Default Driver window not working

As i was leaving work today, i roled down my window, but as i tried to roll them up the driverside window will not come up. The passanger works fine, and i hear a click when i push the down button. This is leading me to believe there is a relay under the dash for the window. All fuses are good. Any one know what the problem is. And if it is the relay, were exactly is it. Any help would be great

Could be your switch itself. I have an 01 GT and my passenger side window wouldn't roll up or down and I opened up those side panels and switched the switches around to see maybe if that was it, and my drivers side switch worked on the passenger side. So I bought a new switch from ford, and it works fine now. Maybe thats it?

Damn if the switch is the only thing you have to do I screwed myself over. I had the same exact problem with my 02 gt. I was driving on the turnpike, went to go pay the toll and couldn't put the window back up. Well this was on the way to the track. Didn't race that day but raced the day after. We took apart the door and once we got the glass off the supports we clamped it up. We replaced the motor and it was good. Weird how someone else had the same problem as me.

Same thing just happen to me. I just got the car back from the dealer a couple of days ago and it was the window motor. I too had the clicking noise. I thought it was a relay or something as well.

Its weired, it wouldnt go up and i figured i would have to dig into it. So i was going to pull it into my garage, and i slamed my door(i was upset about this) and it magicaly started to work. Im scared to roll it back down though. Maybe there is something that is catching the window

crazy i read this, i have a 01 gt convertible and the same thing happened to me. I had the top down crusin on the highway for bout 30 minutes went to go get something to eat so i put the top up, all teh windows went up except he driver window! [:@] I usually press all 4 of the window switches at the same time so i thought i overloaded it. Drove home with top back down, got home and it went up, since i did it one by one. weird...hasnt did it since. My back windows dont like to roll all the way up all the time either.

Yesterday I couldnt get mine to go up (im gutting the 97 interior and have the door panel off.) There's a little electronic box that attaches to the door panel itself near the rear of the panel. Because I was swapping panels, I pulled the little gray and maroon box off and plugged it in letting it hang. Glass went up no problem. Makes me wonder if the connections into that relay or whatever it is get loose or the box itself is at fault...

I'll get a pic of the relay or whatever it is so you know what Im talking about.
