    my window wants to run but window just jumps up & down about 3/8 inch. goes boom boom boom

    If you apply a lot of pressure to the button, the window will go up. I have no problem lowering the power window, just raising it up is the problem.

If the window motor runs then perhaps the window channels need lube, get a can of silicone spray lube and apply to both window channels until it drips out the door bottom and then retry, if no change replace the regulator.

Passenger power window does not raise

Could be an issue with the motor itself.
Remove the door panel, and unplug the power window motor pigtail, and apply power directly to the motor. One direction is window up, reverse polarity the window goes down.
Some good directions with pictures on removing the door panel are from Muth Signal mirror.

Search on the page for the MY range and type under the Ford section.
Obviously only follow the direction to the point of removing the door panel, no need to remove the mirror.

Once the door panel is off, you can follow the wires to the power window motor.
This is what the pigtail looks like

If the motor does not raise the window, follow the thread at F150online on drilling the door to remove the motor and thump it against your rear tire

Could be the carbon dust in the motor is holding it up. Could work for a short time, could work long term. Worth a try before repalcing the motor @ ~ 140.00

sorry, ID10T error, posted a clarification not solution ( pictures didn't show )

Might want to check the power window motor. If you need directions on removing the door panel, Muth Co ( signal mirror manufacture ) has PDF download for the install directions that show how to get the door panel off ( if you are unsure of this ).
2001 SuperCrew directions :

Once you have the door panel off, check the motor itself, by unplugging the pig tail to the motor, and applying + and ground to the 2 pin connector. One direction will raise the window, the other will lower the motor. This is what the motor looks like out of the door, and that is the pig tail you are testing at ( this is what plugs into the factory harness )

If applying 12v directly to the motor does not raise it, you need to replace the motor.
Dealer and Napa have the motor. If you have to replace the motor, you need to use a 1" hole saw to drill the door panel to get to the motor mounts You will see dimples on the door panel, this is the location to drill :

Remove the 3 bolts ( they are more like sheet metal screws with hex heads on them), and reach up in the door opening to grasp the motor and turn anti-clock wise to remove the gear.
You can try hitting the motor against your tire, and test again. Dad's '01 Screw did the same thing, but the hitting the motor only worked for ~ 60 days.
If the testing above ( power to the motor direct ) does work, then the problem is with one of the 2 switches. Depending on use, this is usually the main driver's switch. It is ~ 65.00 to replace.

How to install a rear window regulator on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

How do you remove door panels and replace window regulator on an Intrigue? Answer : For a 2002 Intrigue – Front Passenger I didn’t disconnect battery. You use window switch later to align window tabs to regulator frame – with ignition off power locks work, nothing is exposed.
1. Remove visible screw under armrest, pop out finger inset oval panel, remove exposed 2nd screw. 2. Pop off door handle trim – lock button assembly slide thru its hole in door panel. 3. Pop off window switch trim/holder – slide thru its hole in door panel. 4. Remove 2 slot screws under bottom of door.
5. I used a smooth metal letter opener (or old fork) to pry panel from door at each point plastic fasteners insert into metal. Start prying a little, see three on bottom perimeter two inches from edge. Three on door open edge and three on door hinge edge. Slow and easy = whole panel will pop off. A metal compression spring fastener connects at top door hinge edge trim – pry out. Be sure door lock and window switch remain inside. Clean all surfaces of door panel and lay on back seat.
6. With panel off you see clear plastic moisture sheet stuck to door with black rubbery paste - peel it from door for reattachment. You now see mechanism and fastener points. Lay out replacement window regulator and motor on mat by door to help you recognize fastening points, etc.
7. Carefully pull glass all way up and hold in place with two pieces duck tape two feet long with ¼# removal tabovers. Put a foot on outside glass and loop over door frame a foot to inside glass – with room to later redo when you twice lower and raise a foot to access bolts removing/attaching it to regulator bar.
8. Remove 3 bolts holding motor to door. 9. Remove upper 2 bolts and lower 2 bolts holding regulator frame to door.
10. Lower window to expose thru panel cutout area two bolts holding glass tabs to regulator, retape securely. Remove bolts, raise window, retape securely by looping over door frame.
11. Window regulator and motor assembly comes out as unit. Unplug window switch tab to release from motor. BEFORE reassembly clean the inside of the door, put in a little Borax for bugs, etc.
12. Reassemble by starting three motor bolts, fitting regulator assembly in door cavity. Replug window switch, motor can be placed in thru oval slots, leave all bolts loose. Replace two upper and two lower regulator bracket bolts, leave loose.
13. Turn on ignition, use window switch to lower window glass regulator tab bracket until accessible thru panel cutout. Turn off ignition, manually lower glass until tabs align with regulator bracket bolt holes and tighten these bolts. Take tape off, turn on ignition, raise window to top.
14. Tighten three motor bolts and four regulator bracket bolts, make sure alignment is OK. Remove your tape residue - clean goo from both glass sides with Goof Off. THEN raise and lower several times to assure all fits and works like new.
15. Reinstall clear plastic sheet, aligning any fastener holes and rubbing down perimeter with a cloth .
16. Align door panel, assure door lock and window switch are pulled thru. Visually align each tab on door opening side and pop them in one at a time. Continue on bottom – make sure you see them align or they will break. Finish on door hinge side and with metal fastener at top. IF you break a fastener, take one from small bag you bought from Pep boys - otherwise take bag back for refund…
17. Reinstall 2 armrest screws and 2 bottom panel screws, then pop in door lock, trim piece and window switch.
Clean the window inside and out with glass cleaner/polish/raineze so it will slide easily and your done. You can’t do anything about the motors going out. You can avoid regulator tab breaks by making sure the window is raised BEFORE closing those big doors – down is the weak moment!! I work slow and clean as I go, the job took two hours. I highly recommend – saved a bundle over dealer and they shipped everything in several days – as ordered!

The front passenger door will open from the inside but not from the outside.

Requires removing inside panel to gain access to latching mechanism. Most likely a part has broken. Make sure window is raised. Examine all four sides of inner door panel. Look for screws and or screw caps. Remove all screws including door handle, power window and remote mirror controls. Gently pry bottom edge of panel away from door while feeling for resistance (be certain all screws are removed). When inner panel is released, raise panel up and remove. Inspect outer door and inner door latch to determine malfunction (working both controls one at a time). Replace defective parts from dealer or junk yard. Reinstall is reverse.

Can't get door panel off 2001 ford f150

There is a philips or Torx drive screw behind the door handle and about 4 screws along the lower door panel. Remove those forst. The panel is then held on with push in clips around the lower perimiter. ( Sides and bottom) Pry the door panal off of these clip receptors. Maybe a wide bodied screwdriver will help. Work the door up over the lock where the uppur portion of the panel fits into the door along side the window..

If it is an electric window, check fuses first.

Good Luck
