Question about 2000 Ford Mustang
The push button control operating the driver's side window on my 2000 Mustang Convertible does not actuate the window. I have removed the door panel and can hear a "click" when the button is pressed but the window "motor" doesn't move the window. Because I can hear the "click" at the window motor when the button is pressed I have assumed the motor is faulty. How can I be sure that's the case?
While holding the button in the down position with the key in the "on" position tap on the window motor with a hammer. Or if the window is down, hold the button in the "up" position. If window starts working when you do this there is most likely a bad spot on the armature in the window motor or the brushes in the motor have worn out. Hope this is helpful. Good luck.

The click you hear is probably the relay. if you have a way of checking to make sure that you have voltage at motor that will pretty much tell you what you want to know . if the motor is supplied with power but does not operate, it's bad. you will need a test light or volt ohm meter to test it, but you can make a test light with two pieces of wire and a 12 volt light bulb, might want to get a socket for the bulb so you don't have to try to hold four wires at same time. the window motor is a permanent magnet reversible motor, if you can remove it you can take it to car parts store and they can probably test it by connecting it to 12 volts and seeing if it moves.
