Maybe the window switch is bad or the window motor is tired.

Probably a worn out master (driver's door) switch.

Wrong wrong wrong, reset it by holding it down for several seconds, pull it up and hold it up for the same amount of time it took to get it up then back down hold then it will be back to normal.

I just bought a sweet 2004 2.5XS Foz... and the passanger window (US) was not working. Replaced the window motor... and the window now goes DOWN but won't come back up. Thought it was the window power switch, and replaced it with one of the rear window switches (which worked perfectly), and kept having the same problem: window powers down but does not come back up (and the motor is NEW). Decided to test both polarities in the motor, and yes, motor does works upwards and downwards (directly connected a battery to it in both directions). Finally, saw that the window master switch at the driver's won't raise and won't lower! So yeah... I am now thinking I have a bad master switch. But why is my passanger side receiving current in just one polarity (lower)??? Does a bad master switch really affect it this way???
