Sorry for the delay, somehow your post got shuffled to the bottom of the list. First remove the inner door panel (see pic for attaching points)

Then remove the speaker and inner door handle from door. Unbolt the window clamps on the regulator (see pic)

The regulator is a large assembly, so you will have to unclip all wiring from it and work it out from behind the harness.Unbolt and remove regulator (see pic for reg mounting bolts)

I just installed new regulator, now in the process of putting back together and the window is not where it belongs. Maybe not lined up?

Hello,

The window will set itself. Put it up as high or as low as it will go. Then disconnect the the battery and let is sit for 20 minutes, then reconnect the battery this should reset the initialization.

Also make sure the new regulator is not bound up. I has seem new ones out of the box defective.

Please let me know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Best, Ken

Did you replace all those parts trying to correct the same problem?

What window are you having a problem with and from which switches?

Is the window trying at all. What type of noise is it making?

You will have to remove the door trim, disconnect the window motor and push the window up and chock it with a length of timber.

Just to add to this one you could try removing the inner door panel and tapping on the window motor with a hammer while rolling the window up. Sometimes you can get the windows up that way.

On my 2005 expeition, turning on lights or turning on ac triggers rear window latch and at the time if feels like the battery is being drained. Sometimes it even stalls.

Both the headlight and doorlocks which is lift gate use the same ground behind right kick panel. That can be loose or a bad ground to the body altogether from the battery. They also use the same fuse.

Could be a fusebox, BCM, or wiring issue. Anything done to vehicle just prior to this starting to occur?

Thanks for the help gentlemen. The question posed by fixitmr has 2 answers. The battery was replaced 2 weeks ago and the ac evaporator was replaced 8 days before this started happening. The vehicle also needs a new compressor as it is only running at 50% and the intial back window latch trigger issue initially began when I turned on the ac and the compressor kicked in. It has now moved on to the door locks and the head lights.

It sounds like a bad switch. Check voltage to the motor and see if it is less than 12 volts when you put it in the up position.

Let me know what you find.

You have a weak window motor or binding up window glass. You will have to remove the inner door panel unhook the window glass from the window regulator and see if the window goes up without binding by hand. Its most likely a weak window motor though.
