    I have a similar problem - the window quit working on the driver side and I had it replaced - it worked for about 3months and then it just quit again. I also here it "clicking" when I press to roll it down - but again, it doesn't work therefor, it doesn't roll down. Going to have it fixed, AGAIN, and hopefully it will work for good this time.

    2000 Windstar. Relay clicks but window not operating.

    Happened once before but window "magically" started working on it's own and did so for 2 months.

    No magic this time, still just the relay is clicking.

    Sprayed contact cleaner in the switch assembly to no avail.

    THe exact same thing happened to my 2002 windstar. THe window on the passenger side stopped working, I had it replaced and 4 months later it doesnt work again. The mechanism still makes the noise like it will open and close window, but nothing happens. I have to manually open window by pushing glass up and down.Very annoying!!

    I have the same problem- None of the windows will roll down on my 2001 Ford Winstar. When I press the up/down button for the driver window I hear a click from a relay under the dash. All the fuses checked good in the fuse panel. Any suggestions?

Well all this depends on what the extent of the damage was done when it was broken into I can not tell u what that was because i can not see it. AS far as a spike in the alarm i doubt it the auto insurance guys usually know about cars and how they work so i doubt u will get anything from that. Now if the guys that broke in tried to start the car and cut wire s and so on then i would say yes.I live in the Atlanta area I would be glad to look at it for u.

Automatic windows

the click you are hearing is the relay for the window motor. if it wont go up or down it is most likely the window motor that has gone bad and needs replaced.

I have a 1995 ford windstar. The driver side power window stopped working in the up position. When I depress the switch to lower the window, I hear a clicking noise like a relay coming from under the dash...

The clicking noise doesn't mean anything , relay controls one touch down . Just means relay is probably working ! Take the door panel off an check power to the switch , motor . Watch this videos . Test the electrical circuit The Trainer 24 Power Window Troubleshooting
Automotive Electric Window and Switch Troubleshooting Repair Guide

The motor or the switch or the regulator or maybe be a wiring problem .

Driver side window does not go up and down easy at first, sometimes will not move at all until you nudge it, clicking noise under dashboard

sounds like you might need a window motor. if the window goes up and down with help the motor is weak. the clicking is more than likely the relay

2001 ford f150 drivers side window does not work , clicking sound

Listen real close under dash when trying other windows, and see if you don't hear faint click with them too. I'm guessing your driver side motor is tired, but perhaps a little lube and some coaching, it will come back again, otherwise door panel will have to come off to try a few things, or replace motor. It's the one that gets most used, so is most likely to give out first.

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
