Power windows problem, a temperature thing?


I have been having this problem on and off since last summer, when it is hot my power windows stop working. During the summer they stop working, fist one then the other. Once winter came they were purfect like nothing was ever wrong. Its starting to get hot again and BAM the driver side has stop working and im sure the passenger side will do the same when it gets hotter. I first thought they were sticking cause of the heat but I jiggle and wiggle them and nothing. Ideas? Motor?

I have the same problem with my 2003 mustang. Usually the drivers side, when parked in direct sunlight. the window works fine in the cool morning, but at lunch time, no luck! I can hear a click when I hit the button, but nothing else. the passenger side works fine. If you figure out what's wrong, let me know! I don't want to waste time or money on having a dealer look at it again. The last time they couldn't find anything wrong, probably didn't believe the crazy girl and took it apart in the morning when it was cool!

temperature issue


I have had the exact same issue with my 04 since summer 2005. I usually roll the window up, but not all the way up, perhaps the last 1/8 inch or so. The window is all the way up so rain wont get it, but not all the way up in the track. This is the way I have combatted it, but would rather know to fix it. Well, Saturday, my passenger window started doing it. I have asked mechanincs and dealers alike and they all dont know what causes this. Only when its hot. Doesnt make sense. If anyone could help, please send me a message.

We are having the same problem with our 2000 mustang. The driver side window seems to work only when it's cool outside. The window hasn't worked all summer, however the day I schedule to take it to get looked at, it started working again. So ofcourse they can't do anything unless it doesn't work. This happened last summar as well.

I have similar problems as you guys but mine happens to be something in the door lock, when its hot and I go to lock the door the horn beeps twice letting you know one of the doors is still open but neither are, and the dome light stays on inside and drains the battery. And on the instrument cluster it doesnt say door ajar either

Hey StangGT96, I came across this forum while Googling a similar problem with my 98 Escort (which I believe uses the same chassis as the Mustang, at the time). I came across this link that might help you out. I just tried it without success, but it could be helpful for you or other errant Googlers who might find this.

Also, if you've discovered your own solution to this in the meantime, I'd love to hear it.

Sticking power window fix.


Sorry about digging up an old thread, But I found something that seems to work for me.
I had this issue for a while on the driver's side window of my 2003 mustang. As in the webpage linked to in the previous post noted, the grease used in the power windows gets harder when warm. I cleaned off all the old hard white grease off the window regulator and out of the motor assembly, and put on new fresh grease. I had some high temp wheel bearing grease left over and used that. It seems to be working now without any issues.
