Driver power window goes down but not up on 1999 Lincoln Town Car

My driver window is about 2/3 open and will not go up. The window will go down so I don't think it's the motor. I believe it most likely is the switch but do not know what I have to do to get to the switch. The service deparment at the dealership told me that normally this would cost about $500 which I think is ridiculous. Can anyone tell me what I have to do to diagnose and repair this myself?

    Is there any grinding noise or does the motor just stop when the window is half way up?...

Possibly the gear on the motor has stripped as a lot of them are just plastic and not made to last as most things these days aren't.
to get to the inside of the door you have to strip the interior door trim off to gain access to the door, then you have to work out how the motor comes out which really isn't too hard if you are a bit mechanically inclined, If you aren't I suggest you pay someone to do it for you as it may be a bit daunting for a novice.
I agree the prices they charge these days are just a rip off but they know if you don't know how to do it you have to pay the price, that is highway robbery in my books.
Good luck

I have a 1999 Lincoln Town Car. All of the windown


If it is the switch, both switches have to be defective, which is not impossible, but very unlikely. If during movement of another window you can distinguish the motor sound, but do no hear anything alike from the left back door's window, it is either the motor, or a loose wire after the switch. Most likely the point of interruption is where the door wires enter the door, due to constant bending there. Finally, if you hear the motor, it is the mechanism which the motor drives.

Power window control


So as not to be repetitive, for the failure of your power driver side window and rear window, review this handy diagnostic article, which identifies the possible causes, from a bad fuse, relay to window motor, etc.:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Windshield_Windows_Window_Does_Not_Roll_Up_Down.htm

This should help narrow down your particular cause.
