Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Could be a problem with the contacts in the Master ( driver's side ) power window switch or with the window lock.
If you snap the window lock switch back and forth a few times, it might start working again ( this is the switch to supply power to the other windows ). If so, it is a temporary fix, and the switch needs to be replaced. Check with the online Ford Dealers for a realistic price vs your local dealer ( Tasca Ford & Southwest Ford are 2 that come to mind ). You can also jumper the window lock switch leads ( in the connector, they line up with the pins ) to supply power all the time to the other windows. If you do this, the windows will work at all times ( something to consider if you have kids ).
If the window lock switch is not the cause, it could be the contacts in the passenger side switch in the mater switch ( if you are missing ground, not power ) The ground and power are in the driver's side switch, then to the passenger side switch, then to the motor. again this would be a new master switch time. Think it is ~ 65.00 for a new one, or you can try to dissemble the switch and clean the contacts.

We have the same exact problem! we just jiggle the driver's side switch for the passenger window until the window finally goes up. Not the best solution, but it does work eventually, and it hasn't taken more than a minute... yet.
