Fuse panel is under the instrument panel to the left of the steering wheel.
These are listed in order of probability:
The fuse you are looking for is F15 (10A - red) rating. 2nd row from the right Middle(3rd) fuse.(Moonroof, Driver window, Radio)
Also check the circuit breaker C1( at the top of the 2nd row from the left.) and F2(15A -blue) 1st row from the right 2nd from the bottom.

    OK the fuse keeps blowing. How do I locate and fix the problem? Thanks

    I am assuming you are referring to the 10A fuse. Does it blow the moment you power up the ignition? (Fuses should never be replaced with the ignition on)
    If so the most probable cause is chafed wiring that is causing a short circuit. Although this does not happen too often, if there is chafing on the wiring it will be in the door itself or the loom where it passes form the body of the car into the door or a wire that has come off its connector in the door.
    A more common cause would be that the fuse pops the moment you operate the drivers window. This is a faulty window winder motor. You will have to remove the door panel to get at it. Remove all screws from the panel, starting at the bottom outer edge of the door, unclip the panel. There are clips in the panel that fit into holes in the door spaced about 3 inches apart. These clips are not visible. pull on the edge of the panel itself to release the clips. Disconnect the harness from the motor. Replace the fuse. Ignition on. Operate the window. If the fuse has not blown you have now confirmed a faulty motor. DIY repair of the motor is not advised. Listed in order of least expense: 1.Replace it with a unit from a salvage yard, 2.have it repaired by an auto electrician or 3.replace with a new unit from the agents.
    If the fuse blows when you press the button and motor disconnected you have a faulty switch.

Hi! Regarding the driver side power windows please try cleaning the contact of the control for it could be corroded causing it not to work. Regarding the radio and moon roof, please check for blown fuses and relays which can cause electrical failure. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

    Please start looking under the dash. It usually has a legend on the cover to know which is which.

    If the fuse keeps on blowing then there surely is a grounded wire which needs to be traced thoroughly.

    Please do check if there are corroded fuse sockets. If there is, please try to clear it out this can cause it to fail too.

Where is the relay located For a 1997 Lincoln Town Car moonroof relay


Been a while since I have worked on older models. But as I remember, there is no relay. There is a circuit breaker that all windows work off of. On older cars, like yours. there is a heat sink built in the motor. When the window reached a certain point, the heat sink would shut it off. A bit newer the heat sink was in the computer. On new ones, with the sun roof, the have to be programmed/set. If yours doesn't leak, leave it alone.

I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt all 4 of my power windows suddenly stopped working my moonroof still works though I checked all fuses that the manual had related to the windows they all look good am I...


I am not familiar with that particular vehicle, but mine has a relay (under the hood) which supplies power to the window switch(s). Power for ALL the windows goes through the "control panel" on the drivers door, so it is possible a poor connection or dirty contact there is creating your problem. I used WD40 to clean mine without even having to remove the switch panel. I hope this helps you track down your problem.

All 3 passenger windows will not roll down, but drivers window and moonroof open and close normally.

Shade for 93 honda wont close. window works fine. but shade is stuck


I don't know if this will work, but you can try it. If you use the manual method for closing the moonroof, or opening it, it MIGHT take the shade along with it. The following is the procedure, which you may already know.
The moonroof can be closed manually, if the control switch will not close it.
1. Remove the round plug near the rear center of the headliner.
2. Insert the moonroof wrench (from the tool kit, should be in the trunk) into the socket.
3.Turn the wrench until the moonroof seats in the closed position.
4. Replace the plug.
As I say, this MIGHT work. Hope it helps.
