'00 Ford Explorer - Master window switch won't work rear windows

2000 Ford Explorer.  Master window switch "was" working the front two and the left rear windows.  But not the right rear.  Also, the right rear switch wouldn't work the right rear window.
I played around with it.  Took off the panel on the right rear to make sure everything was plugged in ok.  Went back to the master switches.  Turned the window lock button on and off.  Now...the master switch will only work with the front two windows, but neither of the rear windows.  Also, the rear windows switch now control their individual windows.  In fact, all switches work their respective windows.
Bottom line...the master switch does not work both rear windows.  I can't make this stuff up.
Any thoughts?  Do I need a replacement master switch?  Thanks in advance for any help.

Without proper electrical diagnostic equipment and based on the very through description that you gave I would suggest getting a new switch. I say a new switch because on the drivers side the switch is one giant junction block. I have the same vehicle and had my door panel off for some locking issues.

I have attached a link to Ford Direct. The part that you are looking for is Window switch, explorer, 4 door, right

Only the drivers window works, first it was the real ones and now the pass. won't work at the door switch


Could be individual switches or the rear may have child safety locks on them--the clue will be usually you cannot open rear doors from inside the vehicle---it (the child locks) will in many cases stop rear windows from working----consult the owner manual or look at inside of rear doors for the slide switch at each door under and near the rear of the armrest.

Windows won`t go up or down


Power windows usually use a circuit breaker (in the under dash fuse panel) rather than fuses or relays.
If no windows work, check for broken wires in the driver's door opening, going to the master switch on the driver's door. Or pull the master switch out and check for a hot wire there with key on. You can also check the ground there too for the windows. The ground for the windows will start at the master switch and go back inside the car, possibly grounding at the left kick panel.

2000 Chevy Blazer Power windows work from drivers


Are you sure the side window lockout switch located on the drivers master switch isn't on? This will kill power to the other three switches.

If your sure its not on than the I would pull the left rear window switch. There will be two dark blue wires one of them should have power all the time. If neither have power than I would pull the drivers master switch and see if there is power at the dark green wires (one will only have power with the left rear window switch in the up position.

If those are good than check the dark blue wires. one will only have power with the drivers front window switch in the up position. the other should have power all the time. If there is power there than you have a broken wire somewhere. The first place I would look is in the rubber boot in between the drivers door and the body of the vehicle.

If there is no power that the switch is bad.

Power windows and driversdoor powerlock will not work. the other 3 doorlocks work. whats wrong?


Probably bad master window switch in driver front door. Your description is vaque. If driver front door switch doesnt operate the other windows, but they all work from each of their switches, than start with the driver front door master switch. May be worth your time to check wiring in door jam before buying the switch.
