power windows kaput

My daughter has the same problem in her 2002 explorer. It's intermittent, so the dealer won't even try.
Others on the forum have suggested a broken wire in the bundle where it goes from the door to the body. I tried but couldn't find any bad wires.
I'm disappointed in ford that they have so many problems- wheel bearings don't last, windows don't work reliably and coil springs break.

Maybe the dealer will help if your windows are not intermittently broke. I'm sure that's not the advice you sought, but at least you can try taking off the door panel and seeing if a broken wire is visible.
Good luck.

Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the stock 95-01 section. Check the wiring in the rubber boot between the door, and the frame of the vehicle.

The wires crack inside of the insulation, so you will need a continuity tester.
