Will it move down? If not you need a motor regulator assembly. That is the most common thing on your car. If you want to try and jump the motor it will be real hard to get to. Remove the door panel. Then find the window motor. Remove the connector. Then take two wires. They will have to come from the battery so they have to be long. Hook the wire to the window motor. One on each terminal. Go to the battery. Connect the wires one way to see if the window moves. If it does not then try the wires the other way. If the window does not move you need a window regulator and motor. If it does move get a new switch
