Ok, what I meant was is it a live wire. Assuming it is and setting it aside, The other three must be leaving the switch. Hot in and three out for different speeds. The speeds are controlled downstrean on each wire either by resistors or motor design. The fan motor(s) are grounded at their mounting locations. So, touch the hot wire to each of the others one at a time to confirm. Then, turn the switch to low and insert the hot wire into a terminal until the one that that turns the fan on is found. Turn the switch off to confirm control and then turn switch to confirm control of the other two speeds. No need to worry about shorting anything, The ground would be your only fear and it's far remote. Good luck

Puff of smoke from glove box, smell of electrical burning

Check the fan speed position switch and if you have only one speed for the fan or no speeds then look for the fan speed resistors as burnt out.

Replaced the window switch on the drivers door. the drivers window is reversed on the switch. if you pull up on the switch the window goes down and vise versa.

It sounds alot like you may have the wiring plug in backwards. Here is the line of thought. Your switch is a 2 way switch with 2 options up and down. One switch position is on for up and one position is on for down. So what this means is if the wiring is backwards, you are giving the down wires the ON signal when the up switch is pushed and you are giving the up wires ON when down side of the switch is pushed.

I know it is a pain to pull the door apart and test, but the switch does not really know what way is up and down, this is handled by pulsing power to certain wires via the switch. I would advise taking the door apart and checking the positioning of the connector plug into the switch, making sure it is correctly in place.

Please post back if you need anything further or there are any new developments,

-1985 Porsche 911 took off door panels pulled the wires off the power window switches did not label them and now i don't know what color goes to what # connector on the switch

hello there
As you are looking at the switch ,the single connector should be on the top.
Top single conn. is linked with bottom left(red wire)
Bottom right -brown
middle left is blue with black strip
middle right blue with white stripe.
Sometimes this middle wires should be switched(left-right position), the are for window doing up and down.
Same goes for the front switch for pass window.

i hope this helps

My 2002 explorers windows wouldnt go down unless the door was opened. My husband took it apart to see what the problem was and now the windows are stuck in the down position.

It could be a broken wire in the door jamb, check the wiring in the rubber boot in the door jamb, if ok then start checking the switch and the motor

My back windows won't go back up... Is it a fuse?

this might be hard to explain,
since you have the door panels off,you a test light at the window rocker switch,one wire will be hot all the time,probe one of the other wires with the test light and try the switch up and down,one wire will have power when you try the up position and the other will have it only in the down position, if this check shows no power to one side of the switch,your problem is the switch. if you get power to both wires up and down your problem is the motor.

theres two was you can do this. First is to go and get a universal electric fan controler form your local auto parts store there about $30 and the come with instructions its realy easy to do. It will turn the fans on/off only when needed. Second way is to just find the positive and negitive wires fom the fan and hook the positive directly to power with a fuse in line. next hook up a on/off switch inline with the negitive wire fron the fan to one terminal on the switch and then a wire from the other terminal to a good ground. then run the wires thought the fire wall and find a where you want to mount it. the down side is you have to rember to turn on the fan when your driving.
