Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

Electrical short radio 2005 ford explorer sport trac

The radio in my 2005 sport trac quite working. It was working fine; turned it off by pushing the on/off/volume knob and something shorted out an blew a fuse resulting in a non-operative unit, no radio or clock. When replacing the fuse twice, the new fuses immediately blew upon insertion. Sounds like a short. Easily identifiable or a needle in the haystack?

THE RADIO MOST LIKELY IS THE PROBLEM, WITHOUT THE REPAIR MANUALS IT WOULD BE VERY HARD TO REPAIR (man. not availiable to the public), YOUR BEST BET IS TO FIND A FORD AUTHORIZED REPAIR SHOP, THEY ARE ON THE NET, THE OTHER BUY A USED UNIT ON EBAY, THE LAST IS THE BEST OPTION, I HAVE DONE THIS ON SEVERAL CARS AND WORKED OUT GREAT, LESS THAN $100 FOR A USED UNIT.

My ford 2005 explorer sport trac the windows don't work.


You may want to check the relay that goes to the primary window. This will provide support to all the other windows. However, it may not just be the window relay, it could possibly be that between your window relay and your main switch there is a short or cut wire that is causing this problem. Unfortunately, you may need to visit your Ford Dealership to run a diagnostic on your wire or if you know an electronic shop that can run one to see if it is receiving and sending power. Have them check the main door fuse and window assembly to see that you are getting power.
