Response to answer

Thank you s60six
How do I go about running 12v power to the motor? If it is the motor like you have suggested, how do you get to it through the door? In your experience are they expensive?
Thank you again for your help.

it can only be 3 things.
1: no power to motor (12v not there active or is too low)
2: bad motor. 12v there its dead.
3: jammed up track overloading said motor.
a voltmeter solves #1 and 2 in seconds.

Is there a fuse for power windows?

According with the Ford Owners Manual (page 226 and next) I suggest to check the next locations:
- Battery Junction Box fuse # 6-60AMP will feed Central Junction Box ( under driver side)
- the inline circuit breaker #47-30AMP, through the Accessory Delay Relay, powered by fuse #17-15AMP to the Window Control Circuit.

Check the fuses, and for 12v at the points. Then check for 12v at the driver side door switch pannel.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day

Im in the process of wiring an air horn to my 2008 dodge caliber se. ive used the existing power feed and earthed the horn via an additional wire to an earth point. the horn works fine whilst the engine...

check your ground and clean it , also check your power source you may have 12v but not enough amps to make it work if you are using the standard horn power trying to run an airhorn motor may not be enough but most likely would be a ground problem

Fan switch stopped working 1 mth after replacing the resistor

1) Check for +12v power from the fan select switch at the resistor pack - (If +12v is available there you may again have a faulty resistor pack).
2) Apply +12v directly to the fan motor to check that it runs ok.

Just replace the motor in my 96 ford mustang....the passenger side is working properly, but driver side....still nothing. Any suggestions?

Check for +12V at the master switch.
You may have a corroded or pinched door-jamb wire.
If there is not 12V, check your fusebox relays.
CLICK HERE for an owners manual in PDF format, and there is a fusebox layout in the ROADSIDE EMERGENCIES section starting on PDF page 274. IT is a circuit breaker in position 14.

Power windows

Remove the front door trim panel.
2. Disconnect the 2P connector from the motor.
Connect the motor terminals directly to battery voltage (12V) and check that the motor operates smoothly.
Next, reverse the polarity and check that the motor operates smoothly in the reverse direction.
If the operation is abnormal, replace the motor.
