Help window down

'97 crew cab right rear window goes down but won't go up, the power locks on this door are sticky as well. Checked out the wiring and this is what i found. red wire w/ blk stripe has power all the time, yellow w/ red stripe power with switch up and down, yellow w/blk stripe power with switch up, red w/ blk stripe has no power ever and red w/ yellow stripe has power with switch up. I have not much exprience with this sort of thing. What should I check next.

Might be a purely mechanical issue. Those motors cut out when the voltage draw gets too high indicating the window is all the way up or down. These old trucks get rusty tracks, etc. I had to replace 3 of my 4 motors and lubricate the tracks and all that. Same deal with my locks.

Three of my windows were doing that. Can you hear the window motor spinning when you are trying to roll them up? If you can then it is the bushings inside the motor that went bad. It is not hard at all. Its only a 9 dollar fix for two motors instead of buying a new motor. You just have to drill three holes in the door to get to the motor bolts.

If you look on eBay and search ford window motor repair it will come up with a ton of different options. I bought the metal bushings because he sells them for two windows and they will never break again.

Or if your cheep like me, a handful of nuts from your junk drawer work just as well as the metal bushings.
