Might be the switch or the wiring that is busted. Pull the switch out and have a look at the circuit board. Make sure there are no cracks in any of the soldering joints...it has happened to mine and I had to re-solder it to make it functional.

Was it intermittent before it just died?

pretty sure no fuse for separate windows. So if the passenger side works, then it's not a fuse.

If it was intermittent then it is most likely the switch dying on you. You can fix it by adding some more solder to any cracked joints. It could also be that the contacts under the buttons might be dirty and in need of a clean. Be careful with the button if you do remove it, there are 2 springs in them, don't lose those, you'll need them.
