Windows / Glass Other Not applicable Not applicable
Q: My 1994 Mazda Navajo (Ford Explorer) power window died in the down position with no warning. I've checked the lifter moter, fuse, and switch...all are working. The passenger's window also is working. I don't believe it to be a wiring problem either. Is there a relay which supplies power to only the driver's window? If so, where is it?
A: You need to try the window, but watch the interior light. If it dims when you actuate the window switch, your motor's brushes may be worn out. That means it will work without any torque applied such as lifting the window. Also you may have a binding problem in the regulator, that is the gears that mesh to lift the window.
