Passenger side window stopped working completely. Took to trusted mechanic. Mechanic replaced motor. Now motor works intermittently. Have yet to take back to mechanic because mechanic is 1 1/2 hours away. Currently enduring searing Atlanta temperatures.

My 1996 Ford Explorer power windows don't work most of the time. The problem started about 4 months ago and has gotten worse. Sometimes when I turn the vehicle off and start it again they work. I fear that I will get caught with them stuck in the down position when it starts raining, so I leave them up and use my AC 24/7. With gas prices the way they are I need this problem fixed. Does anyone have a possible solution?
