Have you removed the drivers side door panel and checked the wiring harness to see if it is loose or if there is any wires shorting out? If the locks works from the passenger side but not the drivers side you can rule out any fuses or relays. The lock is apparently not getting voltage from the drivers side wiring harness, and in all likelihood you have a loose connector at the controls inside the door panel. Check that first and see if that doesn't solve your problem.
The door panel will have to come off. check for a bad motor or wiring to motor, or a bad drivers side switch. check the fuses first! and is the drivers side window locked on drivers side, just push the unlock window from the master controls on drivers side to see if it works. on my car, the drivers side window would not work. I accidentally hit the window lock with my arm. God-Bless!
All Of The Window Controls Are Controlled By The Master Switch, Which Is The Drivers Window/Door Lock Control Assembly In The Door. Sometimes A Removal Of The Control Assembly And A Through Cleaning Can Bring It Back To Life. More Specifically The Window Lock Button. This Is Why The Other Windows Have Stopped Working At The Door But The Drivers Control Still Operated All The Doors Just Fine. Next To Go Bad Is The Auto Down Function. basically The Inner workings Of The Switches Are Gunked Up. Take the Driver Side Door Panel Off, Remove The Door Lock Assembly From The Panel. It Can Come Apart, But It's A Three Hands Kind Of Thing. The Buttons Pry Off, But Be Careful They Will Fly Across The Room. Once You Open The assembly wipe Everything Down With Some Cleaner, I Used A rag And carb Cleaner. I Did This And It Worked For A Couple Of Months. It Was Much Easier To Order A New One From Rock Auto.Com, It's Plug In Easy. 1.5 Hours If You've Never Taken The Door Panel Off Just Because You Have To Be Patient. My Replacement Been Working Great For 2+ Years. Cost ~ $60.
Sorry For The Weird Caps, Phone Reply.
The windows and power locks are controlled through a central computer module called the Generic electronic module, you must have this module scanned by the dealer (or a well equipped shop with a Ford compatible scanner) to see what is wrong with the system.
My mechanic took out the panel on the driver side control because my right rear passenger window would not work after disconnecting the battery (but the control on the passenger rear door works) and when he put it back, it worked..it's possible it's just a loose wiring connection. My car is a 2006 Lexus RX330 with 58K miles on it.
There's a 50 amp fuse in box under hood. Could be the problem as far as I can tell there are no fuses in car. Check all connections. This just happened to my car. I tried using my passenger side panel an drivers side and drivers side window starting working. I put the drivers side panel on the passenger side and all other functions worked except my initial problem. I found my main auto switch on drivers side panel was bad which was causing all other functions not to work.
The control may have gone bad... You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. Then you can disconnect the controls and test them
