Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

SOURCE: Rear window defroster
you need to make sure the wires are on the glass on each side and there is no broken wires in the glass there is a repair kit at a auto store to fix if you have a volt meter test it and that way you can find the problem look for breaks in the wire in the glass and do not for get the wires on each side of the glass.

#1 that vehicle has atleast 2 seperate fuse boxes, 1 located under the hood, and the other either under the dash board (driverside) or on the side of the dash board also on the driverside (cant remember which1 for sure, i own the same year explorer but its getting a trans. overhaul at this time, sorry.) anyway, make sure to check both of those areas 1st. i know there is a fuse for all the window motors, but there are relays as well, check those too. I seriously doubt it would be a bad drivers door master switch cluster, but you never know. all in all i would re-check your (owners) manual once more to locate the window fuse(s) and relay(s). If I remember correctly they do have fuse and relay charts in there for sure, just exactly where in that manual I cant remember, but its in an odd spot of the manual from what I recall! I know its not much help, but it should get you started in the right direction. Good luck and let me know if you have any more ?'s.

In spite of your actual problem, you want your window up correct? Take a large rubber hammer and with the key on and the switch being help up rap the flat surface of the bottom of the door several times. I'm certain thwindow will go up. If it does, you'll need a new window regulator motor,or, a complete asembly. If it does not go up you'll have to search your fuses under the hood and inside. Also check the relays by swapping one out with a similar one (shape/ size) and if the car won't start but, the window works you'll know what you need. Thank You, Dana:)
