93\' bronco rear window?

my bronco window in the back all of a sudden wouldnt stop when it closed all the way so looks like it stripped the gears out in the motor so wont go down either now. Where is that switch located that stops the motor when the window is up?

Ford doesn't use limit switches on any window motors. I don't think any mfr. does. If you hold the switch, or if the switch sticks, the motor will receive power until its internal thermal protection kicks in, the fuse/CB opens, or the battery is dead.

Re: 93\' bronco rear window?

so, what actually stops or tells the window to stop is the actual motor or what is connected to the motor? The switch works fine or seems to so I need to pull out the rear window motor then and look at that?

What he is saying is that when it is up you will need to look at it and see that it is up and then you can take your finger off the button. Ford didn't idiot proof the thing. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If it kept going up then the button stuck. If you striped the gears then go to NAPA it will cost you $15 or less.

Re: 93\' bronco rear window?

this is definitely true because on my truck and most other fords i've seen, when the window gets to the bottom of its track, the motor becomes a heating coil and you can watch the voltmeter peg 10 volts until you let off the switch [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
