Default driver side window won't roll up now the airbag warning light is on?

I left the window down in my 2007 base PT Cruiser about a week ago and when I got back in it later that day and tried to roll it up it wouldn't roll up. They are automatic windows by the way. I put plastic on the window and didn't drive it for about 4 days. Then out of curiosity I tried to roll the window up and it rolled up. I went through a drive-thru and roll my window down and it started stuttering about 3/4 of the way down and now it won't roll back up again. I also noticed on my way home the same day,today, that the airbag warning light is on. I don't know if it's the driver side or the passenger side airbag or if these two issues occuring at the same time are an indicator of a bigger electrical issue and could be related. Initially I took my car to Ken Towery and they told me it was the window switch. so trying to save money I bought a window switch but when I installed it the windows still wouldn't work. *Jsyk,When I tried to roll up the window 4 to 5 days later- I had the old window switch in. Anybody with any insight or suggestions??? Money is a factor so I really need any recommendations on the most direct/cheapest/effective way to fix. Thanks, Lucy

I had this issue with an alfa romeo window motor.

take the door panel off, locate the harness plug for the window motor. unplug it and insert meter probes into the connector. set to DC voltage.

operate switch and observe meter. one direction should be positive +12V, other direction should be -12V .

if you have the signal, then the motor is the problem. order a replacement and install when it arrives.
