The power windows are protected by 30A circuit breaker 43. If no battery voltage is read on the R/W wire, the circuit breaker has failed open.
The drain traced to FUSE 14 could be caused by any of the interior lights not switching off, including the luggage compartment light.

Battery goes flat on my beetle


3 things to check: 1) Is your battery good? Have it "load tested" at a parts store for free. It's a definitive test whether your battery should be replaced or not.
2) Is the alternator output good enough to charge the battery? That can also be tested at the store. Or if you have a voltmeter, you can check it. With car running the alternator should be showing a minimum of 13.5-14 volts, measured at the battery terminals.
3) Is something draining battery overnight? A dome light, trunk light, glovebox light, under hood light, sticking power seat switch, something like that. If you see nothing, try this to check battery drain. Take off the negative cable and wait 15 minutes to make sure computer is in sleep mode. Now attach the test light between the cable and the battery post. If there is a drain, the test light will light brightly. Pull fuses out one at a time till light goes off. That is the circuit with the battery drain.You'll have to identify the circuit and find the source of the drain.
Good luck.

My 1995 Taurus Ghia has a constant current drain (leak) of ~ 1A. Temporarily removing fuse #2 (Juction Box) fom the Engine Bay box, reduces the drain to ~ 0.02 A. Removing fuse # 27 (battery saver) from...


Hello, Seems you have done some good work in tracing the problem. It could be a bad Diode in the Alternator, disconnect the plug on the Alternator and see if the Voltage drops(engine off). But the tracing of the problem to the Power Window circuit and Interior lights merits further action.

You need to disconnect the Window motor, switches and so forth until you find the grounded part. There were some soldering issues in the Window motors when they were manufactured. The Drivers door has the additional Relay inside if you have the Auto-power feature

Your Battery needs to be fully charged and showing 13.2V-13.6V or the Battery is weak. Ford Anti-theft can even interrupt the Alternator from charging while you are driving. The Battery should be checked, but of course you still have the grounding issue which ran down the Battery for maybe Years.

I hope you found my solution very helpful in solving your problem.

Need diagram 2001 vw new beetle fuse panel. When I bought it did not have panel cover........thanks! problem with washer pump book says #1 10 amp small fuse and #24 20 amp no where on fuse panel says #'s


The #1 fuse is in the upper left corner of the fuse panel, actually its the top fuse in the third row down, but row No. 1 and No. 2 do not have any fuses in the upper left corner. There are a total of 23 fuses in the upper most section. Fuse #24 is the first fuse in the lower section of fuses (upper left corner of that section as well.

The block diagram for the fuse panel is also contained in Section 3.2 of your Owner's Manual. The fuses are numbered in each section from top to bottom starting in the upper left. Fuses 1 thru 23 in the top section, fuses 24 thru 44 in the bottom section which consists of three columns.

Car doesn't start


Hello;
I believe you have a drain on your battery. Sometimes it can be very aggravating to locate. Easiest way I know to figure it out is to first get a digital ampmeter that reads low amperage. Take off the positive cable and attach the ampmeter in line. You will probably see an amperage reading. Go to your interior fuse panel and one at a time pull a fuse. Look at the amp meter and continue to pull and reinstall a fuse until the reading changes. Once the reading changes you can read what circuit you have disabled. Then you can start your trace from there. I have seen glove box lights and trunk lights that stay on and will run a battery down in a couple of days.
Hope this helps;

Good battery not holding charge


there could be a draw in the electrical system. with key out of ignition and all doors closed. disconnect neg battery cable and put test lite in between cable and battery terminal, if it lites up strong, then there is a draw down. to trace the draw, leaving test lite hooked up, remove interior lite fuse. then remove one fuse at a time(returning previous fuse to proper place) until test lite goes out. that is the circuit that is drawing down. you pull the interior lite fuse first cause door will most likely be open to ck rest of fuses. hope this helps
