Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
The rear windows will go down, but will not go up. Replaced the Master Switch and checked the Relay Switch (30Amp) and it is good. Checked wiring at rear door switch and it is also good.
Well if they go down then there is power to the window switch and it can complete ground now turn the switch over and view the wires the center two are the motor wires with power one side and ground on the other the motor will go up reverse the wires it will go down so the other four wires are the power and grounds to make that happen one of those wires is broken and not completing the circuit.

Hello Wayne; Focus on the grounding of the cab to chasis. The cab is mounted on rubber pods so direct grounding through a mounting bolt is sketchy.. Motors require a very good ground or the connection will build corrosion and compromise itself. There is a ground strap from engine to cab under the hood. This little strap is primarily for static as the vehicle is driven. It stll should be tight and clean. The grounds that need removal, cleaning and reinstall should be two cables on bolts. The first is the battery negative cable. It is fastened to the engine. The second is a cable or braided strap fastened to the engine and other end to the frame. Chk around the motor mounts. I've found braided grnd straps at those locations. Good Luck and I hope this helped -Ned

Without proper electrical diagnostic equipment and based on the very through description that you gave I would suggest getting a new switch. I say a new switch because on the drivers side the switch is one giant junction block. I have the same vehicle and had my door panel off for some locking issues.
I have attached a link to Ford Direct. The part that you are looking for is Window switch, explorer, 4 door, right

Go to the autozone website at autozone.com and register your vehicle. It's free and you will have access to a full online repair manual for your vehicle. The wiring diagrams can be found there for your vehicle. (I checked). Hope this helped and best wishes.

Have you checked wires in drivers door jamb by hinges, in the loom for damaged, or broken wire?
Pretty common place for a short or break in wire from door opening & closing so much.

check the wires between the drivers door and the body,inside the rubber cover(cut the boot with a razor blade) Often from the door being opened and closed many times a wire will break here.
