Currently, the motor will open the window (take it down), but when I go to put it back up--the window doesn't budge! Sometimes it even slips down into the door panel somewhat--but luckily there has always been enough of it still sticking out that I can pull it back up with me fingers. I also have to wedge items into the door panel against the glass when the window is closed in order to keep it up. When I try to close the window, I can hear the motor running, but the glass just won't go up.
It has become disconnected from the glass. If it is a cable type like Toyotas they are expensive to replace. If it is similar to ford you can open the door poanel and reglue the glass to the scissor mechanism that opens and closes the window.

How about when the radio is on & the key is off or in your hand,if you open either front door does the radio go off & do you lose the delayed window feature assuming you have that If so you problem is a delayed accy relay Next would be the front door switches I will give you credit for what you tried but fail to see why you would switch motor from door to door,they work powered directly or they don't I would think your battery would have gone dead by now if the relay failed to time out or go to sleep
You have two separate (and unrelated) electrical issues. (1) windows - probably the fuse is blown - replace. If it keeps blowing fuses, then you have a short somewhere in the wiring to the window operator motors or the switch to raise/lower the windows (any soda/latte been spilled on one of the switches lately?, or perhaps a window left open overnight in a rainstorm?).
(2) interior light staying on - almost always a stuck/corroded/worn door switch - play with all four & you'll find which one has gone marginal (97% of the time its drivers door switch, since the driver's door gets more usage than all the other doors put together).
What you need to do to initialize the window is remove the window motor from the regulator. Plug it into the car by itself, then press up on the switch until it turns four times. Then hold the switch down for four turns, then put motor back into the regulator, and assemble back into the door. to make sure the motor spins correctly four times I make a tooth on the gear with a marker.
Have you checked the switch to see if 12 volts is coming out of the switch, hold it in the up or down position and test the pins, 2 will light, the 12 volts to the switch and the one out to the motor, if the out to motor is ok then either the new motor is no good or you have a bad door ground.
Most likely your window motor has failed due to dirt inside from normal
wear and tear during use, or overloading has burned it out. A second
possibility is that you need to reset the calibration on the motor that
tells it when to stop at the top and bottom (also necessary after
replacing a worn or burned out motor). Great service-manual-quality
info can be found here (link is to the reset procedure). Door panel removal is here. Window motor service info is here and here.
