    First question iiiis, if the window won't go down, how did you get it open in the first place?

    Sounds like a window switch problem, since the window regulator sounds like it's working. The window fix problem posted above will allow it to open, but not close. Try and open your windows with the key in the door lock, just use key to unlock manually, but hold in the unlock position to see if the windows wind down to test the mech out.
