Check the wires coming from body to door- in the hinge area- sounds like a loose/bad connection or ground

'98 Ford F150, passenger window has suddenly stopped working, cannot roll it down or up with either switch. Thinking it's the window regulator, any other ideas before I run to the parts place?


Could be the power window motor. The 97-03 MY have a case where the motor brushes get too much carbon dust on them, and a good pounding on the tire ( once removed from the door ) will do the trick.

You can download the signal mirror directions from Muth Co to get the door panel off ( obviously stop at the point of removing the mirror head ) .

When you have the door panel off, reach in through the speaker opening to get to the pigtail for the power window motor.

You can test with the motor still in the door with DC power. One direction is up, reverse polarity is down.

If you need to remove the motor, drill the dimple locations to gain access to the heads for the motor bolts.

Unbolt these 3 hex head screws, reach in and twist the motor out of the mount.

Hit is against the tire a few times, and just plug into the harness and test again with the switch.

This is what I did with my old 2001 driver's side power window. Happened 2 more times and went to Napa to get a repalcement motor, had not happened since that time.

Driver side power window does not work. I checked the fuses and replaced one, but still no work.


You will have to check to see if you are getting power from the window switch to the motor. If there is juice feeding the window motor and it wont move, than 100% of the time the window motor will need to be pulled.

Window problem


Might want to check the doors with the problem windows for a broken wire from the door to the door jam.

The window lock switch is a single circuit to all the other windows, so if there was a problem with it, none of the window controls would work ( but the driver's side would still operate them ).

The other place to check for a broken wire is the driver's side door to a-pillar harness. The circuits for the other windows run through the driver's side switch. Could be a wire in the driver's side door harness.

The other item could be the driver's side switch, the contacts will get carbon built up on them, and the windows will not operate anymore.
This is what mine looked like when the driver's side window stopped working ( lower left hand corner of the picture is the driver's side window switch, note the carbon build up on the contacts )

I would start with checking for broken wires, by metering the window switch for power.

The back passenger's window switch should be getting power & ground on the white w/ yellow stripe wire and the tan w/ light blue stripe wire.
in the "at rest" position on the driver's side switch, these are supplying ground to the power window, and power is being applied to the other side of the motor ( depending on direction of travel ).

Passengerside window isn't getting power


We have the same exact problem! we just jiggle the driver's side switch for the passenger window until the window finally goes up. Not the best solution, but it does work eventually, and it hasn't taken more than a minute... yet.

If the lock is trying to move, like you hear it but nothing really happens, replace the door lock actuator. i believe the windows are on the same fuse. Try removing the interior door trim and tap on the window motor lightly with a small hammer while holding the switch. If the window moves, replace the motor. If not, check for power and ground at the connector. If you have power and ground (which switch when going up then down) then replace the motor. If you dont, repair the circuit.

1998 PONTIAC POWER WINDOW PROBLEMS


Double check all your fuses and and wires in connection with your power windows. Unfortunately though pontiacs are notorious for the power window motor regulators to go out, my buddy had 99 firebird and both windows had the same problem, and I previously owned a 98 sunfire and both window motors went out within the same week.
