power window quit working. Most common cause?
The driver's side power window was working fine (no slow operation or anything) and just refused to come back up the other day. I hate to take it in to a repair shop because I have yet to find one I trust. What is the most common cause of this problem? I replaced the relay in hopes of a cheap and easy fix, but no luck there. I can hear it clicking, but no window motor action.
The most common issue is the regulator which is a small motor that powers the windows. Most likely the regulator has to be replaced.
The regulator is what the window travels up and down in the motor is what rolls it up and down and the switch powers it. More than likely it is the motor or switch. I f it is any window but the drivers see if it rolls down by using the drivers switch and then by the door it is in switch. If it works with the drivers door but not the door that's not working it's the switch in door that's not woring. If it doesn't work with either door switch it is the motor.
It was the driver's side, and turns out it was the switch. One day of car rental and $280 later, I know. Thanks,
Ok I have a 2005 f-150 I have replace both motors window tracks and driver and passenger side switches and still won't role up or down what else could it be
i am currently having the same issue as Brandon. All of the windows worked perfectly and then suddenly all stopped and i am having stupid things happen when i push the switch like the door ajar warning coming on. Any iformation would be helpful.

It mite be the strip inside the door
I just purchased an 01 f150 crew cab. none of the windows worked, so I thought it could possibly be a ground, due to the previous owner telling me that he would hot wire the windows. The rocker panels in this truck are rotted out, so I started checked the wiring connections behind the panel, next to the parking brake. I eventually found two corroded wires. I fixed these two wires and now only the driver's window doesn't work. i pulled the plug from the back of the switches and could see a small amount of corrosion, once i cleaned if off the window went down, but would not go up. Upon further inspection, the small plastic nipple that touches the contact in the switch had been melted off. I took a pair of needle nose pliers and bent the contact slightly to make up for the missing nipple. All windows now work fine.
