Sometimes you can get the window to work 1 time by turning on the key, hold the switch in the up position while some slams the door closed or bangs on the bottom of the door with a rubber hammer, if that won't work then you could remove the door panel remove the window linkage and raise the window manually then cut some wooden blocks to fit inside and long enough to block the window in the up position.


Sometimes if you press the button on the door and press your hand against the window, pushing up at the same time, you can get a power window shut. Then get it to a repair shop. You an go to this link to get an estimate of replacing the window motor or regulator.
