SOURCE: Power windows on ford explorer

The main reason for this concern, especially if the door is used quite often and/or the vehicle has higher mileage is a break in the wiring going from the drivers door to the body. If you access this area by pulling the protective rubber back, shine a flashlight on these wires and look for a break (open circuit). look for shiny spots from the open copper wire. The stress from the door opening and closing is what causes the break and often you will find more than one broken wire. It will usually be a heavier gauge wire that doesn't flex as easily. Good luck, if you need more info, please ask.

SOURCE: The electric driver's seat on my 2000 Ford Explorer will not move

the switch has failed or a combination of the switch and motor. the switch will be the easiest to replaace as you will have to remove and on some vehicle partially disassemble the seat to do the motor. The switch os mounted on the plastic panel which is held to the seat usually by 2 - 4 screws.

You need to check the connections at the driver's door switches.
Over time they get mild corrosion on the contact pins and a lot of times unplugging them and plugging them back in will fix it.Smoking actually makes this a very common problem.Not that I'm judging that.
Let me know what happens

You mean that the starter is turning (cranks) the engine but the engine won't start? Be sure it is getting fuel. Turn the key to the on position and you should hear the fuel pump in the fuel tank run for a few seconds. If so that is good. If the fuel is being delivered then possibly you have no spark which usually is the electronic ignition module. The only way to test it is to replace it. Your timing chain or belt could be broken or "jumped" as the third possibility. I am leaning toward ignition module being bad as they just die without warning and nothing can revive them.

98 ford taurus flooded... power locks, windows, seat won't work now


I would expect to find a main wiring connector has some serious corrosion in it.
The fuses for those circuits would be in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
You could try running power direct to the driver's door switch to make the windows come down. Make sure you have a fuse or breaker in the line.

Why does the fuse blow right after i install it?


Have the motors and switches checked; sounds like there's a short that's blowing the fuse.

1997 ford explorer power seats AND power windows wont work after replacing fuse


CHECK YOUR WIRES UNDER THE SEAT WHERE YOU WERE CLEANING, PROBABLY SCRAPED OR CUT A WIRE OR CONNECTION. THAT WOULD SEEM LIKE A GOOD PLACE TO START.

Not likely any reset button. If both seats have stopped working it must be some power problem I would think. There is a control unit under the seats but I think there are two, one for driver and one for passenger. Change the fuse anyway, make sure you have the right one.

My power windows quit working all at once,no warning there was a problem. I have a 2001 Ford Explorer XLS


Have a look at the fuse first The fuse must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. To ease your search for the window fuse, it should be around 30 amps.

My car seat ispushed up all the way to the steer wheel and it want go back and my doors want lock or unlock or the windows want let up or down because my son did somthing but i dont know what he touched to...


Sounds like a Window lock button located on the drivers side control panell as far as the windows goes or a fuse, also the seats work off a fuse and some off of a realy due to amps pulled to move the seats, check the fuse or relay in the fuse box also check to make shure there is nothing blocking the seat from underneath, if blocked it will bind up and cause the fuse to blow.

My drivers seat wont move.


check the track for anything that have gotten stuck in it and then check the fuses and if all good the motor could simply be burned out get a 12volt tester and if the fuses are good test to see if you have power while pushing the button because it could be just a bad switch
