Question about 2003 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Darn power windows

I have checked all the fuses in the engine and inside the truck. I checked 2 crazy big fuses in the engine, then proceeded to pour myself into the space under the steering column to check #17 and #23. Any suggestions before I (sigh) turn it over to the dealer?

Other than buying a vehicle new or used from a dealer,
I certainly would never go to one for service
Have you no local shop you have used for decades,
that does good work & for less than a dealer
All you need is a wiring diagram & walk down the problem
with your volt meter.

If everything keeps going like that then it sounds like its a problem with the onboard computer. The computer controls all the guages and would explain why they all fail at the same time.

SOURCE: My cruise control is not working, no lights come

If the CHML ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) is working correctly, the next thing to check is the Cruise Control Deactivation switch on the brake pedal.

This is different than the Brake Pedal Position ( BPP ) Switch which is for the stop lamps, and the shift interlock.

The Cruise Control deactivation switch, and the on / set switch are the only external inputs to the Cruise Control, the PCM uses the VSS ( Vehicle Speed Sensor ) to read, set and adjust the speed ( no more vacuum items on the 04+ MY trucks )

I recently switched a master power window switch,,bad ground,,and only the drivers window worked I also had a draw on the battery which turned out to be a short in the radio which had displayed and on and...

radio can get power from 2 sources.. the memory wire and the ignition wire(key-on)..if these are causing a dead battery after sitting for a bit..without much cost you can get a battery cut off switch that will cut all power to the car..only thing is.. all the memory in the car gets wiped out each time you shut it off. these are made for big rvs to keep the main starting battery isolated from the static batteries that run the rv equipment..

Is there fuse on the inside of ford windstar for the horn

Front Windowss

1995-1998 Windstar - Engine compartment fusebox / distribution center: fuse letter "G"

1999-2003 Windstar - fuse #'s 106 (passenger side) and 113 (drivers side) in the ENGINE COMPARTMENT fusebox control the power window motors.

Rear Windows

1999-2003 Windstar - fuse #'s 18 in the PASSENGER - INSIDE fusebox control the power window motors.
The owner's manual identifies 2 fuses, #34 for the drivers side, #40 for the passenger's side. The Fuse panel is located under the dash, driver's side, close to the side wall. Squeeze the fuse cover plate to remove it and use the fuse puller on the underside of the fuse cover plate to remove the fuse. #34 and #40 are 30 amp fuzes and adjacent to each other

You have two fuse boxes in your car. One in the engine bay and one under the dash on the driver's side of the car.

For the power windows, here are the fuses you should check: 15, 37, 28, 26, 24, 25. Those fuses are all in the engine bay fuse box.
#15 is a big fuse, so if you have a volt meter, you can see if there is 12V to body ground on each bolt that holds it in place.

I dont know where the fuse is located for the power windows and dome lights.......

There are 2 fuse boxes / fuse panels in nearly every Ford product: one directly above the driver's left foot (when the driver is actually sitting in the driver's seat). The other is inside the engine compartment, on the right side - contains high current fuses.
The window fuses should be in the fuse box inside the car. It appears that fuses #10 (30AMP), #11 (15AMP) and #26 (10AMP) are the only relevant fuses associated with the power window circuit for this vehicle, according to the Ford wiring diagram. Hope this helps.

I think replacing fuse #26 should fix both the windows and the dome light.

All 4 of my power windows stopped working, and i can't find anything about a power window fuse in my manual

Power window usually don't have a fuse but an automatically resetting breaker. If all four windows stopped working at the same time check the body control module that is what manages the power windows. Good luck.

Power windon fuse

There are really 2 fuses that control your power windows and they are located in the power distribution box inside your engine compartment. If all your windows aren't working you may have other problems though. In the number 6 position in the box (see picture below) is a 30 amp fuse that fuse controls your drivers side window. The fuse in the number 10 position (30 amp) controls the passenger and vent windows but also is the fuse for the radio. I hope this helps a little anyway and good luckclifford224_92.jpg

The windows will not roll down and the check engine light is on...what is going on?

Your windows may be a fuse. It should be in the fuse box inside the car. Take your car to Autozone and they will read your check engine light. They do this for free and they can tell you why your light is on. I would do this asap, just in case it is a big problem. This will save you money. Hope this helps.

Both windows are screwed! What can I do to troubleshoot it? ...Please..? :)

Probably popped a fuse. Check in the engine compartment in the power control center (big fuse and relay box). Look at the diagram and find the one for power windows.
