Question about 2003 Ford Explorer
Does it make noise any clicking or anything? Do the lights dim when you hit the switch? Does it seem like there is power or anything that is going to that window? If there is no noise or power loss when you hit the switch, then it could be a switch or connection.
If you do have noise or a power drain when you hit the switch then it likely to either be a window motor or window regulator. This will cost a few hundred dollars to have fixed at the shop. If you decide to replace it yourself, it is fairly simple if you have basic wrench turning skills, and will probably save you a lot of money. You might as well replace both the motor and the regulator, and sometimes they come as one unit anyway. Depending on the layout of your vehicle, it is probably easier to replace both.
If the window is clicking when you try and roll it up, then it is probably the regulator (which is the cable system that pulls the window up and down). And the clicking is becuase the cable came undone, broke or the connections have broken.
Hope this helps.

Do you know about computer controlled power windows ?
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.
