Have you reset the vehicles computer by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes (like you do with a home computer ) and then hooking it back up? Sometimes that correct an issue like yours.........

Willduff it always best to reboot the Nitro computer for any electrical issue first. How does the manual use of the drivers door power window switch work? Any issue using it? It is a known issue with many and has to be replaced! If you do so make sure you get the part # off the old switch to use to find the replacement being in the UK.
Check out the below Link.

Hi i have disconnected battery and i think the locking and unlocking is fixed but the window still goes down itself after
Manual use of electric windows is fine and have recalibrated driver and passenger with still no avail

Great you have finally figured out or eliminated what may be causing your issues!

I think you may have a window regulator/carrier plate issue on that window, another common issue for Nitro owners. If so, no repairs can be made just replacement. The following LINK may help.
