Are you sure its stuck, (i.e. can you hear the motor whining)? If you don't hear the motor attempting to run, the motor could be bad, or there could be a loose or corroded connection somewhere between the window switch and the motor.

If you do hear the motor, try taking the door panel off-that's likely what its catching on.

Likely? On mine the main bar coming from the power window motor is completely bent around. It was caused by attempting to roll the window down while iced up.

Generally, if the motor is not at least attempting to run, there is probably a bad electrical connection somewhere, usually caused by a little corrosion. The bad connection could be internally in the window switch itself, in which case you will probably need to replace the switch. However, more likely your bad connection will be at a contact point where one of the wires connects either to a terminal on the switch or to the window motor itself.

You can check all the connections quickly with an ohmmeter or a simple continuity tester.

A flexible emery board (available in any drugstore) is best for cleaning the contacts, and it only takes a few minutes once you get to the switch.
