Question about 1998 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Passenger power window not working

The passenger side window and lock is the only one that does not work. I have checked the fuse,and changed the switch to no avail. Now I am trying to locate the relay that supplies power to the window but they are not labeled. Is there a diagram that can identify which one I should check, if that doesn't work then what other options do I have.

Check the wiring inside the rubber boot from the body to the door . Opening an closing the door a million times can cause these wires to break . Testing the electrical circuit using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter before replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose automotive electrical circuit's . You can find free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click body & accessories ,then under subsystem click on power locks or windows ,which ever you want to diagnose first .

try taking apart and cleanig all contacts first. make sure you are getting power to switch. Sounds more switches are going bad. They usually last about 5 to 7 years before they start going out.

SOURCE: power windows don't work

I had the same problem. There was a wire broken into where the wires go from the door to the inside of the cab. There is a rubber boot over the wires that you have to take loose to see the wires. I changed fuses, checked switches, and relays but i finally found the problem. I hope this helps. DVPNN

The main reason for this concern, especially if the door is used quite often and/or the vehicle has higher mileage is a break in the wiring going from the drivers door to the body. If you access this area by pulling the protective rubber back, shine a flashlight on these wires and look for a break (open circuit). look for shiny spots from the open copper wire. The stress from the door opening and closing is what causes the break and often you will find more than one broken wire. It will usually be a heavier gauge wire that doesn't flex as easily. Good luck, if you need more info, please ask.

Driver's side power window working, but all three passenger windows died at same time. How to assess issue? (i.e., fuses to check, etc.)


Check the window lock out. You may have pushed that on accident. It locks the passenger and rear windows so people dont use them when the driver wants to control window operation.. Usually for annoying kids :) The window lock out usually has a pic of a window with an "X" or a pic of a window with the word "lock"

If that is not it, It sounds like the controls went bad. This happens from time to time. When liquids get onto the window controls its common that some go out and or they all go out. I would put my best guess on the window lock out.
Only true and accurate way to check is manually see if power is exiting the window controller to the rear windows and or passenger window... you would need a Volt meter to watch voltage.

Why doesn't my 2000 chevy blazer power windows and door locks and remote mirror doesnt work. Power window on passenger side does work


well, the first thing is to check the fuses and or relay for power windows.should be listed in your owners manual. if ok, then remove switch from drivers side window and check for power. if power to the switch then use a jumper wire from power side to motor side of switch. if window works then its the switch causing the problem. Good-day!

Beings as everything that stopped working is on the passenger side, I'd think some wiring got disconnected or broken.

2001 olds aurora, no power to passenger side window modules..plugged them into driverside doors they work.. also tried pass. side window motors on d.s and they work fine, any idea on what wire is power....


If the driver window works, the 30A PWR WDO CB and the 10A DRVMDL fuse in the rear fuse block must be OK. The passenger window gets power from the 10A PASS MDL fuse and that should be checked. The rear windows get power from the 10A RRDR MDL fuse and that, too, should be checked. The same circuit breaker and fuses protect the door locks so replacement of the burned out fuses should clear up your problem

1995 Ford Taurus windows and locks not working


The windows and power locks are controlled through a central computer module called the Generic electronic module, you must have this module scanned by the dealer (or a well equipped shop with a Ford compatible scanner) to see what is wrong with the system.

Doorlocks dont work except from passenger side. mirrors dont work. windows dont work from anywhere


First, check all fuses to make sure that none are blown.

If the door lock switch works on the passenger side, then the drivers side door lock switch is probably faulty. Use a multi-meter to test the Drivers Side Door Lock Switch (Black and Pink/Light Green wires unlock the vehicle, and the Black and Pink/Yellow wires lock the vehicle)
If the switch is tested and found to be operating properly, you may have a faulty Body Security Module or Drivers Side Door Lock Actuator.

If neither of your Power Mirrors are working, you probably have a faulty Exterior Rear View Mirror Switch, Power Mirror Module, or blown Central Junction Box Fuse.

If none of your Power Windows are working, you probably have a faulty Accessory Delay Relay or a blown fuse in your Central Junction Box or a faulty Master Window Adjust Switch (all of the Power Window Switches feed through this Master Window Switch). If the Power Windows didn't stop working at the same time, you may have faulty Window Adjust Switches, or faulty Power Window Motors, this is very unlikely though. It would also be a good idea to inspect the wiring for any obvious damage.
