Tip & How-To about Ford Taurus
Frequently when an older car's electric window stops working the problem is a symptom of a faulty switch or failing motor. Follow this tip to temporarily resume the operation of your electric window if the window has an "auto" feature that rolls the window all the way up or all the way down by holding the button.
Step 1. Locate a rubber mallet or heavy soft object that will not scratch or break an item when you use it.
Step 2. Turn the car to on position so that all accessories are working including the other windows. Hold the button in the up position (if window is stuck down) or in the down position (if window is stuck in up position).
Step 3. In the center of the inside door panel with the door open, strike the door rapidly two or three times as if you were pounding your fist on a table.
If the window starts moving, it will likely continue to work for some time and this tip can be repeated until a permanent repair is required.
