Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
The passenger side window and lock is the only one that does not work. I have checked the fuse,and changed the switch to no avail. Now I am trying to locate the relay that supplies power to the window but they are not labeled. Is there a diagram that can identify which one I should check, if that doesn't work then what other options do I have.

Check the wiring inside the rubber boot from the body to the door . Opening an closing the door a million times can cause these wires to break . Testing the electrical circuit using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter before replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose automotive electrical circuit's . You can find free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click body & accessories ,then under subsystem click on power locks or windows ,which ever you want to diagnose first .

try taking apart and cleanig all contacts first. make sure you are getting power to switch. Sounds more switches are going bad. They usually last about 5 to 7 years before they start going out.

I had the same problem. There was a wire broken into where the wires go from the door to the inside of the cab. There is a rubber boot over the wires that you have to take loose to see the wires. I changed fuses, checked switches, and relays but i finally found the problem. I hope this helps. DVPNN

The main reason for this concern, especially if the door is used quite often and/or the vehicle has higher mileage is a break in the wiring going from the drivers door to the body. If you access this area by pulling the protective rubber back, shine a flashlight on these wires and look for a break (open circuit). look for shiny spots from the open copper wire. The stress from the door opening and closing is what causes the break and often you will find more than one broken wire. It will usually be a heavier gauge wire that doesn't flex as easily. Good luck, if you need more info, please ask.
