My two bits on what seems to be the crux of a dispute:
If a person needs advice (ie unable to figure it out for himself) on what to do about a power window problem, I for one would not advise him to fiddle around electrical connections (to a presumably DPDT switch). My advice would be the same as SSTs, mechanical in nature.

Good post. I have another idea, if the purpose is to protect for a night- a full body cover for the car, I think, could be used to hide the open window from vandals.

Unhappy Re: Ford Ikon Power Window Cable Replacement GUIDE

Sorry for reviving such an old thread but, I'm having a problem with the driver's window on my Ikon. It seems to be stuck in the downward direction!
Is there a quick fix for this because my local mechanic claims that it'll cost around 1500-2000 for a switch that I'll have to procure myself from Opera House (with no warranty!)!

The switch can be fixed in some cases. If you are competent enough to open it up. You only need a screwdriver to check. And when you say stuck- describe the symptoms a little more. Is the window stuck and refuses to go up or down? Or does it go down, but refuses to come up?

The window is stuck(closed). The upward direction of the switch for the driver's window doesn't have a tactile feel like the other three window switches. When I press the switch in the downward direction(to roll down the window), the tactile feel is present but the window doesn't roll down at all! This gets really annoying when I have to pay tolls et cetera!

Your switch does appear to be damaged. Perhaps it can be repaired, but you'll have to open it up to see. I doubt this is the case, but you can have a buildup of crud on the contacts. Cleaning them does the trick.
