passenger side window goes down using either drivers door or passenger side switch, but I cant get it to go up with either switch, I can get it to go up with the holding down of the drivers key though.

Any Ideas

Sounds like the contacts are worn in the switch and by using the key; the signal is being sent to the window motor via the GEM and not the switch in the door.
At worst you would need a new switch but id try the breakers for one because the second hand one may not of had as much use as yours appears to have done.
Plus these units can cost up to 140pounds from ford excluding labour for the drivers side one.

No problem,
Perhaps try ebay too,
And purchase a Haynes manual. Then you will be able to change the unit yourself aswell as learning about your motor by reading the Haynes.

so what switch is faulty then, the passenger side door, (even though the drivers door also doesnt put the passenger side up)

Have a look in the owners manual for reference to fuses first.
And check the fuse for the electric windows, if its not blown then try removing the passenger switch from the connections and then try to operate it via the drivers side.

right, replace the passenger side switch and the window now goes down and amazingly UP too now, although the driver door still wont put it up is that switch likely to be faulty too (obvious question but i need to ask)

Sounds like it is drivers side broken too mate.
Very unusual for both to be gone at the same time, but if you can pick up a drivers side control for 20-30pounds then its worth a fix yourself.
You already saved 50 pounds labour on the passenger side replacment.
