Default problem with power window

I have a 64 Thunderbird Landau & it has power windows. We had to put the driver window down to get the car loaded on the trailer & now cant get it back up an was told it might be the power window switch bad. Is there any way to bypass this an get the window up?

This problem may be an extesion of your, 'car won't start' problem. I suggest you work on that first, then see if this problem still exists. Give your wires a shake and keep a keen eye out for movement at the connections. - Dave

If it's the window motor itself you're stuck. Sometimes they will work in one direction and not the other. You can try removing the switch bezel from the console, unplug the connector going to that switch and put power to the red or yellow wire. I don't remember which one is up.
