90 Bronco tailgate window stuck down
And what a horrible thing it is. The switch for the window in the tailgate wasn't working right for a few weeks (would let me go down but not up).
I used the tailgate switch to take it down, opened the tailgate, took out some stuff, then closed and tried the key to raise it. It didn't work, but I expected that, so I went forward and tried the dashboard switch (with power on). Still, no response. Tried jamming the door closed as hard as possible, tried wiggling wires/keys, still, no luck.
I am suspecting that the problem is in the safety switch. It looks quite old and worn, and moves like it has no purpose.
The only problem is that I can't get at the switch, motor, or any other connecting window component. I've taken off the interior access panel and all I see is glass. I've tried reaching across to the inside of the driver's gate latch, to get at the safety switch wire, and I can touch it, but that's about it. No way can I bypass it with that little room.
All I need is my window to be UP. I can't touch the window motor, because it's on the other side of the glass, and I can't move the glass, because the connections are inaccessible.
Fuses are all fine. Dash switch works fine. Motor is NOT getting power.
