Better check and see if a wire got crimped or severed when they put in the new windshield. Sounds like a possibility.

I was told that the bulb blew out when this happened to my car and you have to remove the dashboard to replace it. As far as the heat and air I had to replace the blower motor and the problem was solved. Buy one of those $20 car manuals, that's how i usually figure out whats wrong.

If all power devices stopped at the same time you may have a bad fuse link. Since it is rare for all the fuses blowing at once and you already checked them. Start at your fuse links before assuming something expensive.

It sounds like a fuse or loose connector. I would contact the company that replaced the windshield and and ask what caused the problem, they may repair it for you if it was there fault.

Power windows stopped working and dome lights stay on. Power locks work only with the "clicker" but not on driver door


Look under the hood fuse no. 12 should be for power windows. Or maybe something like a bad ground wire in drivers door harness.

2000 Chrysler Neon interior lights wont turn on.


Time delay relay is the relay that allows the interior dome light to remain on for a brief time when you enter or leave the car.Usually the lights will remain on for a few minutes and then dim down and finally off.

It sounds like the daytime running lights were put on that circuit and the relay removed to keep them on constantly.
This sounds like a time and material repair that a shop will have to do. Tracing the wiring installed by the previous owner may be required to find out what was done.

Ford explorer winsheld wipers and power windows and dome lights dont work


  • You need to open up the drivers side door and look at that harness that stretches between the door and the door frame. Inside that harness are the wires for the electronics in the cabin and then some.

  • Over time those wires get pinched and crack and break. So you need to splice the casing open the long ways ( or slide the casing for the harness one way and then the other) and inspect the wiring. Your looking for broke, split, rusted, bulging or otherwise negated wiring. The boots on either side may need to come off to look up inside for broke wires as well. Usually it's pretty evident which wires are messed up but sometimes you have to do a little digging.


  • When you find the broke wire[s] splice some new wire[s] in and use electric tape to re-insulate.


  • This is a common problem across the board with many car manufacturers and repairing the harness almost always is the fix in a situation such as yours.

  • Hope this helps..

"REAR ACCESS OPEN" LIGHT ON INSTRUMENT PANEL


inside the doorway will be contact that must be clean and unobstructed to work. Check it and see if something got caught in it. Assuming it is not faullty, this should correct the problem. It is likely that the false sensing will keep the wiper from working since it shouldn't be on with the door open. If the sensor looks okay, you should have it tested to see if it is defective.

When I shut off the ignition the radio and dome light stayed on


I have the same truck. The thing is designed so that the radio and dome light and even the windows will operate for a time which should expire immediately when you open the door. Try turning on the radio with engine running and then turn off the engine and just sit there and the radio should still play. Try the power windows - they too should go up and down. Finally open the drivers door and that should immediately kill the radio, windows and dome light. If it does not - you will need to report that problem to your dealer since the problem is in that timer feature which is part of the vehicles "brain". Sorry I can't be more helpful.
