I would start by checking for power to the P/W motor. If there is no power, move to the switch to see if power is there.

I have a similar problem on the driver's side window, 2001 Windstar limited, 230,000 miles. Passenger window & 1 of the aft windows still work. I have replaced the motor, it worked for a couple of weeks then stopped. Then I replaced the master switch pack on the drivers side, it still doesn't work. It sounds like a relay is engaging when the switch is pressed, but no window movement. Is there a wiring diagram available? I'm going to check the harness for shorted and/or broken wires.

Electrical problem
2001 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 132, 00 miles

power window will not operate. I hear a clicking sound under dash when switch is operated. This began last summer. Window would operate when outside temperature approached 70 degrees. Nothing all fall and winter. Recently on the warmest day this year it began operating, only to stop as it has cooled off. Forecast is for 70+ weather next week. I have my fingers crossed. I'm not making this up.

It sounds like either a bad relay or the motor itself is bad. Have you checked to see if the motor is getting power? Have you tried switching out the relay with a known good one?

I have a similar issue. 2001 model. I have replaced the motor & switch pack on this window. It worked for a couple of weeks after the motor replacement, then stopped. No help with switch replacement.
Can you tell me the which relay and the location of it?
Is there a diagram available?

Thanks!

Hello,

This sounds like the accessory delay relay is bad which is common here is the location so you can change it out with a guide to confirm the failure.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

You'll have to test the power coming into the switch to determine if the switch is the problem or not.

Your only testing the power OUT of the switch, not the power INTO the switch.

So if I tested the voltage going into the switch is low do I replace the switch? Can you give me some solutions?

The power window has quit working in the passenger side door. I am attempting to take the door panel off and have a look. Are there any special things I need to be aware of when I take the door panel off and what might be the reason the window quit working, what should I look for? Thank you
