Re: Auto window switch

yeah the control is on the back side of the switch it has a solnoide that holds the switch down till the windows gets to the bottom then it lets go ( it sense load on the motor to turn it off )

Re: Auto window switch

If its an EL it sometimes lets go.... bloody switches sticks sometimes, especially if its hot in the car. Usually when you realise the motor has already shut down on overload and you have to wait for it to reset.
At the price Ford want for a new switch assembly, I'm looking for other fixes!

Re: Auto window switch

I think its not a bad idea, as it is a very useful feature if you're lazy like me. The only problem would be it would cost you a hell of a lot in parts, as you cant actually buy just the switch on its own, and seeing as the one you want is on the drivers side, youd need to buy the 4 panel one just to use 1 swith from it.

So unless you're made of money or could source the parts from a wrecker, i dont think its be worth the cost involved.

Re: Auto window switch

its not that i am lazy. (i dont seat in the passenger seat very often) its more for my wife. she gets stropy when she cant wind her window down quick. i dont think getting parts is a problem. lots of au wrecks around.
point taken if i cant get one from a wrecker. i wouldnt think FORD would sell them by themselves.

Re: Auto window switch

Yeah, unfortunately Ford have a habit of ruining all my plans for modifications cos they wont sell me the bits i need, or they will but ill get 10 other things with it i dont want.

Let me know if you go ahead with it as i would be very interested in the results.
