1997 Ford Taurus Q&A
1997 Ford Taurus Question: DRIVER SIDE POWER WINDOW
My driver side power window is stuck in the down position. All the other windows work fine. I looked in the fuse box under the dash and noticed a fuse called a driver window relay. Could this be the problem? How much to fix? Car is a 1997 Ford Taurus GL Wagon. Also, when I press the button to raise window up I hear a clicking sound coming from under the dash, not sure if it's coming from fuse box or not. - ford1963
The clicking is probably from the relay, so it sounds like it is working. This seems more like a motor problem. Try slamming the door pretty hard while at the same time operating the switch, sometimes this will jar the motor and make it work temporarily. - munkyrench
tried the answer by monkeywrench and it works (thanks) almost tore up the window and thinking of repalcing the motor. now i'm afraid that it might get stuck again if i roll the window down all the way ., - conradchua
I only signed up for this to be able to put that munkyrench sure knows what they are talking about. I tried everything and could not get my window to go up, so I googled it and found this site. I tried the slamming and pushing the button and it worked. Thank you soooooooo much. - jlc3
Worked perfect!!!!!!!!!!! Just slam the door at the same time. - Visitor
Worked for my 1999 Dodge Durango.... Like Magic! I live in an apartment complex where break ins are popular... You have no idea how much my nerves are calm knowing my truck no longer has a welcome come on in sign. Thanx Munkeyrench! - Visitor
Slamming the door while at the same time pushing the power window button works. Don't hit on the door, etc. Just close it firmly while depressing the button. Personally, I'm not replacing my window motor until it won't work at all. Not worth the money or the hassle. - Visitor

I removed door panel and tapped window motor with a hammer, press the button, window came right up. Who ever though this up, thank you. - sirwill
Hello, The main window switch unit on your car has gone bad. It is not the motor it is the electrical contacts inside your master control window unit on the drivers side. By slamming the door this jars the switch controller. Now this was my issue and you could have a totally different issue but I figured I would post as it seems to be a very common issue with these P.O.S. ford cars. - zamorajk
JUST LIKE IT STATES is there a fuse - neal griffin
