    none of my power windows work at all they all work fine early today

    I have the same problem. I rolled down my driver side window and then all windows failed, up or down. All fuses are good, changed accessory delay relay and that did not fix it. When I push the windows up/down button I see the interior lights dim a bit and can hear a slight click noise, but nothing happens. Any help very much appreciated

My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

Doubt its a fuse. Most likely the key pad has failed and needs to be replaced. On the bright side this is a good problem to have and you have a very reliable car.

SOURCE: how do you replace an alternator on 2001

I would need to know what trim model this car is. If it is an LS or LS Premium it is located on the lower passenger side of the car next to the frame and will require a flywheel holding tool(which is incredibly specialized and chances are you do not have one lying around) you will have to rent this tool from a parts store. You must remove the windshield wiper fluid container out of the way in order to get to the bolts on the top of the alternator. You will also have to remove the passenger side tire and the splashguards in order to get to the bottom of the alternator to remove the bottom bolts, remove the alternator, and place the flywheel holding tool to prevent the camshaft from spinning while you try to pull the alternator. This repair will take nearly a day to do, and also requires a special wrench size for a couple of the bolts besides the flywheel tool. I did it once and swore to myself to never do it again because of how much time and effort it took. If you have a LS or LS Premium just take it to the dealership because this is a hefty task and highly frustrating all at the same time.

All window go up and down except the drivers. hear a clicking from under the dash when i press the button to go up

ok, you can have one of many issues. if you the the auto roll up/down, you probly have a bad switch panal, i.e. the switch block. if your windows are standard power, disconect the plug at the motor. then inject 12v +&- to the motor. if it goes up and down, your issue is a switch or a wire.

A circuit breaker does not blow, it just trips. In the distribution box # 4 is the breaker for the power windows. The power windows have a relay that may be defective especially if you hear no click. On here you can see the procedure for diagnosing the problem.

We have 2005 mercury sable. Horn was not working but you could hear the relay clicking inside the vehicle when pressing the horn button, and the fuse was fine. I found the horn by looking under the vehicle behind the driver side headlamp. Tapped on the horn with a wench and IT WORKED AGAIN!
