    For g' sake don't replace the GEM module until you self test the system, I doubt it is at fault. Have you self tested the GEM???

No power to windows on 2001 ford explorer sport trac

Power loss to the master switch somewhere. I just fixed mine (97 Ford) by bypassing power source from the ignition switch and replacing it with the one running the mirrors. Works fine.

What is the fuse number for the power windows on a 2001 Ford Explorer?

The power windows are not directly fused, the power for the windows comes from a central control module called the "GEM", when you touch the window button the signal is sent to the GEM and it rolls the window down for you, it is a computer and it controls all the body electrical functions. This module can be tested and will return fault codes for what it finds lacking in the systems it tests, so what must be done now is to have the GEM tested for faults.
