Corroded contacts is one possibility.
Pop the switch apart and clean the contacts.

I had the same thing you are describing happen on my RX-7.
Intermittently working switch on the driver's window.
Popped the switch out and tested it for continuity and no good.
Called the Mazda stealership and they wanted some ungodly amount for the switch.
So before I paid those thieves what they wanted I figured I'd take it apart for the hell of it, after all what's the worst that could happen.
The contacts were blackish, pretty obvious why they weren't making a circuit.
Cleaned them up with some fine grit sandpaper, put the switch back together and presto, it worked again.

For what it's worth that switch looked unserviceable and sealed pretty well (but I was determined) so I had to cut and pry it apart carefully to get to the guts.
Moral of the story, even if it doesn't look like it should open, there is always a way.

Good luck!
