Default 95 Power Window Short

I've got a strange short in the power windows on my 95 LE. It started
with blowing the fuse under the dash and I found a few wires that had
backed out of the master switch plug and may have touched. Now the
right rear window behaves very strangely. Replace the fuse and the
window will go up and then without touching the switch it will go down
and repeat until the fuse blows. Could it be the wiring, one of the
switchs or the motor?

Any way to get the window up without hooking up by hand? I'd at least
like to be able to close the window until I figure this out.

==========================
See if you're getting a short in the wiring harness near the door hinge.

That's what I was planning to do anyway, but I couldn't figure out how
a wiring short would cause the window to keep going up and down by
itself.

Any idea on how to get the window up until I can get to the bottom of
this?

I was able to apply power directly to the motor and got the window up.
While the door panel was off I found the wire where the short is, now I
just need to figure out where on the wire the short is. There's a
connector in the door pillar I'll have to get at next.
