A couple of weeks ago my driver's side window was working just fine. The next day all of a sudden it wouldn't roll down. My stepdad said everything was ok and it was just the window switch but I want a second opinion. The window wasn't going slow or anything. What else do you think could be wrong?
Do you
have the same problem?

This could be several things. Bad wires at switch or motor, bad window motor, bad regulator etc. Does the driver side master window switch control the other windows properly? When you push the switch for the inoperable window, can you hear a humming noise coming from the door panel?

Well I don't hear anything. And it does control all the windows and it works on all the other windows just not mine. But when I press it all the way down to where (if it worked) it would go down automatically, I hear a clicking noise.

Ok, since you can hear a clicking noise that indicates that the switch itself is working properly. At this point, I would suspect a faulty window motor

Oh geez that sucks. Well it wasn't going slow or anything before it just suddenly stopped working. My car that I had before this explorer didn't have working windows. One went really slow and then it went out.

I had the identical problem. Guess what, I pulled back the rubber grommet where the wire harness runs from the door to the inside of the car where after years of opening and closing the door, a wire finally broke. I found a broken wire which when I used an alligator jumper clip from one end to the other, the windows worked. So, I took it to a repair shop and they spliced it together. My hands were too big to do the job, but you might be able to if you find the same problem.

I've seen all three fixes. Window motor getting stuck, master window switch being bad (the contact for that window would be the one to go bad as it's usually the most used window. But the cheapest thing would be like charlie said and look for a broken wire. Usually the broken wire kills all windows however if I remember on this vehicle

Well my stepdad looked at it and he said that everything was hooked up and nothing was broken or burned up or anything and that all he could think of was the window switch.
