2003 Ford Windstar: the driver side window stopped working
I have a 2003 Ford Windstar and the driver side window 2003 Ford Windstar: the driver side window stopped working Here is a wiring diagram.Greetings! Simple way to check. You will have to remove the inside door panel. Its better than paying someone to do it for you. Take things apart carefully until u see the two wires that go to the motor. with a test light that you can buy at a local auto store connect either end to the wires that go to the motor. Turn the key on and try to move the window up and down via switch. If the test light, lights up both ways and the window does not move u have a bad motor. If the test light does not light up than you could have a bad switch or you could be missing a power or ground. Good luck!YES! It could also be the front electronic module. Also, I think you might be missing a ground. Try adding a ground and see if the window starts working. A missing ground could be because of bad switch or the module. Here is a wiring diagram.Ok.. The front electronic module is what supplies the power and ground to the drivers side front window motor. This gets is signal from the master switch. It is located inside the car up under neath the drivers side dash. Here is a picture.If you cannot get access to the module, just go to the window motor and or switch. (to get to the motor, you might have to remove the door panel). There will be two wires going to the window motor. Black with yellow and orange with yellow. When the switch is pushed down, one wire will go power and the other will go ground. When the switch is pushed up, the polarity will switch to the motor. The wire that was power, will go ground, and the wire that was ground, will go power. So basically, you are simply just looking for both power and ground going to the motor when the switch is pressed up and down. The easiest was to test for this is right at the two wires going into the motor. If you are missing either power or ground on those two wires, then well will have to check the inputs to the front electronic module. The two wires we are going to be concerned with coming from the master switch to the FEM module are going to be the red with light green wire and the black with orange wire. Those wire will do the same (switch from positive to ground depending on if the switch is pushed up or down). If the signals are present going into the module from the switch and the module is not sending the correct signals, the module is bad. If the switch is not sending the correct signals into the module (power and ground) on the two wires, then the switch is bad. I would have my money on the switch being bad. I see this more than I see the module going bad. But it is a possibility. Thats why we are going to have to diagnose this. Start at the master switch on the drivers side door to make it easy. If the switch is sending out the correct signals, replace the module. If the switch is not sending out the right signals, replace the switch.SOrry for the delay. WHen you checked the black/orange wire and the orange/ yellow wire, when they went positive, was the other wire ground? THe best way to test for this, is to put a test light between the two wires and move the window switch up and down. If both signals are correct, the test light will light up when the switch is moved to both up and down position. It sounds like you are getting power but no ground. WHen the window switch is pushed down, and we have power to the black/yellow wire, lets be sure we have a ground on the orange/yellow wire.Close.. we want to test either the orange/yellow wire and the black/yellow (from the FEM to the window motor [test these wires at the window motor itself]) with both ends of our test light connected to either of the two wires. OR We want to test the black/orange wire and red/light green wire (from the switch to the module). Again, both lead of the test light should be touching both of these wires at the same time. You should be able to test this at the power window master switch. The test light should light up when the switch is pressed both ways.OK.. the reason the test light did not light up is, I believe your missing a ground. Put the alligator clip of the test light and hook it up to the battery negative and touch the tip of the test light to each of these wires one at a time. Tell me which one has power when the switch is pushed up and down. You know what.. scratch that! Instead of testing the red/light green wire, lets test the brown/ yellow wire. Move the test light light over to the black/orange wire and the brown/ yellow wire.You know what.. scratch that! Instead of testing the red/light green wire, lets test the brown/ yellow wire. Move the test light light over to the black/orange wire and the brown/ yellow wire.HA! I think this is our problem. Brown/yellow wire should have power on it when pushed down. Try powering this wire up momentarily;y. Maybe the window will go down.Well maybe the switch has got to be pushed down. But since is a bad switch, it might not work. Look at the wiring diagram I gave you earlier. This brown/yellow wire should have power to it when the master window switch is pushed down. If not, the switch is not allowing power through those certain contacts. THe switch is bad and needs to be replaced. You still might have another issue, but I know for sure your switch is bad.
