where is the relay located for the rear passenger side window

Asked by Dec 14, 2015 at 03:23 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

window goes down, but not up... looked at wiring, don't see a fault at the classic locations, so I think its a relay. I know the relay is in the Fuse box up under the hood, but how do I tell which one it is?

I would suspect the switch. If the window goes down then it is not the relay.

Thanks! I had thought relay because maybe half of it wasn't working anymore for whatever reason...

A window that goes down, but not up can be a sign of a bad window actuator (motor). Gravity assist the motor when the motor is going down, but the same motor has to overcome the force when going up. If you can get the window up a little, try this. Have someone press the button to raise the window. At the same time grasp the top of the window and pull up. If you feel the motor working and trying to raise the window, change the motor.

I had the same issue. Replaced the switch and problem solved.
