2007 F150 5.4 King Cab Rear Windows

The rear windows will go down, but will not go up. Replaced the Master Switch and checked the Relay Switch (30Amp) and it is good. Checked wiring at rear door switch and it is also good.

Well if they go down then there is power to the window switch and it can complete ground now turn the switch over and view the wires the center two are the motor wires with power one side and ground on the other the motor will go up reverse the wires it will go down so the other four wires are the power and grounds to make that happen one of those wires is broken and not completing the circuit.

Hello Wayne; Focus on the grounding of the cab to chasis. The cab is mounted on rubber pods so direct grounding through a mounting bolt is sketchy.. Motors require a very good ground or the connection will build corrosion and compromise itself. There is a ground strap from engine to cab under the hood. This little strap is primarily for static as the vehicle is driven. It stll should be tight and clean. The grounds that need removal, cleaning and reinstall should be two cables on bolts. The first is the battery negative cable. It is fastened to the engine. The second is a cable or braided strap fastened to the engine and other end to the frame. Chk around the motor mounts. I've found braided grnd straps at those locations. Good Luck and I hope this helped -Ned

SOURCE: '00 Ford Explorer - Master window switch won't work rear windows

Without proper electrical diagnostic equipment and based on the very through description that you gave I would suggest getting a new switch. I say a new switch because on the drivers side the switch is one giant junction block. I have the same vehicle and had my door panel off for some locking issues.

I have attached a link to Ford Direct. The part that you are looking for is Window switch, explorer, 4 door, right

Pretty common place for a short or break in wire from door opening & closing so much.

Tried it today and none of the windows work from master switch on drivers side except ft passenger window, which went down but will not go back up.


You can't put up the front passenger window with it's own switch ? Did you check the POWER WINDOW RELAY in the instrument panel fuse / relay box ? An you checked POWER fuse 30amp same fuse box ? All window switches have direct power from power window relay !

97 Cadillac Seville Window Problem


There is one 30amp circuit breaker for all windows.
The power for all windows is transferred thru the master switch in the driver's door, so I would start there. Most models have a switch to lock out the other windows too.

2005 FORD F150 S-Cab Lariat Power Windows not working.


I am having the exact same issue. I replaced my master switch because you would have to hold the driver's window switch and wait for it to kick in. Worked 4.0 for about a week and suddenly no windows work. The lights on the switches work, but when you push on any switch in the truck the window doesn't move, but the lights dim and the heated mirror light illuminates. Both the sunroof and the rear sliding glass both work.

Did you ever find a solution for this???

My rear windows will not raise down..or up on


There is a button on the master switch (drivers) to turn off the rear windows make sure it's not depressed. If not the master switch is probably bad since you lost both rear window control . Power and grounds to the rear switches comes from the master switch.

Electric windows do not work


You have 2 fuse feeds in battery junction box under hood.Fuse 6(60amp) and fuse 62(30amp) and one fuse in the interior fuse panel no. 17(15amp).
How the system works is fuse 6 feeds fuse 62 which feeds the switch side of the accessory delay relay which is located in the interior fuse panel. Fuse 17 feeds the coil side of the relay and the instrument cluster micro-processor grounds the coil side of the relay.
When coil side of relay is grounded it creates a magnetic field which pulls the switch side closed which then lets power flow to the master window switch on the LB/BK wire on pin 6. The ground for the master switch is G400 which is the BK wire on pin 2 and G400 is located in the left rear quarter panel next to the tail lamp assembly.

Hope this helps.

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.
