We are thankful the window did not break and injure us. I know this may not seem very dangerous, but put yourself in the driver's seat and imagine your window being shot out while traveling 45mph. Mine was a 6-hour job while the Corvette's were in the 9 to 10 hour range. . The SuperCrew the splice is generally a purple wire back by the C-pillar, and looks to be wrapped in a tape that looks like hockey tape. Went online and found hundreds of complaints of the same.
I could be dead because Ford wants to put out shoddy work and not stand behind it. That sensor happens to be above the gas tank for some strange and bizarre reason so the only way to get to it was practically disassemble a lot of stuff in the rear end and get the gas tank out to get to the sensor and then put everything back. Very happy with it but I still enjoy using my 2005 because I don't have to worry about cleaning my shoes before getting in it or bumping into anything or any of that stuff that comes with a brand new truck lol! Look at that slew of mumbalumgum of wires holy moley! All 3 are on the same fuse, so I assumed that was the problem. While driving at highway speeds the windows collapsed into the doors causing a loud noise. It was so loud that it sounded as if the glass itself broke causing me to flinch away.
Route 2 is some times there is a water leak in the driver's side door sill. This truck is a 2005 the parts are not that old. If this happens, there are usually other symptoms open door will not shut of radio, power mirrors don't work, etc. Too many complaints of the same issue to not be on recall list. The SuperCrew the splice is generally a purple wire back by the C-pillar, and looks to be wrapped in a tape that looks like hockey tape. Then a few picks of my own process The channel with the plug removed Before I sanded down, hit with primer The plug The wiring harness that shows the broken splice.
So now I have two windows that are inside the door that will not go up. The problem is with the window regulator. Luckily there were no injuries associated with it. While driving three days ago I heard a loud pop and suddenly my front passenger side window was gone, it had fallen into the door. Regulators needed to be replaced for both.
When I called the Ford dealership and described the problem they immediately knew what it was and said that it was common. Please do whatever has to be done to force a recall. The power adjustable petal on my 2004 ford explorer quit working last week. It was a sunny day. Should have signs of water damage.
I was able to drive but we hit a thunderstorm 1 hour from home. There have been over 1,000 complaints filed and probably is only the tip of the iceberg. If not you will have to check inputs at module. The fuses are all good I am having the same problem with my 2005 King Ranch Expedition. Mar 19, 2013 Check for a bad splice in the driver's side door sill. I had a 1997 F-150, kept it for 8 years and used it for my business and then bought my F-350 turbo diesel crew cab in 2005.
The motor still runs on this one as well, but does not move the window. Last year the drivers window popped and the window dropped inside the door I went to Ford bought the cable and regulator and had a window company replace it. There is a wire that is spliced 1 in, 2 out that can corrode and break. When the window reached the top the window fell free fall was more like it in to the door. We purchase the vehicle 2004 and the drivers side window's regulated failed a loud sound was heard and the window came down by itself.
The contact stated that the front driver side window malfunctioned and the window could not be opened. Posted on Oct 15, 2010 There is a seat module under the seat that reads the inputs from the switches and then sends power to the motors, disconnect and reconnect and it may reset. This issue needs to be investigated for sure! Posted on May 29, 2010 In trying to repair this issue i replaced the switches and this corrected the problem. These windows fall at any given time while parked or driving. Search the web and there are hundreds of vehicles with the same issue. Ford needs to issue a safety recall now to make this right for the loyal customers. Once I had realized that the window had basically just fallen from its closed position, I was furious.
