My windows were working fine until yesterday. Today, I noticed the driver's side goes up and down, but the passenger side stopped working.

Hello. The most likely cause of your new window not working is the window motor and/or window regulator.

In some rare cases, some of the wiring going to the window motor could be damaged as well, although this is very unlikely.

I would suggest that you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose why your window is not working.
