    There's a lot of things it could be: Blown fuse, bad key switch, bad safety switch (won't let you roll up the window with the tailgate down), bad motor, faulty wiring somewhere. Start narrowing it down so you know where to look. Does the window roll up using the switch in the cab? If it does, then it's probably the key switch. Not too bad to replace. I've had to do mine before.

    Also, welcome to the site! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
