Default Front Driver Side Power Window Stopped Working

It's been quite a while since I have been here, but you guys have been so helpful in the past with my PT Cruiser so here I am again.
I have a 2006 PT Cruiser. The power window on the driver side quit working. The window is all the way down and will not budge. When I turn the switch on to make it come back up, I hear nothing. I am thinking the motor may need replacing in the door. So...I have had this problem in the past with another car (not a PT cruiser) and it was the motor that needed to be replaced to the tune of $400 a window. My son knows how to work on my car, and I am trying to see if anyone here can help me diagnose what the problem might be so we'll know what part to get. He's not a mechanic, but he has worked on my car before. The other three windows all work fine. I would greatly appreciate any help I can find as I am a single lady. Thanks!

Take the door panel off and see if the motor is getting 12v when you hit the switch - it MAY be the switch (which is a lot cheaper).

That's exactly what happened when my right front window got stuck half way down. I was imagining $$$ when I had the car checked out and turned out to be a bad switch on the dash. Ordered the switch module and put it in myself in minutes and all works well. Here's hoping it's just the switch.
