Question about 1996 Ford Mustang
I have a 1997 mustang gt convertible and none of my windows work. I checked the fuse and it is good. The windows also work intermittently when you first turn the battery on. they work for about 1-2 seconds on and off and then stop. while doing this the "door open beep" also works intermittently to the same rhythm. I can try and make a video of what is happening if that helps to explain what is going on. Thanks!

#1 that vehicle has atleast 2 seperate fuse boxes, 1 located under the hood, and the other either under the dash board (driverside) or on the side of the dash board also on the driverside (cant remember which1 for sure, i own the same year explorer but its getting a trans. overhaul at this time, sorry.) anyway, make sure to check both of those areas 1st. i know there is a fuse for all the window motors, but there are relays as well, check those too. I seriously doubt it would be a bad drivers door master switch cluster, but you never know. all in all i would re-check your (owners) manual once more to locate the window fuse(s) and relay(s). If I remember correctly they do have fuse and relay charts in there for sure, just exactly where in that manual I cant remember, but its in an odd spot of the manual from what I recall! I know its not much help, but it should get you started in the right direction. Good luck and let me know if you have any more ?'s.

the window switches in the door can offten go bad just from sticky fingers. some times the are known to just stop working all of a sudden. it is also posible that the motor has gone bad, or more likely a bad conection at the motor or switch. the door switches on the mustangs are not the most sturdy switches. the tend to break loose and move around. u can test the motor by simply runing 12volts the the terminals on it. depending on witch terminal has power and witch has ground determins if the windo goes up or down. also check with volt meter or test light that there is power to the switch, just turn the key on and ground the test light and plug in the terminal that goes to that switch.

Testimonial: "I'm so sorry I didn't leave any feedback till now. I do appreciate all the help you gave me. The problem is fixed and you have my sincere appreciation"
Mine just started doing the exact same thing tonight. I disconnected the battery to change a DPFE sensor and when I reconnected I had this problem. I also have auto headlamps and they are not working either. I don't know what is wrong, I checked all the fuses also and everything looks good. I wonder if it is a relay??? I will make sure I respond to you if I find a solution.
