You need to pulll the switch out make sure the wires connected to it and test it with voltmeter make sure it is sending and recieving power sounds like the switch went out on you test it before replacing it also check fuses

    None of the switches are working. This is why I wanted to see if there was a common problem that points to a common solution before I take out each switch. The drivers door and front passenger door windows went down but we cannot get them to go up. We will check all the fuses and switches today.

    Ok, found the problem. This is what I was told years ago, most of the time the wires at the hinge are suspect due to the constant flexing of the door opening and closing. Cold weather would play a part in this too as the wires would become brittle. That was the problem. Three wires were broken inside the rubber boot. There is a master shutoff switch at the drivers door which controls all of the windows which would explain why none of the other window switches would work. The main power lead to the switch was one of the broken wires.

I have power but none of the window go up or down


If you have power to the master switch, the switch it self could be bad. Usually the drivers window is the first to quit. the others work. If none are working, the window lock could be set or broken also. Stat with the drivers door window and manually apply power to the window motor. If it works fine replace the master switch

How to locate fuse for 2001 ford taurus drivers side power window


There isn't one. It has a circuit breaker. And the breaker supplies power to all the windows. So if the other windows work, you have a bad motor or regulator or switch.

Driver side window problem ,motor works fine ,have spent about 500.00 at three repair garages,with poor results.window always failed to go down,until yesterday when it failed to go up. this is a2001 ford...


The problem you have maybe down to stressed wiring in the doors hinge area. The rubber boot that protects the wires also hides a multitude of issues. Try examining the wires in this area before you spend any more money on motors that may not be required. A simple bit of soldering and some insulation tape may cure this fault for good.
Hope this helps...

Look at the dome light hit the switch down and watch the light does it dim? It should if it worked to go down now watch the light again to the up position does the light still dim if not you have a bad switch or ground wire in the harness usually its the switch if the light does not dim.

I replaced the master switch and all the fuses are good to the power windows but none of the windows will work


sounds like you have a fuse box that has become separated internally. I would recommend you purchase that from a dealer, as they have a better warranty.

None of the windows work from the drivers side nor the individual doors.


There's another fuse box under the hood...check that....it happened to me right after I got my Taurus.
