Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
For the last couple of days I have been trying to get my power windows to work. I was installing a brand new radio(I do it all the time in cars) but this time I messed around a got a spark from the 12vot. Well it burned the radio fuse so I changed that. Then I see that my power windows do not work now. I have checked all fuses and relays they are all good. I decided to run a wire straight from the battery to the lightblue/black wire in the Master switch. Well the Windows started working then but that connection is a constant so it will drain my battery. I have a two part question. The first question is, What happened for the power supply to be cut off from the master switch? My second question is, Can I connect my new 12 volt wire to any other acc wire in the car to keep the windows working?
You can use a test light to check any fuse without having to pull the fuse for visual inspection. Ground the test light lead and use the probe to touch the little indents on top of fuse (these are test ports). A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of the fuse. A blown fuse will only light one side of the fuse. If the fuse's element has snapped apart, the second side of the fuse will not have power.
As for hooking onto another accessory wire, I would be careful of that: the windows usually use a 30 amp circuit breaker. You would have to tap into a high amperage circuit. The extra load from the windows might be too much.

The main reason for this concern, especially if the door is used quite often and/or the vehicle has higher mileage is a break in the wiring going from the drivers door to the body. If you access this area by pulling the protective rubber back, shine a flashlight on these wires and look for a break (open circuit). look for shiny spots from the open copper wire. The stress from the door opening and closing is what causes the break and often you will find more than one broken wire. It will usually be a heavier gauge wire that doesn't flex as easily. Good luck, if you need more info, please ask.
