I have a 1996 explorer the power windows don't work unless I wiggle the wires in the drivers door jam

Ok, you will need to remove the bolt in the connector, then working the rubber boot off the jamb harness and into the kick panel, you will probably find a blue wire with a black stripe which has broken. I fixed this issue by adding a small length of wire into the harness, which did add a 2 splices into the line, but worked fine. Make sure the connections are tight. Soldering and heat tube are the best way.
