1999. Why does it smell inside as though something is burning?


If you smell burning electrical then likely you have a short that is overheating some wiring. If that is the case, then you should track down the source ASAP. Are all electricals working properly, heater motor? Any aftermarket stereo systems or amps installed?

Need to know how to fix the windows in the stereo in my 1996 Lincoln Continental.all the fuses are fine, I don't know what to do next


None of the windows work ? You say fuses are good , which fuses ? Did you pull them all out an look at them ? Did you check for power - battery voltage at the window switches ? There is a driver door module involved !
  • Power Windows Completely Inoperative
  • Supply open or shorted.
  • Ground open.
  • Window regulator control switch inoperative.
  • Circuits open or shorted.
  • Window regulator electric drive inoperative.
  • Driver door module.
  • PERFORM driver door module self test. Service DTCs. If no DTCs are retrieved, GO to Pinpoint Test C .
If you don't know electrical circuit testing suggest you take to a AES certified repair shop ! If you plan to do this anyway your going to need a wiring diagram , wiring harness layout , volt ohm meter !

Car battery keeps dying


Myguess is that you have an electrical short which is causing a drain on the battery. The way to check this is to get a 12 v test light. Unhook the negative side of the battery. Hook the test light up between the negative battery post and the battery cable. If the light comes on, You have a short/drain. To find where the short is, you leave the test light hooked up. Then you start pulling fuses until the light goes out. However, your car stereo needs to be completely unhooked before you do this test because most stereos have a constant electrical source so that the clock stays accurate and the memory stays active so your programed stations don't get lost.

Stereo, electric windows, and convertable top will not operate. It seems that they are all connected to each other, what could cause this?


Take a look at the map of the fuse box. The Windows fuse is directly above the fuse for the radio. They're probably shorting. No big mystery.

The battery keeps dying on my 1991 accord i have already changed the alternator out ?


It sounds like you may have a short in the electrical system. Something is causing a draw on the battery.
Have you recently installed any "add ons" or a new stereo? If not, if you know how to use a test light email me back and I will talk you through how to diagnose which circuit is the culprit? If you recently made changes to your alarm or stereo oull the fuse and see if battery remains vharged.

I want to remove passenger side rear door panel because window is down and won't stay up


Hi,
Hi!!

Here is a little information on how window regulator works. Also step by step instruccions on how to remove and install the window glass.

Door Glass & Regulator Power Windows
Diagnosis & Testing
When the rear window lockout feature is enabled, the circuit is open and no voltage is supplied to the rear window switches. When the feature is not enabled, the circuit is connected to battery positive voltage. If this circuit is shorted to ground when the lockout feature is not enabled, the PWR WDO circuit breaker may cycle continuously OFF/ON until, either the lockout switch is pressed to open the circuit, or the circuit breaker is permanently damaged. All windows may be partially or totally inoperative while the fault is present.
Inspect for aftermarket devices which could affect the operation of the system. Inspect the easily accessible or visible system components for obvious damage or conditions which could cause the symptom. Faulty electrical connections or wiring may be the cause of intermittent conditions.
Removal & Installation
Window Motor & Regulator
  1. Position window approximately half way down in the door.
  2. Remove the interior trim panel.
  3. Remove the water deflector.
  4. Tape the window to door frame to prevent it from moving.
  5. Remove the three front door window regulator motor screws.
  6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the window regulator motor.
  7. Remove front side door window regulator motor.
  8. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Window Switch
Front
  1. Remove the front door pull cup screws and pull cup from the front door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the front door power window control switch.
  3. Remove the front door window control switch using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Rear
  1. Remove the rear door pull cup from the rear door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the power window control switch.
  3. Remove the rear door window control switch from the pull cup using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the power window control switch to release the power window control switch retainer.
  4. Remove the power window control switch from the rear door pull cup.
  5. To install, reverse removal procedure.

1995 GMC Suburban. Transmission slips between third and fourth


Depending on where you connected power to the stereo from on the fuseblock you could be messing up the tranny. Refer to the manual versus where the stereo wires are, Worst case, disconnect power to the stereo to see if that's the cause of the problem.

Electric windows go down on its own without key in ignition


Some year models of MKZ, maybe other Ford products too have problem with windows going down when the lock button is pressed on the ignition key. These models have a safety feature that when you press and hold for two second one of the buttons (look in your manual) on the ignition key the windows and sunroof will open. I was told by the dealer there is a problem with the receiver in car.
