Hi

96 Escort Zetec, O/S electric window no longer works. Switch is OK, I think the problem is the terminal/connector to the switch. Do i need to replace the whole piece of wiring from door to switch ?

That's a common problem. Have you tested the connections. In the past I have got a small screwdriver in and moved the connections around so the get a better purchase on the pins from the switch.

If it is not the connections it could be where the wiring goes into the door. The wiring may have broken where the door opens and closes as it can become brittle.

Hi thanks for the tip.

If I waddle the wires around inside the connector the little light on the switch flashes briefly, I will try a small screwdriver in there.

 

Cheers

Dave

That's fixed it - the connections inside the terminal were pushed back - prising them back with a screw driver did the trick.

 

Many thanks

Dave
