The right front passenger window is stuck in the up position in my Explorer. Neither the driver's switch nor the passenger's switch will lower the window. When either switch is pushed, a slight drop in voltage is noted on the gauge. All of the other windows operate normally, and there is one 30-amp fuse for all the windows. I have visually checked both door switches and they are clean (no dirt or spillage). Is there any other check prior to taking off the panel and checking the power to the motor? Thanks.
Unfortunately, I think the motor is where you need to check. If you see a drop in system voltage when you press the button, and the window does not move, then that would indicate that either there is a short or the motor is stuck.
