No, or bad door window switch -- a fix
« on: March 21, 2011, 05:30:54 PM »
Don't know the availability of door window switches, but, if missing or bad you can operate the window(s) from the drivers switch(s) as follows:

For the rear windows, connect the yellow/blk wire at the door with the green; and, the violet with the pink/wht.  Tape off the end of the red/wht.  The window(s) will work from the drivers' switches.

For the front pass. door, same thing but different colors - can provide if needed.

The switches were used on Jeeps and I forget, either by GM or Ford.

Mine has "Ford" stamped over it. I actually saw very similar switches on a Gran Torino.

Lots of Ford stuff in our Eagles...

Thanks for the idea, hanajack ! I'm having some trouble with my switches, I'll give it a try...

Oh, really ? I guess that's why I need BOTH rear bumper corner caps now. Doh !

  • If a hammer won't fix it, it's probably electrical

I only have the electric door locks.  I wonder if the switches are found in similar vehicles as the window switches?
