Master power window switch

Asked by GuruT1R1V Jul 04, 2018 at 05:30 PM about the 1998 Ford Windstar 3 Dr GL Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Ford Windstar and the
master window switch will not roll
down the passenger front window or
the left rear wing window when I
installed a used one that was
guaranteed off eBay I had the same
problem could it be a common
problem with the master switch in that
vehicle or is the problem somewhere

I 've been told that there is a computer module down by the inside fuse box that gives out and causes all kinds of cabin problem, lights coming on,window not working,no dash cruize. mine is just now starting to go out and good luck finding one. I think its call the accessory control unit


Probably a stripped gear! There is a plastic gear that strips out inside the door. I disassembled the entire door assembly motor gearbox and all. The gear only rotates half way around so I just rotated it and used the half that was not stripped. BINGO! Window works fine now.
