Rear Window Problem

Hey guys, got an annoying problem here. The Drivers Side, Passenger window rolled down today but wont go back up.

Watching the battery gauge while vehicle is running, all windows draw a current when switches are pushed. Except that the window in question will draw a current on the gauge when going DOWN but nothing when going up. Doesnt even sound like the motor engages when pressing up on the switch :(

Unfortunately I havent found any how-to's t re-engage the passenger controls, p-71 that only has the master switch enabled :(. I hate having that window down for obvious reasons.

So I need some tips for repair, either a way to re-engage the other controls and roll the window back up or how to get the window up without power to it.

Re: Rear Window Problem

If you remove the switch bezel from the armrest, you'll find wires disconnected and taped to the harness. They have to be reinstalled in the connector.

Re: Rear Window Problem

unfortunately I already did that, clips are plugged in, someone disconnected it the hard way. 2004 cvpi.

Funny thing is, the passenger side front cant roll down their windows but they sure can lock and unlock the doors. Im not sure where the disconnect is. Window still rolls down, wont go up grrr.

Re: Rear Window Problem

Oh to add to THAT, Driver's passenger can unlock and lock doors simply enough. Driver button has a hard time, like its struggling to send the signal. Do the master switches go bad from time to time???

Re: Rear Window Problem

I thought you had an older one, you didn't mention in the first post. Here's how to connect the newer ones. The plug has to be reconnected in the drivers side B-pillar, where the seatbeltis mounted. Here's a picture.

Ok, that was disconnected, re-connected it. Still no power to the window, rolling up or down in passenger seat. Still not able to power it back up via mainswitch either. Was hoping that was going to be a quick fix... there is another plug unplugged down there though... seems out of place.

Re: Rear Window Problem

You do have the window lockout in the unlock position on the drivers master switch? Also the master switche gets dirty inside from dust and stuff. They can be disassembled and cleaned.

Re: Rear Window Problem

now that its night, not even all of the switches are lighting up on the master switch. the rear switch is lit up with window lockout off, turns off when locked out. When you hit it however, the light to the switch shuts off and no power transfers to the window motor... Beginning to wonder if my master switch is fried.

Re: Rear Window Problem

That's probably where the problem is. You can disassemble them and clean them. Her's a link to the details. 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis Window Switch Repair pictures, videos, and sounds | SuperMotors.net
