This is a pretty common problem, Inspect the wiring in the tailgate jam area ,the wiring takes a lot of abuse ,every time the tailgate is open and closed the wiring inside the( black vinyl tube ) gets flexed back and forth and in time the wiring breaks some times if you open up the vinyl tube and inspect the wires it will appear the wires are ok but if you pull on the wire you'll find that it will actually stretch and all thats holding it together is the vinyl insulator ,also there are switches in the door latches of the rear gate that tell's if the tail gate is closed,if its not closed completely it will not allow the window to work properly hope this gets you in the right direction

Tailgate power window not working


Check to make sure you have battery voltage at tailgate power window, make sure you have a proper ground also. manually run a hot and a ground to the motor to see if it even works, if it does then you know your wires aren't properly connected. If the motor doesn't work then you'll need a new motor and possibly a new regulator, the cost for this would be around $300 or more. Hope this helps you out. Have a nice day! :)

1995 bronco rear windon won't work


You can try replacing the switch on the dash. If its the motor you will have to climb back and take apart some of the rear door to get to the motor. Its just 3 bolts to remove it. once its out you can lower the glass and open the door so its laying flat when you install the new one.
be sure to support the glass when its laying flat and extended ...I use large cardboard boxes under the glass

Bronco rear window was being rolled up with a key when spare tire bracket was closed. It stopped halfway up and now won't move. I suspect the tailgate open switch. Where is this switch?


The electric key switch is next to the key cylinder on the rear door. You can see it easily with the window down and weatherstripping pulled out. The wiring may have become chaffed with the window over the years or the switch corroded in the contact points inside.

Rear Window in 1990 Ford Bronco


you could run a 3 way switch of some kind. but i would try looking in the access panel and finding the safety switch either right on the bottom of the handle or the drivers side tailgate latch. they are known to go bad.you can replace it but i pulled mine out and jumped it with a piece of wire works fine now

Rearwindow/ door


if there are no broken wires inside the tailgate try lubing the latches with WD40 and open and close the tailgate several times. If the latches are properly closed on both sides the window will not work

Back door wont open and window wont go down


The rear window has to be completely down in order to move the tailgate! You should be happy that your window is stuck up, unlike mine which is stuck all the way down! I have to completly take apart my tailgate!! If you want to try a trick to get the rear window down, my bronco has a rear window switch right next to the headlight knob, take the 2 purple wires on that window switch, and cross them, if your motor still works and if the wires are good, that should make the window go down!!! good luck, hope that helps!
