Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
Thanks for giving me a start the switch on the passengers door or on the drivers door doesn't work what happen is i went to a carwash rolled the window down after washing the car then it would not go back up i used the button on the drivers door to roll it down when i went to roll it up the light in the switch on the passengers door went out
I imagine u need a new switch, but it could be the motor shorted out too.. If the motor shorted it would normally blow a fuse so you ought to check that first. If the fuse is intact and the switch light is off, its probably the switch broken. Its doesnt take long to test the switch with a voltmeter/Ohmeter.

Do you know about computer controlled power windows ?
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.
