Window power?

I have sort of an odd issue (very seldom). It's happened twice now in the last couple years, the last time being yesterday.

When I stop the truck and go to roll up the windows nothing happens. I turn the truck off and back on and nada. I let it sit for an hour or so and come back out and 3 out of 4 windows roll up fine but the 4th did not. I walk around and hit the switch on that door and it rolled up fine.

Is there a relay or something I should be looking at?

Since it worked on the actual door, maybe the switch on the drivers door?

It probably wont happen again for a long time, but wonder what could cause this?

One other thing, it did not appear to have any power at all going to the windows at first but after the first 3 rolled up and the 4th would not the dome light would dim when I hit the switch on the drivers door.

Thought it best to resurrect this one then post another with the same issue.

Did you ever discover the root cause and find a fix? Took my truck to get new headliner and on the way home the windowis out, interior map lights are out and radio is out.

Maybe it's the Mayan thingy but the window issue had been intermittent for a few months but always returned to function as normal until today. Read across the 30amp circuit breaker it had 1.1 ohms. Pulled the switches and tried to read across the switch that powers all the windows and discovered it's a circuit board. So tried to read across the 5 pins and none of them ever changed state.

Hope you have some good news to share....

Thanks,

C-man

Unfortunately for you, but fortunate for me my issue has not happened since my last post. Very wierd problem to encounter.

I was surprized no one had any further information to go on.

Hey yeah understand...

On this link: VSM - Page 3 - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums I finally saw the details needed to locate the VSM. But his truck is a '02 and mine is a '03 and yep you guessed it....it is not in that same location!!! Sooooo WTH...???

Anyone know where the VSM in a '03 is located??

I have the dash removed, unplugged the gauges and replugged them and wiggled them and no window power...... So, my guess is that the VSM module is bad.......but......sigh......

will have to take to dealer next Thursday otherwise......I'd go to a junk yard if I knew where the heck the module is....!

Patially fixed...maybe...?

Tunnel vision is a terrible thang!

Did not think about the fuses for the instrument cluster which have two. The 10 amp fuse was blown. No idea what caused it but the Ford tech appreciated my tearing out the dash and saving him time...ha..ha... Ford cluster is 649 ouch...! He could not find a VSM nor a GEM and muttered on his way out about getting my ticket. So my next step will be to check the water drains on the air vents and run a coat hanger or my fiberglass electrical snake and see if the drains are cleared. Maybe water is backing in some where? Don't know how to remove passenger kick panel but will try to pop it out and see if the mystery box is there. Need to know what the root cause is and fix it.

Because I dang near drove into a Doge dealership where they had an '11 F-250 for 39.9k!...WHEW that was close good thing I was driving to fast to slow down and zoom in there.........

So if anyone has anymore clues it sure would be appreciated....

Thanks.....C-man....

no windows, radio, map lights

try the battery saver relay...replacing it fixed my power problems. The catch is that it is built into the instrument cluster, and the only way to fix it is to replace the entire cluster...another better idea from Ford.
