Question about Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I have a '93 Explorer XLT. Recently, the window on the rear right door simply dropped down without warning. The motor still hums and appears to be working. A friend and I removed the door panel and found a cable of some sort that should be attached someplace. We removed the door panel from the opposite door to try to determine where this cable is supposed to be attached. We were able to trace where the cable goes, but it is inaccessable enough that we couldn't feel the attchment point and could not see it. Any ideas on how to proceed and where we can find an assembly diagram? Thanks in advance for your help. Chip

    I had the same problem with a 2001 Focus. I didn't see it but my son said it looked like some kind of cable birdsnest in the bottom of the door. He couldn't fix it so he fixed the window in the up position and I will have to have it repaired. Defnitely is not the motor not touching anythin. Joe

Put some silicone spray or dry lube in the window frame where the glass runs and this will free up the window and take the load off the motor.

Se me kedaron las llaves dentro de mi explorer 2004 tiene botones en las puertas cual es la clave


I'm not completely sure I understand the question, but here's my best guess!

Open the right/rear door. Pull the body weatherstrip back a little. Fold down the right/rear seat back. Pull the panel where the right/rear seat belt anchors to the top, with the sliding height adjuster. Pull back the lower panel just until you can see the Vehicle Security Module with the three electrical connectors colored green, blue, and grey. There is a label with the number 5L2T-15K602-EA. You will also see FIVE numbers. That is your five digit keypad entry code.

I have a 2003 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4 and the passenger side window will go down but not up. Tried to pull it up by hand but to no avail. Is there an easy way to fix this without taking the whole door...


could be just a bad switch drivers switch or passengers switch test or replace both switches

if switch test good than the window motor is probably bad has enough power to bring window down but not up and for that u will need to take of door panel

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT. The problem I'm having is that my Driver side window went down and now won't go back up. The wiring in the door was broken and I fixed that problem, all the other windows...


Take a test light to the motor connector and probe both wires and see if you have power on both sides. First press the botton up if power press down. if you have power than your window motor is bad or your elect repair is bad.leave comment.

My 1998 Explorer (4 door XLT) has the driver side window stuck in the down position. All other power windows work and I am getting power at the switch to take window down but no power to roll up. Any ideas...


Yes, we had both motors fail on the drivers side front and rear windows.
If you disconnect the motor from the switch you can test the terminals on the switch. If both sets of terminals are hot the motor should go both directions. If only 1 set is hot, most likely it is the switch. You can try to jump the motor from the working side of the switch and see if the motor will now go up. If it does go up, then the switch was bad.
Or you can verify by using a primary power source in the door wiring or fuse panel and bypass the switch.

If the motor does not work right and you are handy, you may be able to resolder the connections and fix the motor.

There is a little plastic type of bracket that the glass for this window is mounted on to, its probably broken and the window fell off the track. Therefor the motoring working but can't roll the window up. You make nedd the complete window regulator assembly. Good Luck

You have an electric window right? if so the motor brushes are most likely stuck ( common concern), try hitting the bottom front of door panel with palm of your hand while holding the switch to down or up, if the window springs to life the motor is defective, in any event you need to pull the door panel and test the motor for 12 volt signal to one of the terminals, 12 volt signal will reverse on the connector depending which direction the switch is held to operate the window. If the 12 volts is prsent replace the motor, I wopuld recommend rockauto web site for best price.
