1996 Ford Taurus Q&A
1996 Ford Taurus Question: power windows only work with drivers side master switch.
My 96 Taurus power windows only work with the drivers side master switch. All windows work perfectly,no blown fuses etc.It's like the master switch lock button is on,which it's not. Tried a used master switch from the wreckers, same result.Tried cleaning and aligning points inside switch for lockout button,no change. A new master switch is about $90.00,and just want to confirm that is the problem before I buy one. Any other checks or information would be appreciated. Thanks. - vancouvermike
Typically the master switch is the issue, but I'm concerned you swapped the parts and had no improvement. This vehicle does utilize a GEM (Generic Electronic Module) that power windows operate through. You could have a wiring or GEM problem. However, I still lean towards the switch. - DaveJHM
