Tip & How-To about 2002 Mercury Villager

Intermittant Electrical Tip for 1997 Villager

I am not 100% sure of this fix for all Villagers, but, I had for sometime a sometimes intermittant electrical problem it would come and go with no particular method to its madness, it effected various components in the Van, one day it might be my wipers door locks, or windows etc. even the starting system, then one day I got what looked like a complete disconnect from the electrical systems, nothing worked , no lights, no horn, no clicking relays, no dash lights, no power to the fuses, no ignition switch nada, as it turns out there in a part of the Positive post that has a Red protective cap over the post, with wires coming out of it, well it appears that it can develope a disconnect to a point where no current passes through it and it is quite invisable to the naked eye, I took the Red cover apart conected it directly to the bolt on the POSitive post and everything started working and knock on wood its been two weeks without a problem, just thought I would toss that out there.

Check electrical connections, especially at the battery. If the clamps/posts are corroded be sure and clean them. Sounds lie an intermittent electrical issue, or maybe a bad relay.

It sounds like you need to clean both battery cable connections on the battery and make sure they are not spread. You may have to cut off steel clamps and replace with lead kit. Also, clean the 2 smaller wires on the poitive post of the battery.

Passenger power window works intermittently. Checked with volt meter and receiving electricity. Sometimes it will work slowly, sometimes normally, and sometimes not at all. Will lubricating the track/cable fix this, or is there a greater issue?

All dodge products have weak window motors from the mfg. If you are handy you can replace it yourself, however I suggest taking it to a dealer and having them replace the whole window regulator assy, that includes a new motor.
