Window not working

The driver side window is not working. All three others are? How do I determine if it is the switch or the motor?

Pull up the little panel that holds the switches in and hit both sides with a volt meter. One side should be hot and the other only if you hit the switch. BE VERY CAREFUL PULLING UP THAT SWITCH COVER! Those things for the four door are kinda rare.

Ok back on this. I pulled the cover off. I know power is getting there but which wires control the driver side?

I'm not sure of the wire color but here's a few ideas... test the other wires on the switch to rule them OUT of the equation. 2- Pull the panel and trace the wires to the motor.

If you happen to have a cordless drill battery (less than 18V) you can tap into the window motor connector, with the window switch unplugged of course and see if the window motor will work, you can reverse the polarity to make it go UP or DOWN. You can also do this with a hot 12V wire in the door BUT I would recommend putting a fuse inline with either method to prevent damage to your power source.
