Hello and good morning to all.
This just happened. As stated, driver's power window does not work, up or down, no clicking, movement or anything.
All other windows work fine.
Power and ground to switch. Power and ground into module on window motor.
This has the 8 pin connector and the auto up/down feature.
Thought it had to be the motor, so I got a N.O.S. Motorcraft WLRA-51 motor/regulator. Still doesn't work.
7 wires going to motor, I thought maybe the switch wasn't sending to all the correct wires. Tried a new switch to no avail.
No broken wires to door, everything has power/ground.
It's still got nothing.
I'm at my wits end here.
Could the "module" on the new and old motor be bad?
Rockauto had the motor/regulator, but they are now out of stock so returning/exchanging it isn't an option.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts, tips, etc....

Had the same problem with my '96 Explorer. This probably isn't helpful but after replacing switch and testing motor it turned into an intermittent problem. So, since I really only use it in the snow and to haul thing, I disabled the motor where the window was in the up position.

As a follow-up to this:

I needed to get this fixed as NH requires the windows to work for the state inspection.

I had a friend at the garage print out the wiring diagram for this switch/motor.
Turns out I did have a bad wire going through the door jamb. Tiny yellow wire on ACC circuit lost power going to the motor.
Fixed it and all is well in the world.

Thanks for reading.
Maybe this will help someone else out someday :)
