Intermitten problem with power................

windows and door locks. It's my GF's 2003 Grand Marquis. Two things going on. You can't unlock all the doors sometimes with the remote, the inside switch on the driver's door or the keypad. With the windows it's either the driver or passenger front. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.
Thanks,
Rock

Try swinging the door open slowly when they don't work. It may be a break in a wire in the door jam area and moving the door, flexes the wires.

Re: Intermitten problem with power................

i am wondering if it is broken wire or bad switch... my fiances 1992 the windows will work on each door but sometimes the drivers main control is only thing that will work them... i am guessing her car has a bad main control on drivers door... could also be with your car the regulators might be gummed up and need cleaned which means pulling door panels...


my 1986 Grand Marquis LS... Rose...

I'll check it out this weekend. I noticed when I closed the passenger door last night there was a rattle. I guess removing the door panels are pretty much the same as it is on other cars.
Thanks for the replies.

Removing the panels are different. You take some screws out and slide it up. If you pull out, you'll break the tabs that hold the panel on.

Thanks for the tip. Anytime you're working on somebody else's car the last thing you want to do is break something.
