Each window has its own little servo motor and the drivers side is usually the one that wears out first. Considering it has done the most work in the past 17 years, it has probably died and gone to heaven. Should be under a hundred dollars to have a new one put in.

SOURCE: My drivers side electric window won't work

Hi Hawkeye1973

The first thing you should do is swap the passenger switch in place of the drivers switch and then see if the window now works. If so then you need a new drivers side switch. It may be clicking but it may not be working.

If it still doesn't work then you need to get your hands on a volt meter and get back to me.

TULL FAMILY
You need to remove the drivers door panel and investigate the window mechanism, it sounds asthough its sticking.

Very best regards

Geordie

SOURCE: 96 ford contour, temp gauge not working

first and foremost check the fuse box. there is a fuse for guages. The temp sensor is somewhere on the manifold and it will have a hard wire with probably a spring around it for protections that runs from the engine to the instrument cluster. You can remove the temp sensor and use a heat gun or propain heat and see if you get any kind of response. I suspect if all your other gauges are working the fuse is good. Most temp sensors do not use power only for lighting of the gauge, It just sends a resistance change to the water temp bulb and it moves the gauge. Is it a seperate gauge or in your insturment cluster? could be simple as a crushed line or the sensor went bad. It is normally self contained. I suspect it is a gauge and not a dummy light? if you can not get the one working in the instrument cluster I suggest going to and autoparts store and replace it which is very easy to do. You can remove the old sensor from the block and reinstall the new on in its place and run the cable back through where the first one was and mount the gauge in another area, It is very important to know the water temp since most computers use this info for setting the correct fuel to air mixture in a closed loop system. That is a diffrent sensor but you need to know the temp yourself to keep from blowing a head gasket or worse which can cause you lots of money to repair, I prefer to mount my own gauge seperate from the cluster, best of luck

Check the fuse panel first, after that check your fuse relays under the hood, if not then it might be a wiring problem.

1996 Mercury Mystique Window


Here are the instructions:
    • Gently remove the door panel of your Contour, ensuring that you don't break the three door clips that hold it on. As you pull the panel from the door, support the panel from below. This will ensure that none of the wiring inside the door is damaged. Release the wiring from the components inside the door, including the power window mechanism, power lock mechanism (if equipped) and the stereo speaker. Place the door panel in a safe area with the clips so they are accessible when you are ready to replace them.
    • 2Remove the window glass by sliding it up and out of the door. Support the glass from the bottom so it doesn't drop and break. Window glass for a Contour can cost around $150 to replace. After you remove the glass, put it in a safe place. You may want to wrap it in old towels or blankets to protect it until you are ready to reinstall it.

    • Unplug the wires from your Contour's window motor, and remove the screws from the window motor and regulator. Remove the power window motor and regulator from your Contour to make way for the new parts.
    • 4Install the new window regulator into the door, and replace the screws that held them in place.
    • 5Replace the window glass into the door, and connect it to your Contour's power window motor and regulator assembly.
    • 6Replace the door panel. Reconnect the wiring for the power window and power lock controls, and replace each clip that connects the panel to the door.

I have 1997 ford contour driver power window will not work at all but all the other window work fine...would it be a switch or fuse problem?


checking fuses is always a good way to start and the cheapest. the switch could be dirty for instance if someone had spilled a coke on it in the past. it could also be the drive motor for the window. since all the others are working this could be a possiblity.

1997 Ford Contour driver side window works intermettently. There is a clicking sound in the relay when you press the button. All other windows work. Tested with a new motor and didn't solve the...


it's the relay.  It's inside the door on the right side.  Remove the door trim and the speaker and it'll most likely be a brown piece of plastic held on with two bolts and retained by a clip.  You should be able to get this part a junkyard for less that 20$.
