Hi,

I have a '98 Taurus SE that the passenger side window will not go up.

I pushed the button and the window went all the way down, but later when I went to roll it up - nothing.

The lights are on in the passenger button, but no power or movement.

I take it the window motor went bad??

Window regulator??

:dunno:

HELP!!

:noes:

Either regulator, motor, connection, switch. A simple way to test it is to push the up button with the door open, then slam the door while still pressing the button. If the window goes up, it is 99% the motor failed. This test is similar to tapping on a starter to get it to go one last time. Your window will probably work for a few days while until it hits the dead spot again.(I've got an extra month out of it) Remove the door panel and test for power at the motor while pressing the switch. Im sure somebody else on here will chime in with a wiring diagram. YOu could also go buy a Chilton's/Hayne's manual.

Is this a Ford trick to push the up button and slam the door, or does this work any pretty much any vehicle?

:p

Works for any vehicle. The vibration from slamming / hitting the door helps the motor get past the bad spot in the windings that is preventing it from moving.
