Although time consuming, still the easiest way to find your problem is to pull each fuse, till the draw disappears. If you don't have a volt meter, you can pull one fuse (or circut breaker) at a time and wait to see if battery has remained charged during the time it would normally take to become discharged. This will put you on the right track, at which point you need to determine exactly what system(s) that fuse serves, then test each of those components and their controls, modules etc.In your case, since you already are having a window problem, I would pull that breaker first. Pull large fuses last (such as the one that goes to the alternator, since that circut kills too many sub-systems and will mislead you. Before beginning testing, have the battery checked for proper voltage and also have it "load tested" to make sure it is in good condition, as a defective battery will often appear to have the same symptoms as a system drain! (new, does not mean good, only means new)

My power windows and wipers stopped working on my 1995 ford explorer


Your wiper system and your power windows share several different circuits and components including the Battery Saver Relay, The Inadvertent Power Relay and the Generic Electronic Module. Each of these circuits need to be tested individually to determine the location of the failure. Chances are that one repair will fix both your power windows and your wipers. However, locating the actual cause is going to be the tough part and wil require some considerable skills in diagnosing automotive electrical systems.

If you think you can handle it yourself and you have the testing equipment necessary to diagnose the circuits, I can guide you through it.

Battery going dead. shows check engine light


If you battery is going dead and the check engine light is on then you alternator is going out. Heres what to do, replace the battery and have the charging system check by a local repair shop. If you alternator is bad it will cause the battery to go bad as well, so testing the vehicle with a dead battery will not bring back any accurate results. An altornator is in charge of keeping you'r battery charged to sustain enough power for you vehicle. If you replace the battery and the problem persist, then you have a short or current draw in the system causing the battery to drain. If thats the case go and see a specialist and have them do an electrical diagnosis.

Hope this Helps!

Rover 420 diesel battery keeps going flat


looks like you have something draining the battery (something electrical staying on) disconnect your battery negative terminal and connect a test light between the battery post and the wire clamp if the light comes on you have battery drain (make sure interior light is out when testing) you now need to go through all elctrical systems to trace the reason why ( check boot light goes out first this was a favorite cause)

SHORTED OUT MY ELECTRICAL SYSTEM?


CHECK THE MAIN FUSE LINK NEAR BATTERY AND WORK YOUR WAY BACK. TOUCHING THE AMPS POWER CABLE TO ANY GROUND SENDS A 12 VOLT SPIKE THROUGH THE ENTIRE CAR. HARD TO SAY WHICH SYSTEMS COULD OF HAD A REACTION FROM THE SURGE OF POWER. ALWAYS PUT A FUSE WITHIN 1 FOOT OF BATTERY POSITIVE SIDE.
