A Chilton's manual will show you how to take the door panel off, but here's the overview:
1. Remove screw inside the door handle.
2. Remove the speaker cover (2 screws).
3. Use a trim tool or small flat prybar to pull out the plastic pushpins all the way around the door (about 12). They can be reused once, but after that they tend to fall apart. A box of them is pretty cheap at Fastenal or some car parts / car stereo stores.
4. Lift the door panel up and out, then disconnect the wiring harness.

There's your switch. But if all your power windows aren't working, then the switches are probably fine, and you might want to replace your battery instead.

I had a problem with my 97 Taurus 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.

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 2002 ford Taurus & the drivers side


There is no way to ever know what a vehicle
repair would cost & only a fool would quote
a price without first diagnosing the issues AFTER
they have things apart
The last shop let you down
Most window problems are a broken window regulator
Could be the switch was worn & was replaced,the relay
if there even is one & windows seldom have a relay,they just
have a circuit breaker for the motor.
The regulator was going & they failed to remove the door panel
to check it

No heat in my 2002 ford taurus. Replaced heater core 3 years ago, replaced termastat and flushed radiator today. Could the switch be bad that I use to go from hot to cold??


It could be the switch, or the actuator that opens the climate control blend doors. The 02 Taurus had problems with this part. A new remodeled part is now available from Ford.
Part# 3F1Z-19D842-AA I hope this helps.

My 2002 ford taurus power window fuse always blown


constant and instant blowing fuse is a short circuit. if man-handling and manipulating the wiring harness as it comes thru the frame to the door doesn't make any difference, it's almost always a bad window regulator/motor assembly inside the door cavity behind the panel, but can be the (a) switch as well. remove the door handle or perhaps an access panel to gain access to the wiring harness. unplug the switches and pigtail connector to the regulator/motor. replace fuse and turn key on. if short is inside the door the fuse won't blow. reconnect one connector (or switch) at a time to isolate shorted component or wire. replace bad component or repair wire.

Windows have stopped working


First check the fuses if you have not done so. You will need to remove the door panel to get to the driver side window switch, the power for all of the windows enters through the driver side switch. Use a multi meter to determine if power is reaching the switch, if it is not, run a temporary wire from the fuse panel to the switch and see if that will work the windows. If it now works you know the problem is a bad wire. If you are getting power to the switch but not power out the other side you know the switch is bad and must be replaced.

Back windows are not rolling down


Rear windows on my 2002 Taurus stopped working. Fuse OK. Problem is only with the rear windows. Started as an intermittent problem on one window and now neither rear window works.
