Question about 1988 Mercury Grand Marquis
Does it have its own moter ?
Yes, each window has its own motor. If you can hear a motor run when you try to run the window up/ down but it does not move, it might be the window gear. Ford used what is called a tri-ball to connect the window motor to the window regulator. These are notorious for going out and are not too hard to change, you will just need to drill out the rivets that hold the regulator to the door frame and the large rivets and rivet gun to re-attach everything when done. If it is not something you want to tackle yourself your local body shop should be able to fix you up, they usually have the large rivet gun for re-attaching outer door handles which most mechanical repair shops don't have.

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.
