My passenger window would go down, but not up. It turned out there was a broken wire that went from the driver's door to the passenger door. It probably broke in the rubber flex thing that goes from the car body to the driver's door. I bypassed the wire with a jumper from the harness in the door to the continuation of the harness on the floor under the door sill on the driver's side. The jumper wire comes out of the armrest and loops around near the hinge area to the floor.

My passenger window would go down, but not up. It turned out to be a broken wire, probably in the flex rubber housing that goes from the car body to the driver's door and contains all the wires that go to/from the driver's door.

I bypassed it with a wire that goes from the harness inside the driver's door to the continuation of the harness inside the car at a point point somewhere near/under the door sill of the driver's door. This harness continues to the passenger door.

So I have an orange wire coming out of the armrest and looping to the floor. Not pretty, but it gets the job done. It is looped out of the way sufficiently to not be a problem. The only other choice is to try to do surgery on the rubber housing that supposedly protects all the wires that go from the body to the door. The bypass seemed easier.

What you could do is remove the door card and bypass the switch and put the windows up the windows work from the drivers door ie all the power goes through the window switch first then to all other switches like a set of jump leads also check were the wires go to the door you might have a broken wire check the colour of the power and trace it back from the fuse board to the drivers switch

Do 2002 ford Taurus 24 valve v-6 have a starter relay mounted on the firewall?


I don't think so. The starter has a solonoid on it. There isn't a relay involved. Check for power at the small wire on the starter when the key is in the "start" position. If there is power there ,the starter is bad. If not,could be neutral safety switch or ignition switch.

I have a 2002 ford Taurus & the drivers side


There is no way to ever know what a vehicle
repair would cost & only a fool would quote
a price without first diagnosing the issues AFTER
they have things apart
The last shop let you down
Most window problems are a broken window regulator
Could be the switch was worn & was replaced,the relay
if there even is one & windows seldom have a relay,they just
have a circuit breaker for the motor.
The regulator was going & they failed to remove the door panel
to check it

My '02 Ford Taurus SES windows won't roll down


Power windows are wired through their own relay which is usually located in the fuse box. If you don't have faulty switches in your window system I would have the relay checked out.

If you cannot operate any of the power windows and you lost power on all at the one time it is most unlikely that the motors are faulty.

Passenger will roll down but not up


When you power up an electric motor with no load it will usually work in both directions... when you put the weight of the window glass on it , thats what shows the motor is weak and in need of replacement... replace the motor and you should be good to go...

Ford Taurus Window won't go up


If you are hearing the clicking from the power window relay the only things left would be a break in a wire or a failed window lift motor. If this window only goes down but not up I would inspect the wiring at the door jamb for a damaged wire. If this fails to go either way I would remove the panel, insert test light into the lift motor leads (X2)and actuate the switch, if I get power then I would replace the lift motor. If you get no power in one direction - test switch.

What color are power wirers that control the left power window contols on my 2000 ford taraus.


Principles of Operation
Power Window Control
The one-touch down (OTD) power window function allows the driver door window glass to completely lower with one button press. The driver window control switch is hardwired to the generic electronic module (GEM) and door window regulator and motor. When the GEM senses a one-touch down request from the driver window control switch, the GEM supplies a ground to the OTD Relay coil. The OTD relay then provides power to the driver window regulator motor, lowering the window. The OTD feature will function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position. The OTD feature also operates while the ignition is OFF and the accessory delay time-out period has not expired
