No there is no ground. It is all controlled by the switch. What you want to do is get a Multi meter and set it to 20 Volts. Then hook it up to the 2 wires at motor. It should read around 12 volts when you press switch up and should read -12 Volts when you press switch down. Or Visa versa.. Either way it should change polarity when pressed from up to down. If it is doing this the motor is bad. Try tapping the motor lightly when pushing down button. This will be a for sure sign of a bad motor. Hope this helps ya .. :-)

Reverse light not working on 2009 ford escape


First check the bulbs. To many times I have replaced bulbs. If bulbs are good then you have to go to the neutral safety switch. It on the drivers side of the transmission. You have power in, because other things work. Check power out. Usually a purple or purple/white wire. No power out. Replace the switch. Personally, I would just live with it.

2002 expedition- Driver window suddenly won't


I would recommend removing the door panel to check power to the motor. If you have power when the switch is pressed ,the motor is bad. You will have power on one wire in the up position and power on the other wire in the down position. I hope this helps,good luck

Your power window motor could be bad. Remove the door panel and check for power to the motor. Check for power up and down switch position ,One wire will have power going up,the other wire will have power going down. If you do the motor is bad.

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.

Power window failure on 2002 Ford Escape


I have a 2001 Ford Escape. My driver window doesn't alway roll up when I push the button. As silly as it sounds, when the driver window won't come up, I roll down the front passenger window and then push the buttons for both front windows. The driver window comes up then. I've been doing this for about 6 mos. so eventually it will probably fail. But it is a short time fix.
