There really isn't a fuse for the power windows but there is a 20 circuit breaker. It is supposed to reset itself if there is an overload but after time they get old and weak. The location of that circuit breaker is in the fuse panel inside the vehicle to the left of the steering wheel under the dash by the brake pedal. Below is a picture of the layout of the fuses by number. The circuit breaker that you want to check will be in the number 43 position. This should be in your owners manual if you have one. If you do not have an owners manual and would like a copy, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy. No worries, no cost to you for it if you need it. I hope this helps and good luck.
sudden failures are usually the blend door actuator. Unfortunately, you have to remove the dash to get the actuator out. It sits on top of the heater box in the second picture below. I have pasted the procedure below from autozone.com. Please see my tip athttp://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air . If you get stuck, please get back to me, and thanks for using FixYa.

If you have right turn signals that work it will not be a fuse as 1 fuse controls the whole circuit.
I would start by checking the bulbs and then the turn signal stalk itself.
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.
There is extensive coverage of fuses and the circuits each one protects Owners Manual.
See "Related Questions" below for sources of free online Owners Manuals for 1996+ Ford & Mercury products.
Checking & Changing A Fuse
Inside the fusebox cover is a small white plastic tool for pulling fuses out.
Inspect the center section of the fuse to determine if it has 'blown' - it will be obvious if the metal strip has melted.
Insert a replacement fuse of the same color / amperage protection by simply pressing it into the fuse-slot.
Checking a fuse
Generally, if a fuse is 'blown' you can tell by looking at the fuse. Look at the wire looking thing in the top on the fuse. It'll look kind of broken or burned or just otherwise messed up. If you're not sure what a good fuse looks like, go to an auto store and look at a new fuse. Then look at your fuses and compare appearances.
Getting the engine compartment Power Distribution box cover off
There are actually two separate covers. One is for the circuit breakers and one for the fuses. There's a tab in the center that you squeeze together and it pops off. In the cover you'll find spare fuses and a puller. If you still need to get the breaker cover off, there's a tab on the corner marked "lift". With the other cover removed, you can then unsnap the tab and wiggle it out.
Go to the dealer service dept and ask them to photocopy the diagram out of their service manual for you. They should do this for you with no problem.

Under the dash just to the left of the steering column.
Underneath the drivers side kick-board / panel underneath the steering column.
One fuse box is located under the hood by the battery. Another is under the left side of the dash. Carl
Not real sure for this model but I think there is a fuse box by the battery under the hood and another one under the left side of the dash. Carl
power fuses are next to battery in a black looking contaner there is a lid that has to be removed. the regular fuses are located underneaath the dashboard on the drivers side above your left foot... if you are sitting in the van
there are two fuse boxes, one is in the engine compartmente near de battery, the other one is under de driver side near the steering column.
It depends on the fuse. Most of the fuses in use today are small plug-in plastic devices. Simply grab them with needle nose pliers or a fusepuller and pull them straight out. They are color coded as to ampacity. There are two fuse blocks in the Windstar. One is in the engine room by the battery. The other is under the left side of the dash. Enjoy.... Carl

Click on the link below Click on Owner Guides The owners manual ( which includes the fuse box diagram ) can be viewed on-line The interior fuse panel is located under the dash panel on the left side wall near the driver side of the vehicle. it is enclosed with a black plastic cover. The power distribution unit fuse panel is a black plastic box located in the engine area near the battery, the battery should be disconnected before replacing fuses in the power distribution unit according to the owner's manual. The fuse box is located on the drivers side about half way up from the floor, it is mounted on the side and is made of black plastic roughly 4 inches wide and 6 inches high. The cover just snaps on and off.
Check if there is a circuit breaker button under the dash. It might not be labeled. Look under the dash near the steering column. Push in the button if it is sticking out. Check fuses. See if the roof and windows are on the same fuse.
I have a 94 Sonoma and to locate the turn signal flasher, inside, under dash, on left side is a plastic sound protector, mine had 3 screws holding it up, drop this down and straight in you will see a 1" round thing - this is the flasher.
The turn signal flasher is located under dash panel, right side of steering column.
The fuse panel is located on the left side of the instrument panel. To gain access to the panel, pivot access door downward. The hazard flasher is located under dash panel, left side of steering column. The turn signal flasher is located under dash panel, right side of steering column.
