SOURCE: '00 Ford Explorer - Master window switch won't work rear windows

Without proper electrical diagnostic equipment and based on the very through description that you gave I would suggest getting a new switch. I say a new switch because on the drivers side the switch is one giant junction block. I have the same vehicle and had my door panel off for some locking issues.

I have attached a link to Ford Direct. The part that you are looking for is Window switch, explorer, 4 door, right

sets below the intake manifold and takes about 5 hours to replace even if you are handy with cars it is a big job to take on.after doing over 50 or more for an old recall it still takes me about 2 hours to complete.

at the bottom and top of the switch there are retaining tabs. you can try to pop it out at those points with a flathead screw driver, but it is sometimes easier to just remove the door panel to get it out.

My power window switch stopped working, gas lock, trunk & radio, changed the master switch to no avail, we had bought new window switches awhile back so we know it's not those I need help

Before replacing the master switch , did you check for B+ voltage (power) An ground's at the switch ? There are a couple of fuse's a circuit breaker , a relay (power window relay ) An electronic module ( smart entrance control unit ) in the control of all these thing's you have listed as not working . These are very complex electronic systems . Replacing parts isn't the way to fix them when they fail to work , hooking up a diagnostic tool is the proper way ! Checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's , check data parameters ! Seeing if the control unit is receiving a voltage signal from the switch so it knows when to energize the relay to open the window ,open trunk or the fuel door ! Your best bet would be to take to a qualified repair shop that knows how to diagnose this .

Driver's control for other 3 passenger's window will not work

Do the windows work with their own door switches ?
If so the problem should be in the master switch. A mechanic would check the master switch for power and ground on each circuit.

Grand voyager rear windows not working?

If the master control also is not able to power the window then it is possible that the window drive circuit or the motor is faulty.
You need to remove the window unit to check the motor, use a 12 volt supply to run the motor, now check the switches. If only the door panel switch is working with no remote control from the master control the wiring harness at the hinges can be faulty. Also if there is no power to the unit the wiring must be checked. You can compare the readings from the other working side.
Thank you for using fixya.

Hi,i have lexus rx350 year 2007.the power window control on the driver side doesn't work for the other 3 windows,but all 3 windows can power by passenger side and in the back side. thankyou

I am a little confused about what you are saying here, but I think you are saying that no windows work from the drivers door master window switch except the drivers door window, and that the switchs at each of the three other doors operate the windows ok? Is this correct?

Is there a power window relay or a re-setable breaker on a toyota t-100. I replaced the master power window switch (drivers side) and still have no power. Where would it be located. I checked all...

When you turn the key on the power flow this way
1 to integration relay ( behind fuse box)
2 integration grab power and give to door control ecu (by the driver compartment fuse box)
3 the ecu gets activated and transfer power from POWER FUSE to power window master switch.
4 Master switch does what you command.

You may have blown the Power lock & window fuses when you replaced the master control window switch. Go to fuse box and check for blown fuses. Be sure to replace with same value of fuse.
