Get a manual on your car from the parts store and it will tell you haow to remove the door panel if necessary plus tell you how the wiring runs. You just have to trace the voltage.

Remove switch panel and jump wires on switch- if this works bad switch Remove door panel and see if the motor is getting power-if it is getting power, bad motor

Sounds like your window drive motor is bad. The power draw is evident, causing the dimming.

You will not want to believe this but it came straight from a dealer who demonstrated it. The windows become stuck from collected dirt around the rubber window seal. While holding down the power window switch to lower the window, slam the corresponding back door. Your window will open. You will have to do this periodically. Not what you expect from a $30,000 car is it? Check it once in a while. You would hate to be caught inside the care because of a frozen window.

Use a power supply tester. You can get them on ebay for under $5.

remove the door panel then remove the switch which is secured at one closest to the front end by a Philips screw into a gold retainer

That would depend on what's wrong with it. If one window isn't getting power (but others are) you can discount fuse or relay issues and just focus on that one window. If none of the windows work then chances are pretty good it's simply a bad fuse. Other electrical issues could range from a faulty switch to a burned out motor. If the problem is mechanical it's probably simpler to troubleshoot. Just remove the door (or side if it's the rear window) panel to see if the glass has slipped out of the carrier or something has come loose. Bottom line, identify the problem then use a logical process to troubleshoot and repair. Cheers

First determine the problem Remove door panel to see if power is getting to motor--if so motor is bad--if not could be switches or wiring to same

The only window that is heated in any car is the rear window. As far as I know ther's no such thing as a power heated window

The most common cause for an engine to lose power is a plugged fuel line or nonworking fuel pump. A plugged air filter can also cause the problem.

You need to troubleshoot the problem---isolate what the cause is before you can fix the "problem." On a quiet street, turn your ignition on (no engine nor radio running is best.) and try to operate the window. Do you hear any noises? None, check power to unit. Grinding, check to make sure the motor gears and the window regulator are aligned. Some "whining sound, maybe a frozen motor or stripped gears. If no action or noise, it could be something as simple as a blown fuse or a broken switch or as difficult as a blown motor. You can troubleshoot further by using a circuit tester or multimeter.
