1994 Explorer XLT driver's window stuck in down position. Fuse ok. All
other power windows function. Door panel has been removed and now I'm
looking for anything that might cause this problem. Window motor does not
make noise or attempt to move glass. Switch seems ok. Happened only once
before, but corrected itself. Happed without warning or slowness, ect.
If you have no meter, wiggle the power connection to the motor. It's most
likely getting power to the plug if the other windows work.
Hitting with a hammer is probably the best bet since that motor gets the

Explorers. I guess this wouldn't apply if it's the driver's window though.
Eureka!! fyi Turns out the drivers window has a added gizmo for the
"express down" function that seems to be the issue with my power window.
It's something to the effect of a relay called "window control assembly".
That explains some missing voltage and no slowing of the window motor prior
