    That's Amazing but everything else is working and checking out would i need to change the fuse box? its some big power connection that is prohibiting this from not working.

    And would this mean that something is burnt out behind the fuse box?

These cars are notorious for fuse box problems, you will need to test the circuits to these systems for power at the fuse box, just because th fuse looks good doesn't mean the power is going out to the systems it supplies.

1998 expedition driver window fuse or relay

If you hear the relay, you need to pull the door panel and check power at the motor. Power there replace it. No power, the wires tend to break in the rubber boot at the front of the door jam.

No power to the windows door locks or dash fuses are good is there a relay somewhere? \

Check the wiring going through the drivers door. Often it breaks inside the rubber boot that connects the door to the frame. Remove the drivers side kick panel and the door covering and use an ohmmeter to check wire continuity between the interior plugs and the plugs inside the door itself. Don't forget...a broken ground wire will do the same thing as a broken power lead.

In have a 2001 volkswagon passat and i don't know where the fuse box is. please help

On the 2001 Passat, the fuses and relays are located on the driver-side of the dash right where the door touches it. It is behind a plastic panel which can be pulled off to access the fuses. Pull off panel and there is a guide to the fuses (fuse card) and a tool for pulling them out.

Thank you for using Fixya
