1999 Expedition Auto Down Power Window Help

5

Asked by Jul 16, 2015 at 07:56 PM about the 1999 Ford Expedition 4 Dr XLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've already replaced the motor, relay, and fuse for the driver's side power window; now,
when I hit the switch, the window creeps down a bit and then I have to keep hitting the
button to put it down all the way... Holding the switch down does nothing.

I've already tried two "resets" I found on other fora--i.e., disconnecting the battery for ten
minutes & a weird key "dance" by which I held the switch down while turning off the truck
and then back on and releasing the switch and, etc.

Any ideas?

Try spraying the window track with WD40 with the straw and also the moveable joints of the window regulator if you can reach.

If still does not work may have to replace window regulator.

The regulator was replaced at the same time as the motor.

Question the window motor that you put in was it new or used ? And does the window work if you use the passengers side window switch ? If so you may need a new drivers side window switch for the passengers side.

New. It's the "auto down" feature which isn't working. If I just keep clicking the switch for down, the window incrementally goes down, but I can't hold down the switch to make it fall. I've read about the GEM module, but that's a road I'm not interested in traveling.

Did you try replacing the switch ?

Here is something you can try that might work wiggle and giggle the wire around at the switch while holding the switch in the up or down position may have a loose wire to switch connection.

5

That's what I'm trying to ascertain, if others out there think it's likely to be the switch...

Yes I know that's why I suggested to wiggle and giggle the wires going to switch while holding switch if it starts to work correctly just may be a loose wire going to switch.

Sorry, I meant to mention I did that already.
