I would say the motor is bad and will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: rear window of 92 Ford Bronco wont go up or down (power windows)

You need to either replace the motor or get a rebuild kit for the head unit. You remove the motor and take out 2 bolts in the head, use a flat blade screwdriver and hammer the pinched areas to get access to the inside gear. its a nylon gear and has 3 nylon runners inside. yours will prob be in pieces that are mixed with thick grease. best to clean all that out. the rebuild kit is pretty cheap or you can just cut a bolt into 3 similar sizes and drop them in the slots. (just remember the slip action the nylon is a safety feature in case you get your head or arm caught in the window as it closes) the metal pieces make it stronger and more dangerous. Put the head back together, pinch the metal tabs, put it all back on. Same solution will work on the door windows as well.

SOURCE: Have a 1992 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer Tailgate window motor problem

I looked at my schematics, and they don't show a relay. They do, however, show two ground wires coming out of the tailgate window switch. There is a ground wire for the "up" side of the switch, and a ground wire for the "down"side. These would be color-coded black, and I think that it is worth checking to make sure you don't have a corroded /broken ground running from the tailgate switch. If only one grounding wire was broken, the window would operate in only one direction. Both dash and tailgate switches share the same wiring circuit, and these wires are "hot" all the time. It's normal when you get both sides of the motor leads at 12VDC when neither switch is activated. These switches function by switching off one of the two motor leads, and connecting it to ground, thus allowing power to flow thru the motor windings. Of course, reversing the polarity on a DC motor will change the direction of rotation, so changing which black lead is switched to ground gives the up or down direction to the motor.. since you can read schematics, you might check out ebay for a used Haynes manual cheap. hope this helps

SOURCE: #1 - Rear window wont go up. Neiter the key

For the window take the up/down button out of the dash and open it up and clean it. I had the same problem and it works just fine now. The contacts inside the box were corroded with black. I cleaned them up and put it back together and they both work the key and the button. Hope this helps. As far as my parts I go to NAPA or Autozone and whatever they don't have I get from the junkyard if they have any. Parts vary and can come froma variety of trucks and years. 89 F-350 has the same dash, seats, center box and doors as the Bronco.

I just bought a 1996 ford bronco to day and the rear window worked then i tried to open tailgate and now it wont work ? can you help.


This is a pretty common problem, Inspect the wiring in the tailgate jam area ,the wiring takes a lot of abuse ,every time the tailgate is open and closed the wiring inside the( black vinyl tube ) gets flexed back and forth and in time the wiring breaks some times if you open up the vinyl tube and inspect the wires it will appear the wires are ok but if you pull on the wire you'll find that it will actually stretch and all thats holding it together is the vinyl insulator ,also there are switches in the door latches of the rear gate that tell's if the tail gate is closed,if its not closed completely it will not allow the window to work properly hope this gets you in the right direction

Tailgate power window not working


Check to make sure you have battery voltage at tailgate power window, make sure you have a proper ground also. manually run a hot and a ground to the motor to see if it even works, if it does then you know your wires aren't properly connected. If the motor doesn't work then you'll need a new motor and possibly a new regulator, the cost for this would be around $300 or more. Hope this helps you out. Have a nice day! :)

Rear window on my 1987 ford bronco will not work


This has several possiblilitys, it could be the switch in the dash has gone out even if it does not work with the key in the tailgate. other possible item could be the window motor or a sensor that detects if the gate is up or down. check motor wires for power when the switch is activated by pulling off the panel on the tailgate, if it is getting power i would suggest replacing the motor. if not you may have to trace wires to the drivers side of the tail gate and find the sensor.i had to by pass mine a while ago. makes it much easier to clean the glass on the inside cause the window will roll up with the gate down.

My rear window won't operate. Can I manually lower the window? The dash switch nor the outside tailgate switch will operate the window. No blown fuse. What could be the problem?


Have had a few of these broncos, the rear window motor burns out on those pretty frequently. Check to see if you have power to the motor before replacing it but if your fuse is good and its not working then pretty sure it is the motor. There isn't a way to manually crank the window up but you can open the tailgate up to get to the internal components and disconnect the regulator from the glass then you can manually put the glass up and use a wedge of wood to hold the glass up. The proper fix is to replace the window motor.

Tailgate window doesnt work


It could be several things. Make sure the tailgate is latched all the way. The motor could be bad. remove the tailgate cover inside the truck. use a test light and have someone press the up and down button while checking for power at the motor wiring. If you have power going to motor on both sides ,the motor is bad. If you do not have power check for broken wiring or bad switches.

Rearwindow/ door


if there are no broken wires inside the tailgate try lubing the latches with WD40 and open and close the tailgate several times. If the latches are properly closed on both sides the window will not work

Back door wont open and window wont go down


The rear window has to be completely down in order to move the tailgate! You should be happy that your window is stuck up, unlike mine which is stuck all the way down! I have to completly take apart my tailgate!! If you want to try a trick to get the rear window down, my bronco has a rear window switch right next to the headlight knob, take the 2 purple wires on that window switch, and cross them, if your motor still works and if the wires are good, that should make the window go down!!! good luck, hope that helps!
