I am John, a Ford dealer technician.
I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.
Unfortunately the window motor does not act directly off of the switch, the switch sends a signal to the smart junction box and it sends voltage to the window motor. To put power to the motor you need to remove the door panel and put power and ground to the orange/white and white/black wires going to the motor. There is an easy way to see what is wrong with this window. Turn the key on and engine off. Get inside the car and turn off the radio, ac and all other accessories. Now turn on the interior lights. Do this with the passenger side first to see what it will do. With the window all the way up push the up switch and see how the light dims just a bit. This is what it should do. Try this with making the window go down and up on the drivers side. If it dims both ways the motor is bad. If it only dims one way or neither replace the master window switch. Sometimes if the motor is the cause you can slam the door a couple of times while pushing the up button and it will jar the motor loose. Other times you just have to replace the motor.

It is either-or. One way makes the window go up the other makes it go down. Unfortunately my wiring diagrams don't differentiate.
