Why wont my windows roll up or down in my 98' ford explorer eddie bauer edition?
All fuses are good, all windows stopped working. Sunroof still works, wipers, dome light, etc etc etc.
Usually it's the Master Switch (Driver's side window switch). That's the most common failure anyway.
can you roll them down from any of the other switches? passenger side from passenger side switch?
No, none of the switches are working. I tried passenger side and the two back seat windows.
there a fuse block under the hood di you happen to check that?
yep already checked that. My driver window is stuck partially down
have you checked to see if your getting power to the drivers side main switch?
That's the next step, didn't really want to pull it off if I didn't have to but I guess I have to now.
I have no power going to the main switch. what wire is the hot wire? I cant find a wiring diagram anywhere
make sure you have a good ground check it off the fuse in the panel. if still no power then might wanna get a test light and check the fuses that relate with it. I will ask a couple buddys that might know and get back to the site. there is a issue where the wires come out of the body and go into the door with wires because of bad rubber boots and metal cutting or pealing the rubber coating off from laying on the metal.
Yeah I was gonna check in the boot but I have no juice coming into the switch at all that's why I was trying to figure out what color the hot wire is. I checked power to all the fuses and I have power. I have power on both sides. and cool cool thank you.
Blue with a Black stripe is the hot. Found it broken in the boot. :) Problem solved. thank you for your help.
glad to hear....
Hi guys, I have ford explorer 03 which the driver rear window recently won't roll up and down. There is power coming because when I press the window button (up and Down) I can hear a click with the window movement, but couldn't go up & down. Please shoot me any info how to fix this problem. Thank you and hope to hearing from you guys soon.
My 06 explorer passenger window wouldn't go up. I swapped the wires on the motor and got the window up.
Thanks Ron. You were right! I got to see the problem which the wire jammed and wouldn't go back and forth. I removed the whole object including the motor and was able to got the window up.
My 2000 Ford Explorer none of the Windows will roll up or down. All fuses have power and all controls have power. But still won't roll either direction. The passenger side rear view mirror was replaced and that's when all the windows stopped working, but disconnecting the mirror doesn't fix it either. Dome light is also out but as stated previously, all fuses have power and are intact. Please help!?!
Have yet to take off the drivers side door panel and check power to controls but I haven't even touched that side, why would it be disconnected. Only side I've touched is passengers
RBridge3... I am having the same exact issue on the same exact car after replacing the same exact mirror!!! We too have power to the switches, and fuses are good. the fuse for the windows is the same fuse for the power seat which works fine. Im stumped here. Were you able to find an answer?
I have an 06 explorer. All the windows go down except the front passenger side. Could it be a fuse or how could I check for other issues?
I have a 2000 Ford Explorer limited. After trying to remove the middle center light I touched something that shut it off now the Windows won't roll up or down. Did I possibly mess up the entire electrical? Any easy possible solutions or just take it in at this point?
JerryV310. I had the same problem after reinstalling my headliner. Someone on a different site said it was Fuse 27 that had blown. I found it to be fuse 26 (according to my 1998 eddie bauer Ford Exploder manual.) I hope you found the problem well before this but I wanted to post for people with the same problem.
I got a question my 1996 Ford explorer front window on both front don't work but the motor work the back window work fine........what do I do
If the motors run but the glass doesn't move, replace the gear kits in the motors. If the motors don't run, check fuses
It seems that the wiring harness passing through the rubber door jam boot is too tight. As the door opens and closes this eventually causes some of the wires to break, they may also become intermittent at times which is why once in a while your windows will start to work for short time and then stop. This may effect your door locks or any combination of windows depending on which wire is broken. You can often pull this boot back and inspect the wires, pulling on each one slightly can show you which is broken. Maybe able to solder new wire in between or may have to pull door cover off to get to them
I had the same problem. My driver window on my 1998 Mercury Mountaineer stopped working, but I could bear a click each time I pressed the button. I found a YouTube video that said a common problem in older fords is the window motor gets stuck. l did what he did and fixed my stuck window motor. Take off the door panel. Find where the window motor is bolted to the door. Take a hammer and hit the metal of the door. Not too hard, but give it 2 or 3 solid whacks. If your problem is a stuck window motor then it will start working after that. This technique saved me at least $100.
After replacing fuses and everything else and it don't work you might try to take the battery terminal off and put it back on to reset the computer. Then it might work. It won't work for wore out window motors tho.
