Question about 1990 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I own a 1990 Ford Mustang LX. The drivers window will not function at all. However, the passenger window will, but slowly. What is the recomended fix for this problem? I thought maybe a fuse, but if that was the problem, I believe both windows would not function. Thank you for your response.

Sounds like a bad motor to me and the other one is on it's way out. It does happen over time.
You can find them fairly cheap at a junkyard.
If you take off your door panel you can see them inside the door frame on each door. They are fairly easy to replace yourself. Just make sure that the window is all the way up before you take it off track to put in the new motor so you wont need to re-adjust it after you get the motor in.

I have problem with My 1994 Ford Mustang windows...they need help rolling up and down. When I push switch I can hear the motor run and a friend said he took apart and they are not off track. Also when all...

I have a 1990 Mustang with power windows. When i first got the car the windows rolled up and down fine, then the passenger one started going up slower than the driver one. When i needed to fix my power locks i had them change the window motor in the passenger side. Now the passenger window rolls up faster than the driver one. The problem is the window motors.......and about the motors still running: the switches probably need to be replaced as well. I can almost guarantee this will solve your problem:)

Have a problem with my 1990 Mustang LX 7-up. Passenger door does not unlock. Tried the coat hanger trick but can't get the mechanism to release. Thinking about removing the drivers door panel to look...

Not very easy with the door closed, but call on all your resources, you probably could do it. Some bending maybe needed. You might even consider removing the driver's seat- that would give you lots more room-lol. The whole upper part has to lift up and over the window channel to remove. That is after you get all the screws and plastic push pins unfastened so the panel is free to pull off.

Before you do all that, try rolling the window all the way down and direct some spray down towards the lock cylinder and rod. You might loosen it up to work.
