Probably either a motor going bad, or a broken wire. I've seen both. What I do is take the paneling off the door, then reach behind and remove the wires from the motor and check for voltage with a multimeter (while working the window button). If you don't get any volts, check the wiring for breaks or shorts. If you do, you'll probably need to replace the motor. I get them for about $50 (maybe less, it's been a while) from the local junkyard. All you need is a socket wrench, duct tape to hold the window up, and nimble hands. It's a rather quick and easy job.
