I had the same issue on my '01 530i. The window stayed in one place and I could hear the motor going up and down. It took me 30 mins to fix both the Driver's window and the front Pass window. Remove the door panel, then pull back the plastic liner. There are 2 clamps that hold on to the window. You will need to loosen these 2 clamps (that ride on vertical guides), either find the rubber pads (2 per clamp) that wedge between the glass and the clamp. (one on each side of the clamp.) or purchase new ones. Replace these rubberpads, slide the window back into place. Gently snug up the clamps, and carefully raise the window until it seals. This will set its position. Now tighten up the clamps again. Done. One other issue that sometimes occurs is that there is a plastic clip that needs to be replaced that holds the cable to the clamps, but normally only one clip goes at a time and the window will twist and some times break. That doesn't sound like your issue. Good luck.

Without proper electrical diagnostic equipment and based on the very through description that you gave I would suggest getting a new switch. I say a new switch because on the drivers side the switch is one giant junction block. I have the same vehicle and had my door panel off for some locking issues.
I have attached a link to Ford Direct. The part that you are looking for is Window switch, explorer, 4 door, right

sounds like you have a passenger window motor problem. Try hitting the right door panel hard, down near the speaker opening and pushing the switch at the same time. If it moves, the motor windings are and needs to be replaced.

the wires at the door jamb connector get brittle and crack and break, causing all manner of oddities. and it can certainly be intermittent. like your window rolls down with the door open, but does nothing if the door is closed. wires may need to be repaired or replaced with that molex style plug/connector in the door
