You need to put a earth on the yellow wire on the separate power window relay attached to the bottom bracket near the steering column.You could put a switch in the circuit to earth it when you needed it to or put a permanent earth on it but if permanent the window could be opened/closed at any time.

Your probably loosing power because of a short. There is a circuit breaker fuse on them, which SHOULD reset power instantly when broken, but some (if theyve been replaced) will require you to remove power from them for around 30 seconds, then there all sweet again. So thats probably why you'd be getting power then loosing it.

Try replace it with a standard fuse. if it blows, theres your problem.
