You will have to remove door trim and watershield to inspect motor and windings etc. For cause of the fault?

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
POWER WINDOW MOTOR
Removal & Installation
Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove door trim panel and watershield. Raise window glass fully and tape in place. Disconnect window motor harness connector. Remove top and bottom center door glass run retainer nuts to loosen center door glass run retainer.
CAUTION:When drilling out rivets, do not enlarge holes in door.

Using a punch, drive pin from center of all 4 window regulator assembly retaining rivets. Ensure wiring is not in line with window regulator retaining rivets. Using 1/4" (6.35 mm) drill bit, drill out remainder of each rivet. Remove window regulator assembly.
WARNING:Before removing window motor from regulator, ensure regulator arms are in a fixed position to prevent counterbalance spring unwind. Failure to do so may result in serious injury.

Remove bolts and separate window motor from regulator. To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten window motor retaining bolts to 53-79 INCH lbs. (6-9 N.M). Tighten center door glass run retainer nuts to 71-89 INCH lbs. (8-10 N.M).
