The window motor or regulator could be at fault for your window not moving. If you hear a noise when you try to move the window, then the regulator is broken. If you do not hear any noise, then your motor is not working and would need to be checked to see if it is getting the proper power from the switch. You may have a defective motor and regulator. I would recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, see what has failed by removing the door panel and running a diagnosis on your window for you.
