Ford 2002 Explorer power window will not roll up

It is freezing below zero here. I rolled my driver side window down and it will not roll back up. I tried pulling the window up and it rolled all the way in. I can hear the motor when I push down, but it hesitate when I push up. What the case may be with my window?

SOURCE: Window motor rolls down but not up.

I think that the switch itself is losing contact. By switch I mean the button you are depressing to roll up the window.

SOURCE: Windows will not operate on my 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

window relay module probably went bad. theres a window relay under the dash you have power . try getting a wiring diagram mabey at an auto parts store or the library. so you can trace the problem down . short of taking the doors apart and checking the motors that drive the windows . Old fix with the old school cars bang on the doors from the inside with fist . it sometimes works the connections on the old school cars . Its stupid but it worked to get the window up .

SOURCE: back passenger window will not go up, but it will go down.

It obviously takes more power to push the window up than to release it down. I believe that the regulator on your motor is going bad. I believe that you have to replace the entire assembly. It is actually a simple job to do though. You first have to pop the door panel off which is held on by plastic clips and three screws. Then pop the two linkages for the lock and handle out and unplug electrical you then have to take the wrap off that is held by black RTV that is used for moisture control. there should be to brass clips holding your window in that you need to pop off and release the window from the assembly and unhook the power wire for the window motor. Then there are about five bolts holding the assembly in (3 for the motor and 2 or three for the track) once you unbolt them the assembly will slide out. Then in goes the new one; you may need someone to help hold the window once you get it in place and you are clipping it in. I think the assembly is 70-90 dollars.

SOURCE: driver's window won't roll up all the way

If you have power windows it should be a broken cable, If its manual then it should be the crank asm. or the white plastic trac, it may torn at the end.

My 1998 ford explorer driver side power window will not roll back up! :-(

From your description it sounds like the motor is drawing too many amps and a circuit breaker is opening (to protect the motor). That could be from one of two things: a failing motor or a bad set of gears or some other hindrance that is causing the motor to work too hard. Auto circuit breakers generally reset themselves after everything cools down. Since it happened on more than one window it could also be that the circuit breakers are getting old and less reliable meaning that they will continue to fail more often. The symptoms do not suggest a broken wire

Sounds like the master switch on the drivers door. You can connect the leads on backwards to reverse the polarity on the motor and push (roll down) the switch to get your window to go up again. Afterwards, replace it. It is a master switch connected to all the other doors and a problem there could affect the other doors. Get one from a salvage yard to save a buck and give it a go.
