The fuse is under the dash on the driver's side, but if its only one window its not the fuse. My guess would be the sitch or the regulator. Try taking the switch out and cleaning the contacts, you'll have to pull the door panel to do this, but it will also let you have a look at the regulator and also make sure there's no chafed wires or such.

It helps to have a panel tool, looks almost like a gasket scraper with a notch in the middle, but its held on with expansion clips that pry out, you have to be careful and patient so you don't break them or pull them free from the panel, but with the tool or a screwdriver you gently pry between the actual door and the pnael and it will separate. Its not hard, but take your time and make sure you get them all, then the wires will unclip from the window, door, and on driver side the mirror switch and you can get in there.

dude this happened to me but it was my drivers side and it got stuck while being down. hit the bottom middle/bottom slight right of the door (kinda near the speaker) a few times kinda hard but not hard enough to mess anything up. i did this and my window worked right away and no problems since. try it and lemme know

I doubt it's the fuse. Most likely the window motor.

same exact thing happen to me, except mine was stuck down!! and im in KS ( rain rain is bad. Mine ended up being a motor. you might want to check the switch. just remove the door handle cluster, and switch out the switches, meaning put the driver side on the passenger side and see if it works. if it does then ur switch is bad, if it doesn't then its ur motor.

there is a notch that u can just push down on with ur hand and pull it out, its easy. once u get that off remove the screws on the back side of the cluster. then remove the door cuff, the piece of plastice around the door handle. Take off the window seal ontop of the door panel, you can just push up on it. Then just push up on the door panel and it will pop off. the hardest part is removing all the slides to get to the window motor. you can remove the window motor without taking off the whole metal cover on the door. just BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN REMOVING THE WINDOW ITSELF. i scratched the tint and had to take it all off because it looked that bad. this is a TWO PERSON JOB unless you have 4-5 hands yourself. Then its just a process of reversing the oporations and puting everythign back where u got it. i did mine in about 20-25 min to remove and about 30 to put back. it is a DIY project, but you can pay to have it done if you dont wanna risk scratching your tint. good luck to you.

Your motor is going bad. If it does it again try to bang on the door while holding the switch up to get the glass to go up. Sometimes banging on the motor will get it to work.

If the fuse was popped the window wouldn't work at all. He just said he got it to work the next day. A lot of cars have 2 different circuits for the headlights. A low beam can be out, and replacing the bulb like you would think may not always fix it. Plus a lot of bulbs these days have 2 filaments in them anyway.
