    Where is this mechanism? It appears to operate on opening of the door not operation of the handle or lock itself. Do I have to access inside the door?

My guess is the door lock mechanism is faulty.if the window control unit does not see a signal for the door being opened it will not raise or lower the window...does the interior light opperate when the door is opened???.if not you can put money on it being the mechanism.

Where is the power window relay located in a 2002 mercury villager?


Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.

How to reset windows


Back windows on my SAAB 9-3 don't rise automatically, never have.
Fronts occasionally needed resetting as usual; run engine, lower each window fully, raise each window manually to full closed - AOK

Manually raise power windows


I don't know of a manual solution apart from dismantling the door, but if the windows don't close by the normal switch there may be an override. Try holding the key turned when locking the driver's door.

When opening or closing drivers door, the window opens 5" instead of usual 1/2" and does not auto close. Also after operating window switch, onetouch or holding, the window lowers or raises and then stops...


what car

electric windows.
can fail for 3reasons
power does not reach the motor.
motor is bad
the guides are seized.

some times, the motor seems good but is weak, bad internal
commutator. (2/3s power)?

use a voltmeter see if 12v reaches motor on demand (push switch)
if that is ok, we have it down to 2 problems in 5min flat.
you could then disconnect the motor, and see if the windown
can be operated by hand, if not , its jammed
if you can , then the motor is bad or weak.

you are now IMPOWERED.
