Send me to a broke window thread?

Hi all, I am searching for a thread on window motors. My 2000 F250 passenger side window goes down, but not up. It is currently in my carport with the window stuck down. I'm leaving town for a trip in a couple days and want to get this thing rolled back up before leaving. Any tips/threads/links/schematics on the window and motor are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

it is just current reversing so have you bypassed your switch and powered it directly to rule out the switch ??

Hi Zmann, thanks for the reply. I have not, I'm not sure how to do that actually. Happen to have directions on doing so?

Hold the up button and hit the door panel with your hand just right of the speaker at the same time.

or try that !

LOL

you would have to ull the door panel and access the motor
then run a power lead and ground to the motor leads
revers them for up and down


you could do it at the switch but I don't know how to tell you that procedure

I would
1) remove door panel
2) disconnect the window motor connector
3) Using a portable 12v battery source, jump box etc, connect the the motor. if it goes up, reverse the connection, if it goes down, test you switch with an ohm meter. If switch is bad, replace. If switch is good, test all connectors and then continue back looking for short.
Most likely a bad switch.
I used this method to power the motor in a junk yard to pull glass. Worked great.
