Help!!! Passenger window stuck down!

I have an '08 Jeep Compass Sport 2.4L and of course of all days when it's raining, my passenger window will not go up! It went down just fine with both the driver's switch and passenger's switch. I've ordered a new motor to see if that's the problem but it doesn't come with a regulator. I don't slam my doors, the door doesn't look like it has any damage, and it just suddenly stopped working. I'm not very mechanically inclined but my fiancÚ has someone who can install the motor and I was searching all over online to see if I could order a regulator but I can't find them anywhere. I need this fixed fairly quick because 1. I'm riding ghetto style with plastic wrap on my window. 2. I have a road trip from Buffalo, NY to Chicago, IL to take care of my mom after surgery. So my questions are these:

1. Does the compass even have a window regulator? If so where can I buy one besides a dealership?

2. Does my issue sound like it could be the motor only or something electrical like a short?

3. What would a fair price be for the labor for installation of a new motor? Or is it not that difficult?

Any advice and help would be GREATLY appreciated!

It could just use some help but the motor maybe going also there could be a short in the wire.. I've seen it happen in my boyfriends truck he's had to replace stuff try to help it along when you have it going up this might help if not you need to start checking problems with wires connections and the motor

We tried helping it up and it wouldn't even help. =[ I hope it's just the motor and not a short somewhere. I dealt with a short in my sunroof and that was terrible pulling down the head liner.

Update: Advanced auto sent me the motor but for the wrong side after over night shipping and my most wonderful neighbor got his friend to get my window up some how before it poured AGAIN. I SWEAR IT HAD BETTER JUST BE THE MOTOR!!!
