I let my window down and went for a ride. I made it back to the house & only the passenger side would go up. I swapped the switches still nothing. Fuses look good. I do not know what else to look for... maybe a motor? Please help!

Does the motor still make noise? If it does it's the switch is bad. If the motor doesn't its the motor and you can test it by pulling your door panel unplug the motor hook the motor up to the battery And if it rolls up or down its good if not replace it

I had the same problem, I actually bought my mustang with the window stuck down. Anyways the motor wasn't making any noise so I thought it was shot had a buddy who is an electrician try a bunch of stuff with no luck, his neighbor comes over because he is a mustang enthusiast and saw us working on it, he goes to unhook the motor so we can manually roll the window up and BAM it started working, somehow the gears locked up or something, but ass soon as he loosened the motor bolts it started working. So give that a try.

I've had this problem constantly especially in the summer i think its caused by the window motor getting overheated if you put it in the shade and wait it usually works or take the door panel off and I've had too before undo the bolts that hold the window motor on and that seems to unjam it hope this helps

Sometimes I hold door open and try. That's how I do my passenger window everyday. Think its pretty common problem. I've taken apart and cleaned everything and nothing. I've heard hold down button and hit door too.

Motor does not make a sound. I tried beating the door. Still nothing. I removed the switches and tried everything I can think of and NOTHING! I haven't tried the motor and a jumper wire to the battery though. I'll try it in a few.

Try opening the door and roll it up? On mine the wiring in the door must have had a kink in it cus it broke at the door and created a short but mine the passenger side wouldn’t roll up unless I had the driver door open.. strange place for a break but these cars have some strange issues with them
