Electric window fault
« on: February 08, 2020, 08:24:49 PM »
Its not the loom. Bought and fitted new loom and four way switch. Passenger window works but all others dead. Could it be a relay and if so which one? Drivers window half way down. Checked fuses.
Galaxy mk2 05 plate. Thanks

Passenger window works from the passenger switch only? Drivers Switch?

It can be the case on unplugging the door loom from the connector in the door pillar, that the bits that make up the connector allow some of the connections to drop back out, then when you push it back together some of them are pushed out completely. May be worth checking that?

Which loom have you changed? I'm guessing the drivers door loom?

Changed drivers door loom and passenger window opens with both driver and passenger switch. Neither rear window or drivers  work from any switch. Thanks for reply.

If the passenger window works in a downward direction only from the drivers switch, but is fine on the other door switch, I had that and that was a broken wire in the drivers door gaiter (one of the thick ones in there, only difference in mine was the rear windows were manual though). I'd suggest you pull the boot away from the gaiter and have a good look to rule out any chance of a wire being broken in the new one if you haven't already done so. These cars are known to have problems with the door wiring due to the design and the quality of some of the wires used.
Alternatively your looking to check your loom with a multimeter. I'd guess there is nothing on the end of the red/yellow wire looking at the diagram. I suspect (don't have time right now to look through the diagram in detail to confirm) that the rear windows supply comes through the drivers door as you have the lockout button for the rear windows there

TIS shows F75 is the supply to the drivers switch, but if this was blown I think you get nothing at all. There are no relays that only control that circuit either. Ford typically don't use relays in the window circuit from what I've seen.

Wiring diagram attached if its any help, though bear in mind it doesn't fully cover the later vehicles, so you may have some differences.
