thanks for the added info, but Mercury Wagon has the option
You need to check for Voltage + on "both sides" of Fuse "12"
Then check for Voltage + on the BLACK / WHITE wire at the Tail Gate
Test for Voltage + on the LIGHT BLUE / BLACK wire at the Dash Switch
IF Voltage + is good, then test for Ground - at the Dash Switch on the BLACK wires
IF the above is good, then you will need to get to the Window Motor in the Tail Gate & test for "Reversal Voltage + & Ground -" on the "2" wires at the Window Motor
Here is schematic
