Rear Window in 1990 Ford Bronco

The window motor has been replaced as well as the switch on the dash. The dianosis for the problem they said the switch that works the tailgate is bad and you can buys those anymore. They said that something in the tailgate stays on through that switch causing the motor to burn up. Can I run a toggle switch from the window motor to the battery and just bypass all that?

You could run a 3 way switch of some kind. but i would try looking in the access panel and finding the safety switch either right on the bottom of the handle or the drivers side tailgate latch. they are known to go bad.you can replace it but i pulled mine out and jumped it with a piece of wire works fine now

SOURCE: The key switch on my 1990 Suburban tailgate window won't work

Remove the back panel on the rear tailgate, should be some screws then pop off. From there you will be able to see the switch and see if you can operate it manually by using a screw driver and hitting the switch if not then replace it. Located next to the key lock

SOURCE: replace motor on tailgate window on a 1987 ford bronco

You will likely have to remove the panel from the inside with the window up. Once you have the panel off I would try to have some one hold down on the switch while you tap the motor with a hammer. Of course make sure the latches are all the way closed as if the door is not closed all the way the window will not roll down as it has safety switches to keep this from happening.

If you still can not get it down then you will need to unbolt the regulator and let it down that way.

SOURCE: 91 4 runner tailgate, window wont open

No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: 1995 bronco rear windon won't work

You can try replacing the switch on the dash. If its the motor you will have to climb back and take apart some of the rear door to get to the motor. Its just 3 bolts to remove it. once its out you can lower the glass and open the door so its laying flat when you install the new one.
be sure to support the glass when its laying flat and extended ...I use large cardboard boxes under the glass

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.

My '90 rear window motor works, but the window will not go up or down


ford window motors have nylon bearings to work the drive gear, and the crumble. check and see if drive gear turns by motor with a load on it. if not, either rebuild drive or replace motor assembly.

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.

My 1990 ford bronco rear window will not go up all the way. it goes down fine but when it starts to roll up it stops halfway up.


Your window fuse, relay or motor may be dying and no longer powerful enough to close your window all the way up. So as not to be repetitive, for the failure of your power driver side window and rear window, review this handy diagnostic article, which identifies the possible causes, from a bad fuse, relay to window motor, etc.:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Windshield_Windows_Window_Does_Not_Roll_Up_Down.htm

This should help narrow down your particular cause.
