I assume you mean the front passenger side window and not both front and back, correct?

Does it make any noises when you try to operate the window? If you hear the motor working and nothing is happening, it may be the actuator arm. If you don't hear anything, the motor and/or one of the switches is bad.

If the window doesn't work from either the driver's side or passenger side switch, it's probably the motor is shot or a short circuit.

If it doesn't work from the driver's side but does work from the passenger side, the driver's side switch is shot. If it doesn't work from the passenger side but does work from the driver's side, the passenger side switch is shot.

The service manual can help you find the fault. Here's a link to the manual, broken up into sections. GW.pdf is the one for the windows, but the manual references various other sections depending on which part needs replacing.

What he said...

Check wiring to switches and motor, check guide tracks. Take door skin off and see what the motor does when switch is pressed. I'm assuming you tried both the driver control switch and the actual passenger door switch for that window?

Door skin removal is easy. Remove the silver door handle accent with a screwdriver (covering end with any cloth to avoid marring) or even better a trim stick. Remove switch panel the same way, get a screwdriver in between the upholstery and the panel itself and pry upwards, then remove the switch connector by pushing the tab in with a screwdriver and pulling at the same time. Now take out the two bolts you see that were covered by the finisher/switch panel. Then pull the door skin directly off in sharp motions (to avoid damaging trim clips). The upper part of the skin is engaged with a "track" that goes over the actual metal door structure.

Set the skin over that track first when reinstalling, if you push the trim clips back into the door first, it takes quite a bit more effort to engage that track since you have to push it up and over the door body.
