Power windows fuse or relay

Electrical problem 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles

I just purchased a 2002 Ford Taurus SES at an auto auction. After purchase I realized that I could not get the drivers window to go up. None of the windows seem able to go up or down. There seems to be no other electrical problems. Radio, interior lights, rear defrost, etc. All seem to work fine. I have a manual and checked it for location of a fuse for the windows but it does not provide a location. Searching the web has turned up nothing except similar results where others have not been able to locate a fuse for the windows. I can hear a relay engage if I press the auto down on the drivers window switch but that is all. Any help appreciated.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi
I own a 2002 Ford Taurus with the same problem. I already tried the master switch and checked fuses but nothing seems to work.
Did you ever find a solution for your problem?

There is an accessory relay that runs the system as well. I would start by checking the fuse and if its okay try the relay. Here are a couple of guides and some diagrams (below) to help you get the problem fixed.

Electrical problem
2001 Ford Taurus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

My power windows, and also interior lights, quit working. I can not find EITHER of theses accessorys listed on the fuse block diagram, in the car or in the owners manual. Can anyone tell me WHICH fuse to look at, like the fuse NUMBER?

Hello,

It looks like the windows are powered by the accessory relay. Here is some guides and some wiring and fuse box diagrams (below) that will help you get the problem fixed.
