was the result of that test?
We need to locate the problem area first.

It should look like a motor connected to something with wires and connected to the window with mechanical linkages. If you're not happy taking your car apart take it to a garage.
I don't know everything, but I know how to start on a lot of things...
