Power windows are on their own ckt .you probably have a bare wire in the drivers door jam where it flexes in the rubber conduit,operate the window while opening and closing the door and see if it blows the fuse.

Power windows stopped working and replaced the main switch but still not working . where is the fuse for the power windows?

Locate the fuse panel just to the left of your steering wheel, facing the driver's side door.

  • 2 Open the panel by pulling the cover outward. Look at the fuse listing on the inside panel of the fuse box to identify the location of the fuse you wish to replace. The location and amperage of each fuse varies slightly between all Ford Explorer models, so it's important to check the corresponding number listed on the inside fuse panel.
  • 3 Use the fuse puller in the fuse box and carefully remove the fuse for the electrical malfunction you're experiencing. Examine the fuse to see if it's blown, represented by a burned-out wire. Compare it to another fuse that works if you're are unsure.
  • 4 Discard the blown fuse and replace it with one of the same amperage. The amperage for each fuse is listed on the inside cover of the fuse box.
  • 5 Replace the fuse puller and cover the fuse box. Start your Ford Explorer and check to see that the electrical issue is resolved.

    My power windows quit working all at once,no warning there was a problem. I have a 2001 Ford Explorer XLS

    Have a look at the fuse first The fuse must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. To ease your search for the window fuse, it should be around 30 amps.

    Fuses blow. If it has blown more then twice in a row, it is a problem. If not, I wouldn't be concerned. Could of just met its life. If it blows twice or more in a row, there is an electrical issue.

    Reverse lights fuse blew

    check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
    Good luck

    Blew a fuse for my power windows looked in both boxes under dash and under hood looked in manual does not show a number or location

    on my 1997 explorer the power window and door lock fuse is under the hood. fuse box driver side, passenger side of fuse box, 5th or 6th from front of vehicle. I now use fuses with LED in them so when they go out they light up bright red. easy to see even in full sunlight. cost about 3 dollars more but worth it. 30 Amp fuse.

    Electrical problems

    well i dont know if this may help at all but my boyfriend had the same thing almost with his explorer. He had now window power or lights inside of the car. He found out that it was a fuse that was unmarked was blown. Make sure you check every fuse in the box on the driver side. There was one listed as lights and windows but it wasnt that one. It was actually a totally different fuse. If this does help im sorry. I'm not and expert. This was just from experience.
