Could be that the mechanism or the window is jammed.

If it's shorting to ground with the relay in and not when it's removed, then the relay sounds faulty.

The wiring behind the relay socket could be dodgy or loose and
as you push the relay into the socket, it could be distorting a wire and/or a terminal.

It's a common problem that they break wires in the door grommet. My drivers rear has been this way for 12 months.... I'll fix it one day.
