Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1998 windstar passenger window

It startes to happen that the passenger window sticks up....removing the door panel and smacking the motor gets 2-3 weeks of PERFECT service and then I have to repeat the process...I HAVE OILED EVERYTHING but that doesn't seem to be a long lasting solution....is there a "limiting switch" that could be malfunctioning in the up position ? ..the motor zips the window up and down faster than the drivers side so I don't think it's the motor or the well lubricated track

It sounds like the window regulator could be the proble, that is a very common problem with that particular vehice. the window motor will come with the regulator if you choose to by one.

1999 windstar passenger window won't go up or down


Start by checking the wiring to the door panel for any damage. Then pull the door panel and check for voltage at the switch and at the motor, with the switch depressed. If the voltage is present at the switch and not at the motor, replace the switch, If there is voltage to the motor when the switch is depressed, replace the window regulator. If there is no voltage to the door, the problem is in the wiring prior to the door. Check all plugs and sockets for tightness, possible corrosion or damage.
I hope this helps.

'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.

Need help removing power window motor on 1998 Ford F-150


You drill the head of the rivet out....start with a small bit and work your way up....then pop it out with a blow from a hammer and a screwdriver or punch. Then, if you don't have rivets to replace the removed ones, get a few bolts and nylon threaded nuts and use those to install the new window motor.

My power window came off track


There are 2 screws just above the door handle you need to remove. Remove the plastic trim around door handle. Then starting at bottom of door panel pull out to disengage the push pin clips and work your way up both sides of panel. Then lift up on door panel to disengage the weatherstip on top of panel.

Window does not go down


C5 Corvettes do have problems with windows not working.Most of the time their just stuck.If you take a rubber hammer and smack the bottom of the door a few times while pushing the switch to the down side ,it will release the window and start working.If keeps happening,replace the window motor& regulator.
