This Happened my drivers window as well. Turned out that the switch carbon pad had worn out. Even though when I removed the switch it looked perfect and it had continuity across the switch pad, it would not operate the window.
I bought some carbon paint on ebay, painted it on to the pad, and it's worked ever since.
