First, I would check the power window fuse. It is a 30 amp fuse which should be located in the central junction box. Power window fuses often blow as a result of someone holding the window switch down too long. If the fuse is good, suspect a problem with the power window master switch, or a bad ground. If you have a single cab truck, there is also the remote possibility that both of the window motors have failed. I suggest you have a trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the cause of your truck’s inoperative window.
