Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 2001 f350 crew cab developed an issue with the power windows. It first started with the rear windows only rolling down and not up unless i used the master switch. Now one does not work at all from its respective switch. The passenger window is now stuck down and will not roll up. The motor does turn it down, but nothing for up. The driver window is fine. I cannot find any damaged/broken wires or fuses. And i believe all motors and switches are good. What could it be?

I would remove all door panels

Unplug & test each window motor,
powered directly to the battery, in
both directions

That way you know if all the motors work,
if all regulators work

You say you believe the motors & switches are good

No you don't & you should have tested them before you told us

Now for the switches--you will need wiring diagrams, regardless
of whether you do live voltage drop testing or ohm the switches
out of the circuits (unplugged)

You need battery voltage to all your power points at the switches

You need-- when all that is done & your still at a lose for no reason
you can think of,have to look at scan tool data in enhanced mode
& check for GEM Module Codes & more (all the motors & windows
& switches are working properly-- powered direct from the battery-
basically problem solved)

Until you have all motors,all regulators & all switches working,
by power you bring (yes) on two long wires from the battery,
you can not fault the GEM ( body module) the windows are
controlled by

SOURCE: right window will not roll down..

I have had to fix three out of four windows in the past month.of my 2004 jeep grand cherokee. I went from a semi cold environment to a really hot environment. I was told by Jeep, after the third time of course, that the wires had more play in the hot environment and had shorted out because jeep did not put correct housing over the wires next to the door. If you have the same problem put electrical tape around your working electric windows so it does not happen to your good windows.

SOURCE: Ford F350 Crew Cab Power Window Problem

Did you check for power at the switches. Are you sure the fuses are ok. Sometimes the wires break because of opening the door. You will have to inspect the harness and maybe have to remove the door panel. Most likely its a driver door wiring issue or the fuse.
