Power windows don’t work Ford F-150

Power windows don’t work Ford F-150

The power window switch and rear defroster share a common ground connection in the driver’s side kick panel. If the grounding eyelet is loose or corroded, the power windows will not work and voltage will backfeed to the defroster indicator light, lighting it up. Start by removing and cleaning the ground eyelet in the kick panel. If the windows still don’t work, run a temporary ground wire to the window switch and connect it to the black wire on the driver’s window switch. If the windows now work, run a new ground wire to the black wire on the window switch and attach it permanently.
