Question about 1995 Mercury Sable
The power windows went down in the back, but won't go back up. Where do i look under the hood for the relay switch.
Its not a relay. More than likely it's the main switch in the driver's door. All power to the windows goes through it. The circuit is a bit confusing, but if you look at a diagram closely, you will see that the main switch is where all the power runs through. The motors are DC and go in each direction by having the polarity reversed on them depending on which way you rock the switch. That's what makes the circuit confusing. Power and ground is routed to each side of the switch. When you rock it one way, that power and ground go to the motor in one way. When you rock it the other way, the power and ground is reversed.

SOURCE: power windows went out
The power window system operates under the control of the accessory delay relay. For early build vehicles, the GEM will energize the relay to provide power to the power window system. For late build vehicles, the ICM(instrument cluster module) will energize the relay to provide power to the power window system.
Now it does not state the build date cut off in shop manual. So if it is an early build Fuse No.6(60amp) in Battery junction box feeds a circuit breaker that mounts under the hood on the fender apron at the firewall on driver's side(wire colors will be BK/WH and YE/LG).Then it feeds the switch side of the accessory delay relay in the Central junction box. Fuse 17(15amp) in the central junction box feeds the switch side of this relay.
The late build system is the same except instead of the circuit breaker on the left fender apron it uses fuse no. 47(30amp) in the battery junction box.
Now you can go to this website and pick owner guide on left task bar,input your vehicle info and pick get owner guide. Then pick the 6th owner guide printing and go to page 210 for the accessory delay relay location. You will see all the fuse information starts on page 207 thur 216.
