I had the same problem with my 2002 safari. It first did it on the driver's side window and then later on the passenger door.
This is a known flaw with this vehicle. It has to do with the solenoid overheating. Once it cools off it will work again. Phone up your dealer and talk to the service dept. They will be able to tell you the exact part and what to do.
Lucky for me it was (just barely) under warranty when it happened on the first window and for the second we knew what the problem was so just bought the part and fixed it ourselves.

The drivers door window does not always close properly. It gets out of alignment and you have to get it near the top then adjust it with your hand to get it to close properly. This sometimes takes several...

the problem is with the window regulator. it comes as an assembly with the window motor. i would recommend replacing the motor/regulator assembly.
