SOURCE: Power running board is stuck will not open all the way.

I had the same problem last week, I took it to the dealer because it was still under warranty. He said it is due to a part that is commonly corroded and needs replacing. I am waiting on the part now. Not sure what it is but I can post when I find out. I am in Wisconsin, so the running boards take a lot of abuse in the winter

SOURCE: Power running board failure

This is not really solving the problem, but my dealer told me that they could unplug the harness to keep the running boards in the down postion. The running boards have to be in the down position to make this happen.

SOURCE: 2006 mercury mountaineer interior lights will not shut off

There is some problem with the door switch(s) which should turn the lights off when the door is closed. Look closely at the switch and make sure that the proper contact is being made within the switch. There could be corrosion.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 mountaineer with power running boards

If you have a information menu in the dash, besides all of the gas mileage and trip functions- there is another menu.
On this menu you are able to set the horn to chirp when setting the alarm, park assist for the mirrors and so forth. One of the functions should be the on/off for the running boards. We had a Lincoln Aviator without running boards, but I believe I read about it in the owners manual. The setting was probably lost when you changed the battery.

All power windows won't work, but you can hear the motors working.

Take off the interior door panel and look to see what is moving and what is not. It is extremely unusual for the motor to run and not open/close ALL four windows.

2002 mercury mountaineer on e window not working

All the windows are on the same fuse, if the other windows are working fine, it's not a fuse issue. I susppect the motor or the window regulator.
With your ear close to the door panel, press the window switch up and down, if you hear the motor and grinding noises then the window regulator needs to be replaced, if you don't hear anything then the motor is bad OR no power is getting to the motor. either way you will have to take the door panel off and to fix.

Power windows do not roll up or down it is not the power swicth new installed and it is not the power motors.

Is there Power to the switch? to the Motor? If so can you hear the motor start to move? If you do hear or feel it start it is more then likely the Window Regulator.....
