Question about 1997 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

The passenger side window does not work. Is this

The passenger side window does not work. Is this a typcial problem or is the motor just gone out? The power locks work but the window does not work at all. Does not even move. I managed to get a vice grip on it and pulled up while my wife pushed the button but it would still not even budge.

Vice grip? you're lucky you didn't shatter the window.

So only the passenger front window is out based on what you're describing. Or are you trying to say all the passenger windows are out? (you have three passenger windows)

I am going with just the front passenger being out and that neither the switch on the driver's door or the switch on the front passenger door work to control the window. It's rare that both switches would die at the same time, so that rules that out. Now you said you pushed the button and the window does not move, if you don't hear a sound at all, odds are the motor is toast, if you do hear a sound, then the regulator may be stripped or broken.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to remove the motor which will be secured down by a few bolts

If both passengers and drivers side retractable belts have stopped moving, then it's likely the controller that's located under the passengers seat has gone bad. If only one side has stopped retracting and moving then that side motor has probably gone bad.

I have a 1994 Toyota Camry and the power window on the passenger side has gone down, under power. Then nothing would happen when I would pulled up on the switch on the driver side main switch and the also...


more than likely one of the switches are bad (down side of switch works but up side of switch dont) being as the switches are wired together if one goes bad other one won't work either take the switch out one of back doors should be same as front passenger door put rear switch in front passenger door if works then u know front door switch is bad if it doesn't then drivers door switch is bad
u replaced window regulator Did that come with motor too??? if not check to see if motor is good
there is two wires going to motor cut isolation back on wires and using some jumper wires attach one wire to positive terminal of a 12 volt battery attach other wire to negative terminal of battery window should move up or down reverse connections and window should move other way

The motor on the passenger side is shorted and is now tripping the circuit breaker. Odds are, the back window motor is also bad. You have to take the panel off to check the motor. You can power it directly to verify it has failed.

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.

PASSENGER POWER WINDOWS NOT WORKING IN 2001 JEEP CHEROKEE


Hi!

To resolve the issue you are facing with you need to check the following parts—

1. Battery voltage at window switch. If no battery voltage at that switch, check for broken wire between door and body it means the motor of the window has gone bad.

2. If window can be operated by driver switch or individual switch it means window switch has gone bad.

3. If the pin connectors are broken then it means the switch connector of the window has become unserviceable and need replacement. If none of the non-driver switch is working then it is a bad lockout switch.

Please check all the above possibilities and repair/replace whatever is gone bad.
