Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

More than likely it is going to be a failure of the drivers switch or a broken wire in the door jam on the drivers side. Now if you understand electrical testing and have a tool to do so I can help you figure this out.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

Please walk me through the areas to test.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 10 months ago

Lets first off remove the passenger switch.

Voltage test the light blue/black wire, it should be power with the key on.

OHM test the tan/light blue wire and white/yellow wire, both should be ground.

I forgot to state. When passenger window went out, couldn’t open passenger window from both passenger and drivers switch so would be odd for both drivers and passenger switch to go out at same time.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 10 months ago

Thanks for the extra details. I am trying to see what the passenger switch is not getting. So far I do not believe the passenger switch or motor is to blame but we need to make sure with these tests.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
