Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

Power window will not work

I have a 99 ford taurus. My passenger wide power window stopped working today. I had it rolled down and now it will not roll back up. All the other windows work? what can I do? Is this an expensive fix?

    Today, I was pulling on the door panel to see how I would get it off to see if it was the motor. And it started working. I think mabye it was just stuck by something. I did park it under a tree for a few days, and on the windshield and stuff was a bunch of sticky sap like stuff from the tree. And I had to wash it off. I am thinking mabye some of this was on the side window and it caused it to stick. But is currently working again.

Test the window switch for proper operation at both switches, if neither works then you will have to replace the power window motor.

    It is more likely the brushes in the motor got stuck, but for now all is well. Just keep your fingers crossed.

1995 Ford Taurus front passenger window went down and won't roll up


Remove the switch panel and check to see there is 12V power there.. If there is Push the switch and see if the power comes out of it to drive the motor, if the power is not present check the wire back looking for the short.. usually if the power is missing none of the windows will work. look where the wires come out the door post to the door. look at fuses, If there is power and it does not come through the switch when you push the switch. the switch might be bad. in which case jump the switch to roll window up and buy a new switch (rock auto.com) if you apply 12v power and the window still will not go up.. you will need to replace the motor. not a hard job. you must remove door panel and remove regulator and motor and replace and reinstall. either junk yard part, craigslist part or new at Rock auto.. Post a comment and let us know what happens.

04 taurus Power Windows, passanger side goes down, not up, new mo


It is most likely the switch itself. since the down works that means that there is power going to the switch. So, the up position switch is probably worn out.

Passenger window doesn't go up, it only goes down.


Unfortunately, this is a hit or miss problem with your generation of Taurus window motors. I am assuming it is Power windows. If it is not Power windows it could have come of track and/or hit a snag. To get a better look you will need to remove the door panel by the screws in the door handle,etc.. and clips around the frame of the door panel. Once removed, there will be a a few places to see what is actually happening when you try to roll the window up.. If it is power windows the true work is rolling UP the window,as gravity is what rolls it down. If you SEE the motor spinning but the window is stationary, you have a snag. If it isnt spinning you can get a new motor from a dealer or even a junkyard. If it is Manual windows.. You SHOULD HOPEFULLY see where and how the window is catching and not rolling up.. hope this helps and good luck!

Back windows are not rolling down


Rear windows on my 2002 Taurus stopped working. Fuse OK. Problem is only with the rear windows. Started as an intermittent problem on one window and now neither rear window works.

Fuse box diagram


it can't possibly be a fuse if your front windows are working.
i also have a 94 taurus and this same thing has occured, the L-R window won't move at all. but all of my other windows work. it is probably a bad window motor. I've heard a lot about 94's having this problem. take it to the dealer and see if they have any Technical Service Bulletins about this.
