Ok that's handy then because it allows you to troubleshoot two things.... first put it in reverse... does it blow out then... if not put it back in park and try one of the windows... if it doesn't blow... try another window ... when it blows you have narrowed down which circuit to trace for a short in the wiring

Back window washer stopped working but the front still does. Do not see any leakage under the car indicating hose is disconnected or broken (used to happen on my Chevy Venture quite often). What could be...


Likely, the pump/motor for the rear window (which is located under the front washer bottle is not being turned on, or is stuck for whatever reason. Remove the exit hose from the pump and blow through it with LOW pressure air to see if fluid and air exit from the rear washer fitting. Both motors are controlled directly by the Body Control Module (another computer besides the PCM) and are not fused individually. Each motor receives 12 volt power to it when commanded to run. Hope this helps!

New power window switch is not working, don't know where fuse/relay is located


usually the power windows in on a circut breaker fuse. if it blows it resets its self after cooling down. use a test light to see if you have power on any of the wires on the back of the switch. if you have power chances are you have a bad motor for the window. asuming that you replaced the front drivers side switch. if that wasn't the one you replaced say the back pass side switch odds are its the drivers side front set of switches bad. hope this helps you.

2000 vw passat blows fuse # 14 -if you unplug the comfort control module under the drivers rug the fuse won't blow


I have a 2000 passat that had issues with the comfort control module. A lot of the interior electronic features stopped working (i.e., power windows). It turned out that there is a connection in the wiring that gets corroded due to water. The wiring is external to the actual ccm box, but under the carper. I simply removed the wrapping, and re-soldered the wire. It may be that something similar is happening here and causing a short, that in turn blows the fuse.

Window, interior lights, car alarm and fuse keep on burning out


you have a short circuit or burned out wires somewhere, could be anywhere.
Try disconnecting the alarm, taking the bulb out of the interior lights, and putting in the fuse, if it blows again you know that the alarm or interior lights are not at fault, if it stays good replace the bulb and if it blows theres your faulty circuit, if it stays good then the windows are at fault.

Blowing fuses for windows on Ford Focus Station 2000 1.8


The alternator in a car have a regulator package inside it. It not only consist of the regulator, but the rectifier as well. Rectifier rectify the ac produce by the alternator into dc current. Thereby charging your battery. The regulator regulates charging of course. All these are inside the alternator. If you ever take apart one it is the hard plastic inside, which is sometimes fastened to an aluminum "heat sink" to dissipate heat. These things are made of semiconductors. When semiconductors fail they pass current both ways, therefore creating a short. The wire that broke loose probably got overheat by a failing circuit inside that regulator causing it to heat up and break loose. They just connected it back on there, but I don't blame them because they are mechanic not electronic technician, which I am one, and also a mechanic as well. These explaination may seem new to you, and infact very few mechanics know exactly how an alternator works. Specially the semiconductor inside. Try removing that wire again, and if that made the window issue dissapear, we nailed it. Changing the alternator is the solution. If you can buy just that regulator packages and rebuild you alternator by changing it, it would be much cheaper. They are just fastened in there by little screws or bolts. These are my analysis based on your information. Also operate the windows to see if a particular window makes the fuse blows. Thanx for asking a question, and I am here always ready to give you answer as accurate as possible.

Start by replacing your brake light bulbs. If it still blows the fuse, them your brake pedal switch. If it still happens then you have a shot circuit in your wiring between your fuse panel and your brake lights.
