Sounds like it could be either switch or winder. Have had the problem you are seeing caused by both, although, totally dead would more probably be the winder.
Wiring problems are rare but not impossible.
I would test, but, unless you have the wiring details it would be hard to do this.
The switch units are around $180. The motors are around $180 each as well. That's with my XR Club discount from Bayford.
The switch is, obvoiusly, fairly easy to replace.
The winder would take no more than one hour for a novice. I take less than 30 mins (lots of practice).
Only issue is drilling out the pop-rivets. Make sure you have some 6mm bolts about 10mm long and matching nylock nuts, four required.
The original pop rivets are available from Ford spares but you need a 6.4mm rivetter which are very expensive. I have and use one of these.
