power window relay trouble

My drivers side front window will SOMETIMES go down and wont go back up.
I fiddled with the wiring inside and there is a little black box that seems to be involved. It seems like a relay of some kind.
It's mounted on a clip inside the plastic door panel.
It has a flat plug with 5 pins
There is a ford part number on the case but it's hard to read.
something like:
I've searched Google and been to auto parts stores and coming up empty.
Sound familiar?

The black box is the on touch down module. It could be bad. I'd start with your switchs and go from there.

quick sure fire way to test if its the one touch module, is jam a 25 amp ATC fuse into the 2 larger blade holes. This will bypass the module, and make your windows act like the one touch option was not installed. I've ran my 94 limited for almost 10 years like this. The cause of the problem if it is the module, is failing solder joints inside the module. If you want/need one touch and find a faulty module, A module from any 87-94 ford will fit right in.
