    The driver's window will only go down in stages (waiting for 5or-so minutes between stages) and then getting it back up is a two person job. one person helps the window up by gently lifting the glass while the other person presses the button. I guess a monkey using three of his limbs could do this otheir own, eh.

Should test the swith first with a test light at the connector to the motor. If that is fine then check the regulator any bent parts can cause this to happen. If there are no bent parts try jumping the motor to see if the window goes up and down. If it still won't go up then the easiest solution is to change out the regulator and motor at the same time, if done seperately it is hard.

Window won't rool up


If it is electric then you may have to replace the window motor, if it is a hand crank window then just take off the door panel and put the belt that goes from the crank to the chases of the window back on track, someone probably kept rolling it after it was already down

My 2000 Ford Windstar is having some electrical issues. I was driving it home and the AC stopped working the radio went dead the odometer went dead my turn signals did not work and I could not roll down...


Check your alternator. My van did something similar. I was driving down the road and all of the sudden my windows, a/c, radio, door locks, speedometer, everything electrical went down. We stopped and tried to crank it and it wouldn't. Then finally it cranked up went another mile before the fuel pump quit working too. It was the alternator. I had to have someone come jump me off and follow me to the parts store and then home for it to be fixed.

Drivers side electric window


if the motor is bad and its not a problem in the wiring, you are gonna have to remove the motor and pull or push the window up by hand, then you need to support the window to keep it from falling down. if the motor bolts in you can bolt it back in to keep it up. if not you can sometimes use a heavy duty zip tie around the track arms to hold it up. i would not recommend the duct tape i see a lot of people use. but thats your call. hope this was helpful.

Power window comes up intermittently


I had the same problem. It was a bent rod on the regulator, which burned out the motor. Easiest way is to switch out the whole assembly, the motor and the regulator. Mine is working just fine now. I am a female and was able to switch it out just fine i just had to have someone else hold the window in the right positions to get to the bolts on the window.
