I fixed mine by changing the window switch. Both the drivers switch and passenger switch have to be operable for it to work properly.
Otherwise, a new track from the jy is like 30 bucks

I found my issue to be a broken wire on the PASSENGER side floorboard, under the carpet near the door. It was broken inside the insulation.
