Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will do all I can to help.
Do you hear any clicking or any noise at all from the window motor inside the door when you move the window switch back and forth?
Just so I'm clear, you get no window movement from the drivers door switch, they are all inop from the drivers switch, but you can roll down all three windows from the other doors correct ?
Do you have power on the RED wire going into the Drivers door switch?
Check fuse 25 under the instrument panel on the drivers side. Did you look at it? 30 amp. page 229 in the owners manual if you have it, if not let me know and I can post a link.
That is odd, as I am looking at this diagram.
This diagram is obviously wrong, as there are only 3 wires going to that switch.
here is 2 of 2 showing the switch with 3 wires. it's my mistake.
OK, so this switch operates on a network and the module is elsewhere that gets powered up by fuse number 25 under the dash. Do you have the owners manual by chance?
25 under the dash is good? I'm not referring to 25 under the hood.
Alright, likely the DDM has failed then. if you've already tried another switch. You don't happen to have an advanced type scanner capable of reading codes other than engine codes do you?
I gotcha, it's probably the drivers door module. if you could jump some power to the window motor regulator and it worked fine. and you tried another switch, that's about the only thing left.
Check power and ground to that module, if you have power and ground to it, (via that wiring diagram I uploaded earlier) then I believe that module is going to be the culprit.
Let me know if you have any further questions. I believe that DDM is the only thing left in the circuit that would cause your issue barring a completely defective motor since you tried another switch.
Can you communicate with the drivers door module?
You speaking of your snap on solus right? I'm not sure if it will or not to be honest. I know it reads ABS and SRS and those kind of codes. go through that menu and see if you have a DOOR or BODY heading somewhere.
OK, I don't think that's going to get them out unfortunately.
I think it might take Ford's IDS. I'm not sure what is out there that is compatible.
That's correct, it sends varying signals to the DDM, and the DDM is responsible for all those other functions.
turn the key on, hold the switch down, and slam the drivers door a time or two. see if that makes the window go up or down. depending on whether it's stuck up or down, move the switch the opposite way.
hold power to the motor while you close the door, just to see if jarring it around any makes any difference.
Any luck with any of that?
Alright, Sounds good.
