Does it fail to work with either window switch? If yes, chances are the window motor is bad.

If it works with one window switch but not with the other then the switch itself needs to be cleaned.

Yes, pull the door panel and check that you have +12 volts at the motor connector when you activate a switch. If you do and the window doesn't move then the motor is probably bad.

My '98 Sportage does the same thing with the passenger window. It seems to be the drivers door switch panel, i think there is a bad contact between the child switch and the window switch. Pain in the bum. Maybe try taking the multi-switch unit out and spray all the contacts with contact cleaner. Best of Luck!
