1996 Jimmy Power windows


I seem to have a short in the power windows circuit. The 30amp circuit breaker gets very warm. When I test the circuit with an amp meter there is current when there is no switches being touched.

Can you help?

I suggest you start unplugging each component one at a time and retest for current, this could possibly be a switch or motor shorting out.... or carefully inspect the harness within the rubber tubing between the door and the chassy
hope this helps

95 4 runner power window fuse location

There is a 30amp circuit breaker. They reset automatically after a while. When the motors start to go bad, they don't raise the windows fast, and they can throw the circuit breaker. Figure out which motors are struggling and replace them.

The heat and power windows dont work in my 1990 dodge spirit

It looks like the power windows are on a 30amp circuit breaker and the blower is on a 30amp fuse. Both are powered thru the key switch so if those circuits have no power it could be the key switch.

Does a 1987 gmcjimmy s-15 have a power window relay ot any relays at all cuz my power windows stoped working it runs a 30 amp circut breaker can the circut breaker go bad?

Anything can go bad, but to my knowledge circuit breakers seldom do. If you have a test light, pull the circuit breaker and probe both terminals for a power signal, with the key on. One terminal should show voltage with key on. If not, check the power distribution box for a blown maxi-fuse, or the wiring from that box to your fuse panel.
BTW, no, no relays are in the window circuit. So if the circuit breaker has power to it, put it back in and check for power on the driver's door master switch-one wire on the master should have voltage with key on. If no hot wire to the master switch, check inside the door openings for a broken wire. If you do have one hot wire there. check the power windows ground-the ground wire for the power windows originates at the master switch and goes back into the cabin to a nearby ground. Put one lead of the test light on the hot wire (key on), and probe the ground terminal at the master switch-if your ground is good, the test light will light up. If the ground is lost, no light. Check for a broken ground wire in the door opening, and/or find the ground and see if it is bad. If the master switch has a hot wire and a good ground wire, replace the master switch.

Reset circuit Breakers for 2001 Pontiac Bonneville

The 30amp circuit breaker for the power windows is in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
But it resets itself if it blows. Thats why its a circuit breaker instead of a fuse.
From there the power goes to both front door control modules then to the door switches.

The car with the problem is a 1994 Olds Ciera S four door. No power to any of the power windows. I have confirmed that if I take a battery and hook it to the driver side window controls, then all the cars...

pecoslarry, One of the most common problems with power windows is the wires coming from the door to the vehicle. Seeing that you have confirmed that the windows work with a different power source tells me that you should cut the rubber boot, that goes from the door to the vehicle, open and check for any broken wires. This happens because the drivers door is the one opened most often and the wires get bent back and forth until they break. You seem to have done everything else that I would have suggested so try this and No there is no inline fuse. Good luck with this.

1996 Chevy Blazer Circuit Breaker

You can use a fuse temporarily in place of the circuit breaker until you find a suitable place to purchase the circuit breaker. Advanced Auto parts has them in stock at most locations. If you don't have one of those nearby then try a Grainger catalog. Or even a Harbor Freight online. Hope this helps. Good luck
