I have no answer. I have the same problem my automatic windows stopped working. I have no owners manual and can not even ID the fuses in fuse box. Anyone?

The GEM module controls both lighting and windows. You could have a blown fuse for the GEM module - check them, there are several. Try that first. Beyond this, you will need to check to see if the GEM is operating properly. I have a hunch it's a fuse based off of the situation. Good luck.

I called ford and they said the 03 Taurus doesn't have a GEM module.I have the problem of sometimes they stop working.I would like to know what module or part controls them. when not working a click under the left dash and they would start working.

I had this problem,recheck your fuse for interior-exterior lights,they should come on when remote keyless unlock is used.the downward exterior lights under the mirrors& interior lights come on together,or with the key in the door to unlock. Electric windows,if the door switches are good and u hear a clicking sound,its coming from the relays, at the top of fuse panel under dash left of steering wheel, u can remove the cover then place your hand up there while accuating up /down drivers window switch,with key in on position.My relay had a loose connection.push.pull even squeze toghther the top 2 relays.one is for auto down,the other is for other windows. if this dosent help replace both relays. Unless your body shop left wiring unpluged under the switch. make sure u got NEW switches if drivers door was replaced.or a warranty on all that was corrected and make them fix it right.
