Why won't my Ford 2002 Escape windows/lock work?

Asked by Jan 09, 2015 at 07:00 PM about the 2002 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can control none of the four windows of the car from anywhere. I can lock each door
individually, but I can't use any of the functions on the front driver side panel. I checked
the two thirty amp fuses for the windows and locks and they looked good. Any
suggestions?

Did you accidentally lock the windows. That is the switch that is 90 degrees from window switches.

I did not haha! Actually, I resorted to the very primitive but time-proven fix-all and hit the panel where the switches lie a couple times. The lit-up bits on the switches flickered and then the windows worked fine so I figure it's a connection issue.

Now that is good old fashioned DIY trouble shooting and repair!

I have the same problem with my 2002 Ford Escape any ideas

Yes... "Hit on the panel where the switches lie a couple of times". It seems to have worked for Faulty Ford. (lol)

I have the exact probleme on my escape 2001 ! Could it be a ground probleme !

Bad or loose grounds are always a problem. get a meter and try troubleshooting the switches. You can use a jumper to check the ground.
