My first thought is the inertia switch in the trunk, but that is only for the fuel pump.
If you have no electrical power, something happened with the wiring under the hood.

SOURCE: 93 mustang car door doesn't

Sounds like the door may be out of adjustment. Check first that there nothing is getting in the way of the door closing area such as the seat belt, and that the door seals are in the correct position. If all checks ok there, Then the door striker witch located at the "B" pillar ( body area direct behind door ) needs adjustment. I recommend finding someone with experience doing this as it will require the use of a impact driver to loosen the adjuster But if you have access to this tool then MARKING where the adjuster is before adjustment is a good idea as a starting point of reference. The adjuster need only be slightly loosened to adjust and will move not only in and out but up and down. good luck and have a happy holiday season Kam

this may sound stupid but its only a temporary fix. take the panel off the door and tap the window motor with a small hammer. do all the other windows work? does it make any sound when you hit the button? you probably end up having to replace the window motor.

Wil it work at the door switch or not at either switch? If not make sure you have power and ground to the motor in up and down positions. if so suspect the motor.Also the cable operated regulators break and will not let the window go up or down

Will not start

Check the inertia switch. It's supposed to cutoff fuel if you are in an accident but they can be flaky. I've seen them pop if you bump a parking curb or hit a bump in the road but not go off when a Mustang was rear-ended by a SUV at 40 mph. The switch is in the trunk, right behind the driver's side tail light. There should be an access hole through the carpeted cover that goes across the back of the trunk. If the red button on top of the switch is popped up, push it down until it clicks.

Car stalls while driving.. starts right up but shuts off i start it hit the gas and engine tries to rev up but hesites alot then shuts off

Ford vehicles have an auto shut-down switch. The switch is in the trunk. If a Ford is hit with enough force or if the car rolls over in an accident, the switch is triggered and it shuts off the vehicle. This is to prevent fuel from continuing to flow to the engine, possibly causing a fire. If you were hit in the rear and the car will not start, look for the shut-down switch in the trunk. It is usually on the driver's side under the carpet.

965 Ford Mustang 2+2 fastback. I noticed a hose hanging rear

The hose is likely the differential vent hose. If you get under there and take a look around the rear end you will likely see where it was originally secured.

Installed a new ignition in my 1995 ford mustang gt as well as a new ignition switch my car still wont start. aslo installed a new starter, coil, plugs, wires, battery, fuel pump, and fuel filter still...

check the rear of your trunk driver side like if your going to change rear brake light do you have a gas override switch wich starts the gas pump its a restart button you have to remove the panel as if your going to take off tail light on driver side rear its an emergency shut off.

I can't find the reset button for my 1993 Ford Mustang Hatchback. Everything says trunk but I am coming up empty. I found the shut off switch under the hood.

directly behind the driver - at the rear of the car - - open the back hatch - remove the panel that is at the back of the car - it is 3 pieces - remove the center one - then the left side from where u stand - it is a small black box attacked to the read panel of the body itself - there is a small red button in the center of the black box - it may not be tripped - if u want to trip it - hit it with ur hand - then reset it -
also ask the dealer about any recalls
