Question about 2000 Mercury Mountaineer

Power windows went out

I have a mercury mountaineer, 2002.  all power windows went out overnight. changed out master switch, didn't solve problem.  People on this site are talking about a relay switch under the hood.  I don't find anything listed in my manuel for a fuse or relay switch for the power windows for this car.  Where is this relay switch and what is it labeled as? I've had one mercury dealer tell me the car has a fuse for the power windows and another mercury dealer tell me it doesn't have one.

The power window system operates under the control of the accessory delay relay. For early build vehicles, the GEM will energize the relay to provide power to the power window system. For late build vehicles, the ICM(instrument cluster module) will energize the relay to provide power to the power window system.

Now it does not state the build date cut off in shop manual. So if it is an early build Fuse No.6(60amp) in Battery junction box feeds a circuit breaker that mounts under the hood on the fender apron at the firewall on driver's side(wire colors will be BK/WH and YE/LG).Then it feeds the switch side of the accessory delay relay in the Central junction box. Fuse 17(15amp) in the central junction box feeds the switch side of this relay.

The late build system is the same except instead of the circuit breaker on the left fender apron it uses fuse no. 47(30amp) in the battery junction box.

Now you can go to this website and pick owner guide on left task bar,input your vehicle info and pick get owner guide. Then pick the 6th owner guide printing and go to page 210 for the accessory delay relay location. You will see all the fuse information starts on page 207 thur 216.

2002 mercury mountaineer on e window not working

All the windows are on the same fuse, if the other windows are working fine, it's not a fuse issue. I susppect the motor or the window regulator.
With your ear close to the door panel, press the window switch up and down, if you hear the motor and grinding noises then the window regulator needs to be replaced, if you don't hear anything then the motor is bad OR no power is getting to the motor. either way you will have to take the door panel off and to fix.

My power windows are not working on my 2002 mercury mountaineer. Is there a part that I can get to make it work?

The power window motors on these vehicles have a cable that winds the window up and down. The cable is connected to the window regulator by a peice of plastic. When it breaks it's done. I've already replace 3 on ours. Another great ford design. Be prepared to replace the transmission if you have the v8 awd. Ours along with a lot of other people's went out under 70,000 miles. If you can... get rid of it ASAP!

My 2002 mercury mountaineer window won't go back up. It's stuck. What should I do?

First you should check the fuse for the windows. If the fuse is good you should press the button for the window and listen for a noise. If you hear a noise, then the motor has most likely gone bad and needs to be replaced. If you do not hear any noise, the switch for the window could be bad. If you are mechanically inclined, take the door panel off and use a voltmeter to test and see if power is getting to the motor when you press the switch. If it is not, you need to replace the switch.

2002 mountaineer power windows don't operate

If not in fuse panel at dash, try power distribution center/box under hood, usually near battery. Your owners manual should tell you, if you have it.
