I have a 2005 Ford Explorer and all power windows have stopped working.

Asked by JMGreen Jun 18, 2013 at 06:31 PM about the 2005 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It was patchy at first and now they are just dead.  I have checked the fuses and even the breaker for the power window relay.  What is my next step?

Quite likely it's the Driver's Door (Master) switch. There are other components to consider but that's the most common to fail. The Body or GEM module is another but check at the switch to see if you have power coming into and out of the switch with a test light first.

Pull the rubber boot in drivers door. It's a broken wire guaranteed

Same problem here. Started out with me having to open my door to roll down/up my windows and then it just quit. Guessing the wires within the doors?
