problem #6

Windstar 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission

Just after buying it, the window on the passenger side went out. It was a used van so it was no covered. Over the years, one after another has stopped working. Now the last one has stopped working, the drivers side. Like I said on another post, they stopped making anything good after the late 70s.

My car is stupid! The power windows, dome lights, and the cigerette lighter will sometimes only work if it rains and as soon as the rain stops the windows and all stop.

What in the world?

Window regulator breaks down. Pain in the hiney to have a window broke down half way up when cold, or hot.

I've had this repaired once, replaced the motor. It worked for about 2 weeks and then went out again. I haven't had another $300 to fix it again.

OK, I have already had the motor replaced in the front passenger window, switch replaced. The window worked for approximately 15 days and then it stops again.....

Any solutions out there?
