I did find that I have some sort of short in the driver side wire loom. Started wiggling and lots of lights and buzzers started dancing. My bet is that Bigb56 is correct. Damn! Now how to get at that loom??????
I haven't looked at the Ford yet, but I have had to so it on my Grand Cherokee and my Mercedes 300. On the Jeep it was the right rear window, but the broken wire was in the drivers door jam harness. the dealer wanted $260 or something JUST FOR THE PART. So I took it out and onto the workbench. I had to solder in a piece to make it a bit longer. I did it to several that were starting to break. If you just try to put the original wire(s) back together they will just pull apart again, too tight, so splice in a bit more and shrink wrap the splice. The Jeep door harness unplugs, but it is still a royal pain to get to and put back. It is held in by bolts in the centers.
On the Mercedes I had to pull the door panel, then unhook everything and pull it all out. I replaced about a foot with a new bundle I made up, and put it inside a piece of fuel line before threading it back thru the boot.
Let us know how the Ford comes apart, I'm sure we will all be there some day. Pics would be nice!
