Where is the rear window relay located on the 2002 Ford Explorer sport trac. Not the rear door windows but the very back window.


  • The power rear window is inoperative (Explorer Sport Trac only)
  • Circuitry.
  • Battery Junction Box (BJB) fuse 3 (30A).
  • Central Junction Box (CJB) fuse 20 (7.5A).
  • Power rear window control switch.
  • Rear window glass motor.

NOTE: The power rear window motor is not on the multiplex link. Any diagnosis and testing carried out on the power rear window will not involve the GEM module. NOTE: The reinitialization procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.

Rear Window Motor Initialization s1r~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the power rear window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: This procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when: the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.
NOTE: All power rear window components (window glass module, window regulator, window motor, and glass runs) must be installed and torqued to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes.
NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.
NOTE: Steps 7 and 9 require that the power rear window control switch be held in the closed position until the power rear window motor stalls the window in the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the open position.
  1. Start with the ignition in the OFF position.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position. The power rear window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has entered initialized mode.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls in the upper header seal.
  1. Momentarily rotate the power rear window control switch to the open position and release. The power rear window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window stalls at the bottom of the travel stop designed into the window regulator.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls into the upper header seal. Once this operation is complete, the window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has been successfully initialized.
  1. Verify correct operation of the power rear window by moving the window to the fully open, vent, then fully closed positions

How do i change window motor in drivers side of 2000 toyota sienna


Hai,

Here are complete step-by-step instructions (with photos) on how to remove a door panel:

Here are complete step-by-step instructions (with photos) on how to test a power window motor to determine whether the problem is in the motor/regulator or the switch/wiring

http://www.ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/repair-topics/window-power-repair/replace-a-power-window-regulator

First remove the inside door panel. It's attached by snaps around the perimeter. Pry between the panel and the door with a screwdriver, moving the screwdriver to a place where the panel is most solidly attached, and pry hard there so the snap releases. Then work around the panel to unsnap all the others. There may not be snaps at the top, but instead you lift the panel after unsnapping the bottom and sides. You probably also have to remove anything that's attached to the panel or that goes through it, usually attached with screws, maybe with pry-off cover plates. But do the snaps first and you'll be able to tell where else the panel's attached.
Then remove the lower part of the plastic waterproofing sheet, by pulling it away from the mastic around the perimeter. Pull up just enough to get at the motor mounting bolts.
Then undo those bolts with a wrench, and remove the complete motor and regulator assembly. The end of the long arm of the regulator will have a knob, which fits into a slot on the track at the bottom of the window. You'll have to slide it along the track till the slot gets wider to allow the knob to pull out.
You'll probably have to separate the motor/gear assembly from the regulator assembly. Buy a new or reconditioned motor/gear assembly from a parts store or junkyard or online. They'll probably want your old one in exchange (except the junkyard).

Electric window 1991 F150 ...351


If the lock is trying to move, like you hear it but nothing really happens, replace the door lock actuator. i believe the windows are on the same fuse. Try removing the interior door trim and tap on the window motor lightly with a small hammer while holding the switch. If the window moves, replace the motor. If not, check for power and ground at the connector. If you have power and ground (which switch when going up then down) then replace the motor. If you dont, repair the circuit.

Power window


if you can hear the motor humming or running chances are that your window is off track an jammed or the motor s just humming an has no power to bring the window up, driver side window is the first one to go out because it gets more use of than all the other windows. the ony better way to find out is to remove the door panel an make sure you use the right tool to remove the plastics studs , because you don't want to bust the plastic studs behind the door panel.
