    All of those symptoms are motor-related. I'm thinking low voltage to CPU being dragged lower with motor load. What is the battery voltage with vehicle running?

Anybody ever think of maybe a bad ignition switch. Many times a bad contact will cause a loss of power to interior functions, BTW solution 1 on this list is a hack

Yes I found a temp /permanent solution. All fuses were ok. What is happening is that the (HOT) positive side of the battery is not being supplied to the fuse box. If you take out the relay / 30amp fuse for the power windows and if you dare put a positive feed to the contacts where the fuse inserts, the windows and fan will work. I just connected a hot to the wire that feeds that fuse. The problem with whet I did was that the windows and fan work when there is no key in the car. So for a permanent fix you need to find a switched positive lead and connect it. My solution is ok because it is still fused. Hope this helps.

Interior lights not working


Sounds like you have a bad fuse, and or maybe a bad relay in your dash panels. Start by looking up the fuses that affect your sunroof, then work out to the other issues. On my Ford, there is a bad relay that affects my power windows, my radio, and my interior lights. Sometimes more than one fuse is related to a system, so check all the fuses before trying relays.

Why 97 mitsubishi glant tail light fuse broken


The 10A DEDICATED fuse 12 in the engine compartment relay box feeds power to numerous circuits: the ABS-ECU, the LF power window switch, the radio, the key reminder switch, the door lights, the cruise control, the ECM, the transaxle control module, the trunk room light, the motorized antenna, the combination meter, the clock, the sunroof switch and dome light, and the garage door opener. A short in any of these can blow that fuse

Abs,air bag light on,disengaes my speedometer,ac and power windows


I had the same problem after someone tried to steal my 2000 Dodge Ram truck. I replaced the ignition switch and key tumbler, after that, when I turned the key, the key in ignition chime came on, but when I turned the key, it wouldn't crank, turned out to be the 50amp run fuse under the hood, replaced thar, started right up! But then had the abs and airbag lights on, no speedometer, and no power windows or blower motor! Traced that to the 30amp ign/run fuse under the hood. Didn't look bad, but when I took the little plastic cover off the fuse, I could see the hairline break in the link! Replaced that, and now I'm back to normal! Hope this helps someone out there!

Check the wires that go to your wheels for the ABS. They are probably bare from stones hitting them, and shorting out the system.

Suburban 1999 abs light on dash on and doesn't work the a/c fan


If it is happening when you change the AC and Defroster Modes as Stated above, You have a Wire inside the Dash in this Location that has Shorted and is Grounding itselt to the Housing for the HVAC Controls. This could cause a fire. I would pull the HVAC Unit and try and Locate the Faulty wire Behind it.

ABS light comes on 97 Jimmy


The Airbag and ABS are separate systems and un-related, the speedo is related to the ABS light, I think if you run a self test on the system computer there will be a trouble code for the transmission speed sensor, the output of this sensor is used by the ABS and the speedometer. The airbag is most likely a defective rotating contact under the steering wheel, we techs call it a clock-spring contact because of it's shape, it allows the connection from the steering column to the airbag. CAUTION! If you want to change out this contact the steering wheel needs to be pulled, follow factory recommendations on dis-arming the airbag, it can be very dangerous if you don't.

I have a 97 intrepid the abs light and the aIRBAG LIGHT IS on which causes the ac and power windows not to work


I recently purchased a 1997 intrepid at a great price because it had this same problem.
The problem is in the ignition switch. If you turn your fan on high and push on the key with the palm of your hand, you will hear the
Fans start running, ABS and Airbag light will turn off. At some point, the problem will return but is corrected again with the push of
The key. Annoying, YES but not worth spending any money on.
The auto dealer repair shop freeked out when I told them of the problem, they did not beleive me
until I stoped in one day and showed them the
Temporary fix
