Hi,

I looked through the electrical diagrams of the circuit and came to a theory that you have a broken wire inside of the door wiring harness. The opening and closing of the doors puts a lot of stress on the wires(especially in cold climates). pull the rubber boot back from the door and inspect the wires. i suspect you will find a broken wire or wires.

Let me know once checked.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Do accept the solution, if 100% satisfied from my service!!

All of the power windows in this truck are controlled by a central module called the GEM module (Generic electronic module), this may have failed and most likely is causing the problem, the Ford dealer can quickly run a functional test on this module with a special dealer tool called an NGS scanner, that will give the cause of the fault in the form of a trouble code, if they recommend the GEM be replaced you will need to have the dealer do the job, the new Gem module comes blank and must be programmed, if it is not programmed you will not be able to start your truck.

2004 Ford Explorer power windows doesn't work/checked fuses & breaker are ok


I would suspect the master switch,however you should check inside the rubber boot where the wires go into the drivers door from the body,often a wire will break there due to the drivers door being the most used.

2004 ford explorer ABS light on, cruise control quit working. Problem?


THERE IS A BRAKE PRESSURE SWITCH MOUNTED ON THE MASTER CYLINDER. IF THE ABS LIGHT IS ON AND THE CRUISE CONTROL IS INOP. THE SWITCH OR WIRING TO THE SWITCH IS BAD. THERE SHOULD BE VOLTAGE IN AND OUT OF THE SWITCH IF ONLY POWER IN AND NO POWER OUT THE SWITCH IS BAD. ALSO CHECK FUSE #45 IN THE UNDER HOOD FUSE BOX TO SEE IF ITS GOOD. HOPE THIS HELPS.

All four of my 2004 Ford Explorer windows will not roll down, we changed 1 fuse and just changed the master window switch. Any clue of anything else to check?


this is common, check the wiring going into drivers door, open the door and look for the rubber boot that connects to door and the pillar, look inside the boot thats the wiring to the door , look closely at thee wires and i will bet there will be one or more broken wires. just use the same size wire and a couple of connectors and connect wires back and windows will work again . good day.

Power windows quit replaced fuse under hood replaced fuse inside still have no power windows


#1 so many people make the mistake of pressing the window lock switch on the drivers master window switch, double check to be sure it is not engaged. If that is not the problem you can pop the master switch out with a small flat tipped screw driver & check for power with a test light. If power is going to the switch & the windows still won't work, replace the master switch. good luck

How do I fix the problem of all 4 power windows


See if you have power coming out of the master power window switch when a button is pushed down. Remove a door panel and check for power at the window motor with the switch pushed. If you do not have power it could be the master switch. Good luck.

Power windows do not work. fuse is fine


If all of the windows do not work and the fuse is fine, the problem is either the window switch on the drivers door or the wire is bad that provides power. Remove the door panel and meter the switch, if you get power to the switch but not through the switch the problem is the switch. If you are not getting power to the switch you know you have a wiring problem.
