[Q] Driver's side window not working after resetting the Power Window/Central Lock breaker

Question

My dad had taken the shitbox out a few days and remarked the central locking wasn't working. When I checked, the entire door switch panel was dead, so I set about undoing the lower dash panel to get at the circuit breaker. Once reset, everything worked, except the driver's side window; there's no sound nor any indication that the motor is straining on anything, not even the slight dimming of the headlights. Have I missed in checking anything else, or should I straight away get to tearing off the door panel and inspecting the motor, switch and wiring?

P.S. Shitbox = 1993 Toyota Starlet

Does this mean that other windows work normally when operated from the main (driver's door) switches? If yes, then pop out the master switch panel, flip it over, grab a multimeter and test the pins to see if it sends out a signal when the switch is operated. You might have to go through each pin if you don't have a circuit diagram around. If there's a signal, then open up the door, test voltage between the motor leads to make sure you get a signal.

Have you tried calling the car something other than Shitbox to see if she responds? :)

Ripped the door open last weekend, door panel connector's power pin had fused and melted the assembly, required significant force to take apart. Driver's window is on a separate circuit, an old school metal wire fuse had melted, plus heat damaged PCB with a scorch mark on the reverse side where the fuse is. Soldered a 16awg wire to jump the connection, and the motor receives power, but does not turn, plus continuity is there as well. I suspect there's a short in the winding, going to replace the motor with one from the rear door, and then buy a replacement/rewind the motor later. Thanks for the help!
