Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
It seems to be off track somehow it would work if you helped it manually. Now that it was rolled down compleately the moter will work sometimes. Sounds like there is a relay clicking when not working and when it does seems as though battery is weak????? Is there a relay for drivers side only, other side is fine. If I could find diagram for both electrical and mechanical.i think I could solve this. ps I know 240z 70-71 to frame off restore if I can help anyone with that. thanks for any advice Brian
There would be no relay for driver's side only. If the clicking is from the door, the gears on the motor may be stripped or the lifting mechanism, the track, may need checked. You will have to pull off the inner door panel to check. You just may need a new motor or a new regulator mechanism.

ck for power in the up and down positions at motor... one wire will lite up and the other wire will down... if no power up try looking at the wires in the door jam there covered by a rubber boot... if power to motor in both directions then its the motor

it can't possibly be a fuse if your front windows are working.
i also have a 94 taurus and this same thing has occured, the L-R window won't move at all. but all of my other windows work. it is probably a bad window motor. I've heard a lot about 94's having this problem. take it to the dealer and see if they have any Technical Service Bulletins about this.

ford window motors are bad about burning out. if you can get the door panel off try tapping the motor with a hammer and see if it frees up. if it does, you know the motor needs to be replaced. otherwise the contacts on the switch may be dirty. check the fuse too, just in case.

replace the switch. They have parts made of plastic pressing on the contacts softing these babies up making them useless in a few years

SOURCE: 2002 F-150 Power window problem
I have a 2001 Saturn L200 and just had the same problem. Just finished
smoking a cig before driving into work and my passenger side window
would not go up and it was snowing!!!
After checking this website I quickly found out that this a fairly common defect with the Saturn brand! Since the window switches are located in the middle counsel, they tend to dirty very easy, especially if you smoke, eat, or spill a drink in your car.
Before you go too crazy and pull anything apart...the switch may just need a good cleaning!
You will need a(n).....
some small strips of duct tape and cover both screw drivers with tape
to protect against scratching the counsel and switch. There are two
metal clips under the north and south positions of the perimeter of the
switch. Take the small screwdriver and start at the top using small
prying movements until you see some give. Take the large screwdriver and
use it as a wedge. Continue carefully with the small prying movements
and then follow up with the large screw driver all the way around the
perimeter until the switch pops out.
Now use the large screwdriver to disconnect the switch from the electrical plug....while in there....check for dust, dirt, and sticky residue from drinks.....clean as needed! Next, examine the switch to see that it is operating correctly. **My car had pop spilled on the switch and was causing it to remain stuck in the down operation of the window!**
Disassemble the switch completely and you will see three pieces. Use the hot soapy water and q-tips and toothpicks to clean every piece good. Be careful to not use too much water on the circuit board you could cause permanent damage! Finally, use an air compressor to air blast each piece good until dry! At this point I was able to get the switch function properly again.
All you should have to do now is work backwards and reassemble the switch into the counsel. Test the operation of your passenger window. If this does not work then you will need a new or replacement switch.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
