Driver side window will not stop going up or down,
Driver side window on my 1997 F 150 Lariat will not stop going up or down, motor will continue to run and gear skips. Is there a limit switch?You have to let off the switch right at the top and bottom of the window stroke.

Re: Driver side window will not stop going up or down,
Sorry friend there is not limit on the switch, the switch will continue to provide power to the motor that is why there is a draw on the volt meter on the dash or the lights dime at night when you activate the power window and it reaches to the top and bottom as on the passenger side also. What has happened and should be addressed soon as you can is the window track has come lose or the nylon track has worn down causing the gears on the motor to skip when the switch is still pushed to the up or down position. If your not to familiar with the removal of the inner door panel, take it to a auto glass place and they can repair the problem faster and more economical then the dealer. Most dealer will call there glass person in to do repairs like this, since they know that it's cheaper for them to hire out and charge you the mark up. that's why you always see a glass repair truck at a dealer once a week. If you like to fix it your self, your going to have to remove the inside door panel to get the electric motor and window track and replace the damaged part or tighten the gears on the electric motor if that is all it is, but i am thinking that it's going to be the track that the gears roll on to move the windows up and down. Good luck friend and if you go to Auto Zone they can give you the step by step instructions to removing the door panel and buy some extra door panel clips, some will 95% of the time break and will need to be replaced.

You also have Circuit Breakers for your windows, Or your Master Switch ,You can Test the Driver Control Switch or the rear switches by removing the Switches and using the connector Plug and a Jump wire try jumping accross the wires,if they go up or down you could have a Bad Switch,if nothing moves more than likely your Window Motor is bad. BUT first CHECK your Circuit Breakers ,It could be Labeled as accessery Relay or circuit Breaker.
All power windows are controlled by the same fuse.
Therefore, the most logical problem will lie either with the driver's window 'switch' or the driver's window regulator 'motor'.
If you know how to remove the internal door panel to gain access to the 2-wire connector on the regulator motor, undo the connector and using suitable jumper wires, connect each plug wire to a spare 12v battery - this should operate the motor. Then, reverse the wires on the battery and the regulator motor should move the opposite way.
If the motor operates "continuously" in both directions when connected directly to battery power, then the fault lies in the driver's master window switch.
If the motor fails to move "continuously" (ie it stops part way) in either direction, then the motor on the window regulator is faulty and should be replaced with a known good motor.

could be the driver side master window switch... if the driver side window switch assembly is broken then the windows will not work... try using a test light to see if you got power to the with and and ohm meter to check all four switches on the drivers side
The window motors are getting weak. If they are stuck down you can sometimes get them up by giving a firm hard hit on inside lower door panel while holding button up. This can get the windows up until you can get the window motor replaced. If you would like any further assistance feel free to ask, Thank you.
here are the steps to test it pull out the owners manual find the fuse for the window insure that it is good if it is good pull off the door panal check the motor with a battery charger then if the motor works it is the switch for that window if it dosent the motors sometimes just freeze up get some spary lubricant spray it in the motor beat the motor up with a hammer dont break it more but dont go easy on it eaither this has worked for me several times
I had a similar problem in my 1993 Safari. Problem turned out NOT to be a switch, but a broken wire in the driver side door opening between the door and the frame. I found a cut in the wiring insulation, and it corroded, breaking. This disabled the window control.
