2003 F150 Power Window Switchs acting strange


Asked by Jun 06, 2016 at 10:32 AM about the 2003 Ford F-150 XLT Crew Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

F150 4 door,  From the drivers switches, all windows work fine.  Windows do
not work from the other three door switches.  Heres the strange things:  I
lock / unlock the windows the lights on the three swiches do go on and off.  
My dog stepped on the switches and all of a sudden they all started to work
for a couple days.  Then my daughter tried rolling down as I was rolling up
now none work again.  Few other details if rolling down from drivers door
and the kids press up it stops rolling down till they let go, so switches are
half working ?  Also I purchased a new switch off ebay installed it in one of
the back doors and it worked for about 8 seconds and very slowly rolled the
window about halfway down and then nothing.  Drivers door switchs still all
work fine.  Thanks for any thoughts.  Jay

You need the window wiring diagram and a mulitimeter to diagnose this if you have the tool message back, if not I suggest you have it repaired. To much to guess at!


Sadly these switches are cheap and not something that can take weight very well...they snap together and snap apart braking the tangs that hold them together....admittedly they are cheap..a site toggle instead of press to break should have been used~
