Bad Motor??? Bad Switch??? Short in wiring??? Have somebody (preferably ASE Certified Mechanic) check it out for you...

Good luck on the Limo part. Ford didnot build the limo part and there a numerous manufacturers that did. I doubt they will be able to assist you with a car that old. Find the build tagfor the builder and contact them if they are still around.

I know this is an old blog but some people may still find it helpful. There are 4 wires in the roof window switch hooked up to 2 smaller harnesses that have 2 wires each.
Remove the switch and use only the metal contacts in the harnesses. One should use a light tester to confirm which one is the ground and live. this is how it turned out for my car.
One harness has a light blue wire with a black stripe, and a black wire. the blue one is live, the black one is ground.
The other harness has a red wire and a darker blue wire (silly ford) these are the motor connect and return wires.
You must hook up thhooked to (example, if the live wire was connected to blue motor wire and the ground wire was connected to red motor wire and it opened it, that would mean you would want to put the live wire to the red motor wire and the ground wire to the blue motor wire)
When doing these wire connections, it is advised that you have the ignition turned off. Once you make all the connections properly, you can turn on the ignition and if done correctly, the roof window will move. Once it is closed, remove the wires frome the harnesses and LEAVE THE ROOF WINDOW ALONE UNTIL YOU HAVE A NEW SWITCH.
e power (Live, light blue) wire to a motor wire. You must then run another wire from the other motor wire. To complete this circuit there is only one place that this last wire can go and it is to the ground. once this is connected the roof should either open more or close.
To reverse the operation of the roof, simply reverse the position of the live and ground wires in respect to which motor wires they are

To remove the window switch console from the drivers side door, gently pry up the console, start at the front of the panel, because this is where the friction fastener is. After this is pryed up, slide the unit forward and remove. Then you can remove the switch package. This package can be disassembled and you can clean the contacts to restore the switch back to operation,.

Testimonial: "Thank you. Once I know that the switch plate is gently pried up tp remove, the rest was easy."

I have to ask what happened? Did you have the tranny out? Hit a raccoon? Don't matter, i don't have a diagram, although I'm sure you could find one, even on Youtube you might find what I'm going to tell you, most Fords have a hole in the switch for alignment of the neutral, I think it is a 3/16 drill bit will fit the hole, and when you loosen up the 2 bolts, turn the unit till the drill bit falls in back wards, tighten it up, you should be in neutral. If it doesn't have the pin hole, just loosen up the bolts, turn the unit ever so slightly, either way while someone clicks the key, keep it in park, you will find it eventually, it is very sensitive. The neutral safety switch is located on the left side where the shifter goes into the tranny. It has 2 bolts on it, should not have to come off. Hope this helps.
