It's not the motor, it's the switch. Obviously, the driver's side window gets used the most creating wear.

In the meantime, SLAM the door shut several times. Don't be shy. This should allow you to at least close the window until you get your part.

Well dont feel bad if your getting a clicking sound. chances are the driver side window motor has worn out. you may be able to pull it up while pressing the up button. but if you get it up i wouldnt let it back down until you repaired it

Very common for window door switch to get worn out. Also common for wire in boot going through from door to kick panel to be corroded &/or broken.

My power windows will not work, and they make a clicking sound, sometimes I can open my door and close it and then they work. Also my heater does not get hot. My car is a 2002 Mercury sable.

Sounds like two different problems.

First the power windows: The power for your windows goes through a shielded cord that travels from the inside of the door to under the hood. If you open the door you can see this wire beside the hinges. If the wire is broken inside this shielding or shorted it will not work. Because you can open and close the door and sometimes it works. It sounds like an intermittent short.

The drivers side window button will make a clicking sound by the way it is made but the sound could be from inadequate voltage to the motor.

What I need to know is: Do any of the windows work? Do all of the windows make the clicking sound? Can you describe the sound in more detail?

The heater: Ford/Mercury radiators are known to get hot. So low heat is not common. The first thing to check, with the engine cold, is the fluid level. Normally the radiator has a cap to add fluid and look inside. However ford/mercury did not do this on many of the 2002 Sables. So you will have to look at the reservior. The big white tank on the side under the hood. It will be hard to read but there with be a cold line and a hot line on the side of the tank. With the engine cold the level should be above the cold line. If it is not then you will have to add radiator fluid and water (unless you buy premixed). This is the normal problem.

If this does not work then it can be the thermostat or temperature sensor. (The sensor will create an error code the thermostat probably wont). But check your fluid levels and tell me how it goes.
