It's the relay.  It's inside the door on the right side.  Remove the door trim and the speaker and it'll most likely be a brown piece of plastic held on with two bolts and retained by a clip.  You should be able to get this part a junkyard for less that 20$.

On my 1996 ford contour gl the drivers side window doesn't work at all but all the other windows that the drivers side can control work

Each window has its own little servo motor and the drivers side is usually the one that wears out first. Considering it has done the most work in the past 17 years, it has probably died and gone to heaven. Should be under a hundred dollars to have a new one put in.

1998 Ford Contour SE Power Window Switch relay

I'd go with the switch. However, it might just be the motor! Many carmakers are having a really bad time with motors, especially Ford and Honda. My repair garage puts a window motor in one of those two brands about once a month.

I have 1997 ford contour driver power window will not work at all but all the other window work fine...would it be a switch or fuse problem?

checking fuses is always a good way to start and the cheapest. the switch could be dirty for instance if someone had spilled a coke on it in the past. it could also be the drive motor for the window. since all the others are working this could be a possiblity.

Drivers side window not working, when i press the button i hear a click and passenger side works fine. 2003 Ford Focus any suggestions thankfully recieved. Dean-o

sounds like a window lift motor, maybe try and bang on the door a few times while you hit the button, if that doesnt work you may have to take the door panel off and test the wires at the window motor

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
