there's a switch in the locking mech in the driver's side of the tail gate, more than likely that switch went bad. the switch is to keep the window in the tail gate when the gate is down. what you can do is jump the motor, use a 12v power supply, the motor works by reversing the polarity : -+ goes up +- goes down i'm not sure what colors the wires are off hand. if you haven't already remove the carpet, and the pannel, the motor is almost center in the gate find the leads follow them to the conector and pull the conector. with 12v power supply jump the motor if it goes up switch your leads and it should go down. once the window is down open the tail gate, and roll the window out and everything will be able to be serviced. i bypassed the safety switch on bronco, if you do that the only thing you have to worry about is rolling the window out when the tail gate is down.

the switch is a bugger to replace, not as bad as the power
window motor. I have replaced the motor and it worked great
Now it stopped working again . The motor works but The lock out switch stopped working. I was told by Ford that they no longer make the switch... I would have to wire it directly ..
Doesn't sound right//// and as far as rolling the window out when the tail gate is down...It will not happen . that is part of a saftey system
the tail gate has to be in the closed position for the window to rise.

I have a 1978 Bronco, and just had the same problem. Don't know if your Bronco has the same back window set up as mine? I left the tailgate closed and in the up position, and then removed the interior panel on the tail gate (easy access, and about 12 screws). Inside the gate, the rear window is moved up and down with a metal x-beam. One of these 2 beams was slightly bent, and would not let the window move up or down either manualy or electronically. Straightend out the beam by bending with some pliers. All good now. You should be able to lift and lower the window manualy if you have an acess panel to the gate on the interior portion of the gate.

I had a 93 XLT and had several problems with the back window. The first was just a matter of removing the access panel and putting the nut-bolt-grommet configuration back through the mounting holes at the base of the window and reattaching the x beam track. The second was the motor. It wasn't any fun but I disconnected the glass from the x beam track, lowered the tail gate and slid the glass out far enough to get to the motor. I used a padded chair to support the glass while I replaced the motor. Reconnected the glass and it worked. Eventually the rod at the bottom of the tailgate that actuates the safety switch broke and it would go up with the tailgate down. Before I
would do ANY of it again I would try to find a replacement tailgate. That's just me though.

I understand Developer.. I have no access to what you are alking about.There is an access pannel but with the window in the down position. ..I have no access to anything.
Everything is behind the glass, I am almost thinking
of cutting a hole on the outside. And I don't know wheer you are located but Ecology Auto wrecking in Santa Fe springs always have Bronco s.
Like I said , The Ford dealer told me to break the window
and just replace it after fixing the motor. John

Did you reach the two wires that are connected to the motor?. There is a connector close to the motor at the bottom of the gate. Try to supply 12 V to them. I´ve got bad contact in this connector. Never failed since I changed it. Find a boy with a thin arm so he can reach the wires and pull them out. Good luck.

Yup,! got the wires and did the 12 volt jump....Nothing...
I am really thinking of breaking the window" or just buying another rear gate.
