Help! I have a 1992 Ford F-150 XLT - Power Windows. The passenger side
switch will power the window down but not up. The driver's side switch that
controls the power window on the passenger side will power the passenger
window up and down with no problem. I just purchased a new switch for the
passenger side (I know....I should have swapped out the toggle switches
first) and the same symptoms are displayed - using the passenger side toggle
switch...will go down but nothing happens when trying to raise. I checked
and replaced the 20 amp fuse....still no change.
Any suggestions at this point would be greatly appreciated!
It's the 3 little rollers in the gear motor head that are crushed. Here's a
fixing guide: http://www.lincolnsonline.com/article56.html
Use the 3-pack of nylon rollers for about $4 you can get on the Motormite HELP!
rack at most auto parts stores; use those INSTEAD of the metal nuts recommended
in the article.
Hey Sharon, I've seen you refer folks to lincolnsonline quite a few times. Do
hang out there? I've been a member for about a year and a half, since i bought
Mark. Great forum with very little bickering. All in all, a really good bunch of
folks. I post there when I "think" I have something to offer. Look at the recent
are you doing for Halloween" thread and think trains.
Remove the switch and look into the sw connector for deformed socket, also
check for wiring integrity in that connector block.
Might remove block and do wiring tug 'n' wiggle test while switch is in
Power and ground supply to the passenger side switch comes from the drivers
switch" when it's in the neutral position. If you really study a wiring diagram
can eventually get your head around how it works ;). The drivers side switch for
passenger window can cause the problem you describe or,a broken wire between the
drivers door and body. Right where they flex opening and closing the door.
Pull the passenger door switch (unplug it) and check for B+ and ground at the
connector. In my pathetic attempt at ASCII art below, the o is the index pin and
x's are the connector terminals, the numbers are for reference. Check terminals
2, one should have power, the other should be ground. It may be terminals 5 and
Terminals 3 and 4 should go to the motor.(I'm going on memory here).
This will tell you what is missing (power or ground). Look at the wire colors.
go to the drivers switch connector (leave the switch in place), find the proper
wire colors and check them for the B+ and ground. If you are still missing
the "master" switch is bad. If you have B+ and ground you likely have a broken
the drivers door jamb.
I tried to explain this as simply as I could, I hope you understand it. If
back and I'll try to clarify it.
