2006 taurus windows wont work

I took my 2006 taurus to the dealer with a problem with my windshield motor (i thought) based on a diagnosis from a local repair shop. We thought it might be covered under a recall. The dealer charged $89.00 and stated that it was not the motor but the multifunction switch and was going to charge $400.00 to repair. I declined and took it back to the 1st shop who only was going to charge $40 to install and $80 for the switch. I got a call from the shop saying that ater replacing the switch the motor still did not work but he could replace it for $250.00. I agreed and upon picking up my car I learned that he replaced 5 relays and did not replace the motor and charged me $160.00. I paid for the service and now none of my windows will go up or down. I would like to know what I can do to stop being taken advantage of by the shops.

Does a 2006 ford taurus have a fuse for the power windows? ,y windows wont go up or down

Yes the power window fuse is in the fuse panel. If you are having problems with all the windows then it is a switch problem. If it is one window then it sounds like a window motor problem

2006 RANGE ROVER Around 60-70 mph the car is making a noise that sounds like wind or a loud humming noise which i thought maybe a wheel bearing going bad , I took it into a garage and they said it was...

Yes, common problem the plastic cowl at the base of the windshield warps and the resultant air turbulence caused makes a howling noise especially in the 55-65 speed range. Most dealers will just tack the cowl with silicone adhesive at the area that is warped. Just look for an area where the black plastic cowl is not tight against the base of the windshield. Do not buy a new cowl as it will warp again causing the same problem to recur.

I have a 2006 dodge magnum and the windshield wipers stopped working about a year ago. i have changed the fuse and still no response. shouldnt this be a recall?

It is only a recall when the problem has consistently been a problem across all magnums, or all dodge vehicle that have the same wiper motor. Generally unless there is a huge problem and there is a large outcry for replacement, companies do not recall items unless they post a safety hazard. Check with your dodge dealer and they should be able to tell you about any available recalls based on your vehicles vin number. Other than that it sounds like you need to purchase a new windshield wiper motor.
