I would first look at the window regulator to ensure the linkage isn’t tied up or tangled or broken in some way. Also, check for the correct power and ground at the switches and the motor. This will show if the motor has burned out or if the switch has failed. An inspection of your windows should be carried out by a qualified technician to have the issue fixed.
