Question about 1991 Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

Power window sticking

The passenger side power window on our 1991 Mercury Cougar is sticking - the motor tries to power it up or down, but it's like something's not catching. I tried to lubricate some of the regulator parts with white lithium grease but it doesn't seem to help. I think there's a part in there that is not engaging well, but it's hard to get to inside the door. Any suggestions?

Power windows on both sides won't work


Have a look at the wire harness where it exits the door and goes into the car. There may be broken wiring there due to flexing of the harness each time the door is opened/closed. You may have to cut the protective cover over the wiring for inspection. If the wiring is ok, you will need to disassemble the door panel and check the motor/s for power and ground supply from the switch assembly to determine if the motor is good or bad.

Could be the switch, the motor, or the regulator. You will need a test light or multimeter to determine where the problem is.

Thank yo for the schematic Ernesto. It says Nissan 1996, so is the 2008 still using the same schematic?


It can be issue with motor itself.If its not going up,then how its working down.But still it feels like weak window motor or is issue with power window switch.Get the voltage tested at switch and motor.Also try another working window motor at not working window side.

In my 1999 mercury cougar the driver side window will not go down. the switch is still working because you can control the passanger side. i dont kno what the problem is, i think it could possibly mean...


Just because the passenger switch works doesn't mean the affected window's switch is good. The best way to diagnos this problem is to remove the door panel, unplug the window motor, and test for power while operating the switch. The panel probably has to come off anyway to replace the switch if it is bad. If you need further assistance please ask. Thanks and please rate.

Electric window 1991 F150 ...351


If the lock is trying to move, like you hear it but nothing really happens, replace the door lock actuator. i believe the windows are on the same fuse. Try removing the interior door trim and tap on the window motor lightly with a small hammer while holding the switch. If the window moves, replace the motor. If not, check for power and ground at the connector. If you have power and ground (which switch when going up then down) then replace the motor. If you dont, repair the circuit.

1993 Mercury Cougar power window, driver side, will not move


It could be one of about 3 things, the switch could be bad, the motor, or the window regulator. Sometimes you can hit the lower part of the door a couple of times wile holding the window switch to check the motor. I don't know how to check the switch but the cable on the regulator can brake and wrap around the motor not allowing it to run. The only way to check this is to take the door pannel off and see if the cable is broke.
