POWER WINDOWS ON 96 EXPLORER

For some time now the switchs on the drivers side are the only switches that would operate any of the windows. This has been the case for some time now. Now the switches only work intermittent. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for them working or not working. I thought maybe overheating....jarring...shorting out..... somebody said it sounded like the relay switch Like I said the switches work and all windows roll up an down and the they just quit working. please help. FRUSTRATED AND HOT WOMEN ....I HAVE NOT A/C EITHER.....MORE ? ON THAT TO COME.

Check for broken wires in the drivers door hinge area. Ther should be a large rubber tube and inside the wiring for the power windows and power door locks.

The battery got disconected now windows dont work tried re program checked fuses nothing now what


You need to do a window reset. Its in your owners manual

This is a quote from the workshop manual

Note
? A driver side window will not fully close automatically under following the conditions:
? The battery has been disconnected during vehicle maintenance or for other reasons.
? The power window main switch connector, or driver-side power window motor connector has been
disconnected.
? Carry out the following procedure to resume operation:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
2. Press the driver side power window main switch and fully open the driver side window.
3. Pull up the driver side power window main switch to manual-up position to fully close the driver side window,
and keep holding the switch up at the position for about 2 seconds to complete initial setting.

TWO-STEP DOWN FUNCTION OPERATIVE/NON-OPERATIVE SWITCHING PROCEDURE

Note
? By following the procedure below, the two-step down function is switched to non-operative when it is
operative, and to operative when it is non-operative.

Turn the Ignition on
Within 5 sec
perform the auto open two times
perform the auto close two times

turn the ignition off and within 40 seconds and repeat the above sequence.

Repeat for all the windows.

I cant locates side electric window fuse driver


It's position #14 in your dashboard fuse box. It's a 30 Amp circuit breaker, not a fuse. If your other windows work this isn't the problem. The circuit breaker protects ALL the window motors at the same time and will normally reset when it cools off.
If it's the driver side only a little troubleshooting here. Take the door panel off, disconnect the motor connection and see if there's 12v on the power side when you operate the window switch. If 12v is there, the gear set inside the motor is broken (replaceable parts) or the motor itself is shot, If 12v is NOT there my guess would be the switch if the other windows work.

Power windows and driversdoor powerlock will not work. the other 3 doorlocks work. whats wrong?


Probably bad master window switch in driver front door. Your description is vaque. If driver front door switch doesnt operate the other windows, but they all work from each of their switches, than start with the driver front door master switch. May be worth your time to check wiring in door jam before buying the switch.

Wher is the power window relay for 1996 s-10 truck


Your problem is likely in the master switch on the driver side. Try getting a drivers door switch from the junkyard. I have a 96 Silhouette that I experienced the same problem with. After changing out the motor, and the passenger switch I finally traced it to the master switch. Power goes to the drivers door switch first and then over to the passenger door. It could actually be both switches. A bad relay would affect both windows not just the one side.

Both rear windows will not operate from the rear controls, but drivers control will operate them.


Either the window lockout switch is engaged on your driver's side window switch (I believe the switch has a graphic of a window with an X on it) or your master switch (driver's switch panel) is defective.

How do I fix the problem of all 4 power windows


See if you have power coming out of the master power window switch when a button is pushed down. Remove a door panel and check for power at the window motor with the switch pushed. If you do not have power it could be the master switch. Good luck.

Power windows do not work. fuse is fine


If all of the windows do not work and the fuse is fine, the problem is either the window switch on the drivers door or the wire is bad that provides power. Remove the door panel and meter the switch, if you get power to the switch but not through the switch the problem is the switch. If you are not getting power to the switch you know you have a wiring problem.

2002 Ford Explorer, rear driver side door


Wil it work at the door switch or not at either switch? If not make sure you have power and ground to the motor in up and down positions. if so suspect the motor.Also the cable operated regulators break and will not let the window go up or down

My 96 ford explorer power window will not work


TRY CHECKING THE SWITCH. WITH A TEST LIGHT, THERE WILL BE A WIRE THAT IS HOT. WHEN YOU PRESS THE WINDOW BUTTON, SEE IF ONE OF THE OTHER WIRES GET POWER TO IT. IF YOU GET A WIRE THAT LIGHTS UP ON THE BACK OF THE SWITCH WHEN YOU PUSH THE BUTTON, THEN THAT MEANS THE SWITCH IS WORKING AND THE MOTOR NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. IF ONE OF THE OTHER WIRES DON'T GET POWER THEN THE SWITCH IS BAD. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.
