Unhappy Windows & Locks are screwed up!

About a year ago the PASSENGER side window on my 2001 zx3 quit working. Intermitant at first then completely stopped. It was winter here in Minnesota, so it wasn't really a big deal. Then this spring my DRIVER side door lock stopped - won't work by remote or door switch, manually only. Just been dealing with it - checked all the fuses & acsesible wiring - nothing unusual, have thoughts to change window & lock motors, just haven't gotten around to it yet. Here's the crazy part. Today, for what ever reason, I hit the lock button & both doors lock, try the passenger window & it goes down! Try to put it up & nothing - crap. Hit the unlock button, doors unlock & window goes up!!?? So now I know its a wiring problem, any ideas where to start looking? Is there a relay or module that controls just these functions? Now for the fun part - anybody else with this problem out there?

My wife has a 2001 SE and the rear drivers side window would go down with out a problem, I could hear the window motor working, it would not go back up. I talked to the dealership that said it could be anything from a dusty contact on the controller, a relay to a burnt out motor. I did some trouble shooting myself and took apart the rear door panel ( an easy thing to do with a socket and allen key set ) It turned out to be a relay on the motor, and I had to buy a new motor and relay ( they come together) instead I reversed the wires so up would be down and it didnt work...the first time then after about 5 min it did for some reason and the window went up. The window is now up and the motor is unpluged so I dont have to worry about it again.


PS I just bought the Chilton Ford Focus repair manual and its laid out verry well with lots of troulbe shooting text.

Thumbs down
