Power window problems

I am currently having multiple electrical issues with my XLT F-350. I'll start with the one that is the most annoying, the power windows. My passenger side window does not work. The window can be rolled up from both the driver and passenger doors, but not down. I know for sure that the window motor is good, and have pretty much narrowed it down to a wiring issue. I'm not sure where to go from here.

Id say its probably a switch if your sure the motor is good, swap the passenger rear door switch to the front door and see if that does it, If not then I would guess the drivers side switch. I would be really surprised if its a wiring issue instead of a bad switch. If one side of the legs of the switch is worn out and making contact in one direction that would stop it from going in one direction and still let it work in the others and would also stop the other side switch from working

My truck is a super cab so I don't have passenger power windows. I think I'll just order a new driver side switch and if that doesn't fix it then it's time to break out the multimeter I guess, always fun lol.

Pull the switch off and clean with contact cleaner. My buddy had the same issue until I cleaned his switch.

I already cleaned the switch with contact cleaner, it still didn't work . I might try cleaning it lightly with emery cloth. I didn't do that last time.
