2002 F-150 Power window problem

\015 I have a 2002 F-150 with power windows and the drivers side window will not\015\012 go up or down. Each time I push the button to roll down the window I hear a\015\012 click noise around the fuse box in the passenger compartment. I looked at my\015\012 manual for the schmatic of the fuses and none of the relays according to the\015\012 schmatic deals with the window...I'm confused.To add..the window just stopped\015\012 working...can't figuire out why\015\012My 2003Ford Windstar drivers side window used to intermitently go up and down, Now the motor will not operate at all (stopped in the up position).When I press the down switch I hear clicking. My passenger side rear vent window stopped operating also. The right side windows work fine.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 26-06-2017

I have a 2001 Saturn L200 and just had the same problem. Just finished \012smoking a cig before driving into work and my passenger side window \012would not go up and it was snowing!!!

After checking this website\012 I quickly found out that this a fairly common defect with the Saturn \012brand! Since the window switches are located in the middle counsel, they\012 tend to dirty very easy, especially if you smoke, eat, or spill a drink\012 in your car.

Before you go too crazy and pull anything apart...the switch may just need a good cleaning!

You will need a(n).....
  1. large flat head screw driver (3/4" width)
  2. very small flat head screw driver (1/8-1/4" width)
  3. duct tape
  4. Q-tips and toothpicks
  5. cup of HOT soapy water
  6. blow drier or compressor air blaster
Use\012 some small strips of duct tape and cover both screw drivers with tape \012to protect against scratching the counsel and switch. There are two \012metal clips under the north and south positions of the perimeter of the \012switch. Take the small screwdriver and start at the top using small \012prying movements until you see some give. Take the large screwdriver and\012 use it as a wedge. Continue carefully with the small prying movements \012and then follow up with the large screw driver all the way around the \012perimeter until the switch pops out.

Now use the large \012screwdriver to disconnect the switch from the electrical plug....while \012in there....check for dust, dirt, and sticky residue from \012drinks.....clean as needed! Next, examine the switch to see that it is \012operating correctly. **My car had pop spilled on the switch and was \012causing it to remain stuck in the down operation of the window!**

Disassemble\012 the switch completely and you will see three pieces. Use the hot soapy \012water and q-tips and toothpicks to clean every piece good. Be careful to\012 not use too much water on the circuit board you could cause permanent \012damage! Finally, use an air compressor to air blast each piece good \012until dry! At this point I was able to get the switch function properly \012again.

All you should have to do now is work backwards and \012reassemble the switch into the counsel. Test the operation of your \012passenger window. If this does not work then you will need a new or \012replacement switch.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!
