Do any windows work, under any circumstances?
I had a problem where my passengers could not control their windows, but I could control them from the driver's door controls; and it turns out it was a bad battery. Apparently the Taurus computer tests the battery voltage while the car is being started, and if the voltage is too low the computer begins disabling accessories, like the power windows. (But it doesn't alert you, say, by turing on the Check Engine light.) It also was affecting the remote control (key fob) operation, which is also fixed now.

So apparently if your battery ever falls below 10.0V, the computer freaks out and goes into "limp-home" mode, and begins shutting accessories off.

So check your battery with a voltmeter; if it's below 11.0V in the morning with the engine off, or below 10.0V while cranking the engine, I'd try getting a new battery.

    I have a new battery and they still aren't working. The driver side did enough that it is all the way down now, but won't go up. I have put in a new switch on the drivers side, I have checked fuses and replaced one bad one (didn't help). I haven't checked the window motor because of all windows being affected. Could it be a relay, and if so, where would I find this? Thanks!

Driver power window operation

I would go through and check all fuses and relays, i have seen strange things like this happening before. Though, if you can hear the relay and the motor is in working order then chances are the fuses are good. I would also check the door jam where the harness goes through, make sure nothing is pinched or worn through. The way i would diagnose the problem: with the door panels removed and the switches hooked up, toggle the switches for the front and rear door to see if the motors are trying to turn and its not window gears that are jammed. then i would unplug the switch to test the leads to make sure its getting power. then, test the output for the switch to make sure its sending power. then got to the motor and test to see if it is receiving the pulse. also, unplug the connectors and clean all the leads and apply some dialectic grease corrosion can cause this issue...

New power window switch is not working, don't know where fuse/relay is located

usually the power windows in on a circut breaker fuse. if it blows it resets its self after cooling down. use a test light to see if you have power on any of the wires on the back of the switch. if you have power chances are you have a bad motor for the window. asuming that you replaced the front drivers side switch. if that wasn't the one you replaced say the back pass side switch odds are its the drivers side front set of switches bad. hope this helps you.

My '02 Ford Taurus SES windows won't roll down

Power windows are wired through their own relay which is usually located in the fuse box. If you don't have faulty switches in your window system I would have the relay checked out.

If you cannot operate any of the power windows and you lost power on all at the one time it is most unlikely that the motors are faulty.

Power door locks and windows stopped working. also, wipers and automatic lights do not work. airbag light is also flashing. all the fuses are good. Help!

take the drivers front wheel off and take the splash shield down. towards the upper rear of the wheel well there is a bunch of wires running through a plastic run that double back at the end of it. wires tend to rub through at that switch back and cause a lot of the key-on accessories to stop working. this problem is common on 97 to 02 Taurus/Sable vehicles.

04 taurus Power Windows, passanger side goes down, not up, new mo

It is most likely the switch itself. since the down works that means that there is power going to the switch. So, the up position switch is probably worn out.

My passenger front window rolled down now it will not go back up do not hear any sound from the motor in the door trying to check the fuse but i do not know which fuse it is i know where my fuse block is...

Does the switch work the other windows? if not the switch is broken. Although it may just be the window in question with a faulty switch
If the motor was broken theres usually (not always) noise involved.
Pry out the switch and use an electric meter to test it.
The fuse will normally control more than 1 window, so if its blown, they will all not work.
be careful trying to raise the glass again.
Hope that helps.
