Switch window master

Explorer 96: I have a problem with the master switch for the windows in the driver's door, when I turn the truck works for a few seconds and then stops working, including the other switch of the 3 remaining doors were left without power, the lock switch continues to operate normally, let me know if you have to relay commands, because you check the fuses are fine and I would like to know if and where is located.

You have a short circuit in the window circuits or a bad motor. They quit working because they are on a circuit breaker instead of a fuse. After the circuit breaker cools down, the windows start working again. You might be able to isolate the problem to a certain door if it only does it when you try to roll down a certain window.

Why do my interior lights flash when i open the driver door only and also my windows have stopped working as well?


Check if all of the windows (except the drivers window) work from the main switch, and from the window switches on each door. If the windows all work from the doors switches, you have a bad master (main) panel controlling the drivers door window. If the windows don't work from any switch, check for a fuse issue, or a pinched wire in the tube from the door hinge area to the door.

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.

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.

Wher is the power window relay for 1996 s-10 truck


Your problem is likely in the master switch on the driver side. Try getting a drivers door switch from the junkyard. I have a 96 Silhouette that I experienced the same problem with. After changing out the motor, and the passenger switch I finally traced it to the master switch. Power goes to the drivers door switch first and then over to the passenger door. It could actually be both switches. A bad relay would affect both windows not just the one side.

All the power windows quit working, the fuse is not blown. i thought it may be motor but, all the windows quit working at the same time.


It's either a master fuse for the whole window system (if your car has that) or it's the switch module on the driver's door. All the window power is routed first to the driver's door, then out to the others. If your master switch on the driver's door dies, you'll lose all the window controls. Check fuses, and if they're OK, replace the driver's door switch panel. Once you do that, you should be fine.

Power windows do not work. fuse is fine


If all of the windows do not work and the fuse is fine, the problem is either the window switch on the drivers door or the wire is bad that provides power. Remove the door panel and meter the switch, if you get power to the switch but not through the switch the problem is the switch. If you are not getting power to the switch you know you have a wiring problem.

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


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
