Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
Power window quit working last night. bought a relay switch but didnt work. may have bought wrong part. any hidden fuseboxes i dont know of??? i found 2 but nothing specifically showing power windows
Check the 10 amp fuse for Battery Saver under the dash next to the brake pedal on the left. Just replaced mine and it took care of it. That's only if all 4 windows won't work.

If all these solutions don't work do what i do .. bang the door from the inside under the latch handle a couple of time's with the switch active.. will work ..

Hey I was trying to trouble shoot a power drain and found in my manual a relay under the dash that is called "Battery saver relay". It works the windows and courtesy lights. If it is just one windoe that isnt working it is definately the motor for that window or the switch for it. Hope that helps you!

Mine is doing the same thing...does your window make a clicking noise when you push the switch down? I can't figure out what the problem might be...motor, relay switch or fuse....does anyone have any ideas??

If only one window is not working, loosen the window motor to relieve tension on the gear.
Remove door panel, then locate the 3 access holes for the motor bolts. You will need a 1/4" drive socket set to reach the bolts. Loosen the bolts enough so you can move the motor from the gear on the window bar. If you unbolt the motor completely, it may be difficult to get the bolts back in the proper place. You can use silicone or grease on the bolts to hold it in the socket while you position the motor.
Secure the bolts and test the window before replacing the door panel.

I tried the solution below recommending the 10A fuse replacement. Second fuse blew. Turns out the battery saver relay was bad.

Hi, My 1996 Taurus driver window just wouldn't go up. I undid the door panel and wiggled the wires to the motor and it went right up. But... the transmission just revs now and the car will not go forward. Reverse still works. One dealer repair technician said it was two different things but another different Ford dealer technician said the windows are inline - or connected to the transmission sensor (something like that, I am researching now) and is part of problem.

Still havent fixed mine really sucks when it rains.
mine doesnt make any noise so your one step up on me. yours is probably off the slider in door or its slipping. your motor should be fine if you hear noise.

You must have buy a excact part as they need for poweer windows ,so may be possible that you bought wrong configured relay,so 1 more sugestion to you is you have to buy that relay from your car branded shwroom or service center for exact configuration.
so take care of your car power systems,take time but will solve,
