03 aurora were is power windows fuse

No fuse, there is a circuit breaker in rear fuse box. The rear fuse box seems to be under the rear seat cushion.
An easier way might be to check wire harness on hinge side of driver door. Probably has a protective rubber boot covering, pull the covering back far enough to check proper wire color. Orange wire is voltage for power windows, hot all the time. Use a test light to probe that wire for voltage. If voltage, the CB isn't the problem. You also need ground, black wire.
Sometimes those wires may break because you open and shut the driver door so much.

Wondering if there is more than one fuse for operating power windows on a 1994 ford explorer sport

check under the bonnet in engine bay for a plastic box with relays in it. Check the voltage going to the sockets that the relay sits in when you push the power window button. Use a cheap 12 V probe (google it or go to a car shop like repco to get one) it lights up when + 12 V found. there may be fuses there as well.

Help: 1994 Toyota land Cruiser: left turn signal works but when I turn the right turn signal on it blows the 7.5 amp fuse disabling the turn signals.

Hi Steven
Do the simple stuff first. Check the obvious points at which the circuit may get shorted. Light Bulbs and sockets. Wires in the boot or rear lamp area. Down the steering column. Follow harness to front then rear. Age of vehicle and how it's used may provide clues. Trailer Connector Wires & Connections to harness.
(Where could they Link Together)
If that fails
You need to isolate each circuit that is blowing a fuse and trace the fault to a location. Probably when you find the fault (ground short or wires shorted together) it will become obvious that the two separate circuits are linked.
So... start with the right turn signal

Finding Shorts It's a pain.... but.... here's the process!
Remove the Fuses that keep blowing.
Make up a long lead from the battery positive terminal.
Say 4 meters.
Add a cheap 5A or 10A circuit breaker in the lead wire.
Make a probe tip on the end of wire. (needle, pin. nail)
This saves you going through many fuses.
The circuit breaker simply resets when it cools.
The best way to locate the short is to Note the wire colour code (or use iPhone to take photo).
Supply power via the made up jumper & circuit breaker to the suspect circuit wire to prove that it blows the circuit breaker.
Then.... split the circuit in two...
Half way down the vehicle (say front door step) Lift the plastic trim off and find those colour coded wires.
Prove these are the wires by pushing sharp probe through the insulation. Circuit breaker blows....
Cut the wires. Try Rear wires vs Front wires and Determine if the short is in the Front section or the Rear section.
Then use the same process over again on the section which is faulty (shorting) Divide in two. until you narrow the short location down.
Keep in mind that the short could suddenly disapear if you get close & simply move the section with the bare (shorted) wire which touches the chassis or another wire.
Slip some heat shrink tubing over these cut wires and resolder them later. This is better than crimp terminals which may cause problems later.
Good Luck

All power windows don't work

You may have to keep looking for another broken wire. To the driver's master switch, a tan wire looks like the hot wire (feed) for the switch. And a black wire is ground, originating at the master switch and going back into the cabin with the wire harness, and then to a nearby ground source, probably behind the left kick panel. If you pull the master switch off, key on,, check for power on the tan wire terminal of the switch connector. Use a test light or a voltmeter. Now if you have a hot wire on the connector, put one volt meter lead on the hot wire terminal and the negative lead onto the black wire terminal. If ground is good, voltmeter will read battery voltage. If ground is lost, voltmeter will show nothing. Same with test light-check for a hot wire with key on. If yes, put test light lead on hot wire and use probe to touch ground-if ground is good, tester will light up. Alternatively, you could remove the left kick panel and check the security of the ground to frame there.
The only place I know for a wiring diagram would be a repair manual. Haynes manuals are about the best (about $25 at parts stores), short of a factory service manual for big bucks.
If still no luck with windows, and no hot wire with key on, pull the circuit breaker for the windows on the fuse panel under dash. With key on,. one of those terminals for the circuit breaker should show power. Ground a test light and probe both terminals to check for power. If no power there, check under hood fuses or fuse links that feed the fuse box. If CB has power available, well, that's the feed for the tan wire-sounds like either the tan wire or the black ground wire may have a break. If power to switch, check ground wire.
As a last resort, try a new circuit breaker if powered at CB terminal but nothing at driver's switch. If power is to switch on tan wire, and ground is working, consider that you may have gotten a defective master switch-not likely, but known to happen.

Does a 1987 gmcjimmy s-15 have a power window relay ot any relays at all cuz my power windows stoped working it runs a 30 amp circut breaker can the circut breaker go bad?

Anything can go bad, but to my knowledge circuit breakers seldom do. If you have a test light, pull the circuit breaker and probe both terminals for a power signal, with the key on. One terminal should show voltage with key on. If not, check the power distribution box for a blown maxi-fuse, or the wiring from that box to your fuse panel.
BTW, no, no relays are in the window circuit. So if the circuit breaker has power to it, put it back in and check for power on the driver's door master switch-one wire on the master should have voltage with key on. If no hot wire to the master switch, check inside the door openings for a broken wire. If you do have one hot wire there. check the power windows ground-the ground wire for the power windows originates at the master switch and goes back into the cabin to a nearby ground. Put one lead of the test light on the hot wire (key on), and probe the ground terminal at the master switch-if your ground is good, the test light will light up. If the ground is lost, no light. Check for a broken ground wire in the door opening, and/or find the ground and see if it is bad. If the master switch has a hot wire and a good ground wire, replace the master switch.

2004 buick park avenue passenger windows and mirrors do not work

They look good, what does that mean, you tested them and voltage is present to the window motor and mirror? The easiest way to test is with a 12 volt probing test light. they cost about $5 for the cheapest ones.

Power Windows, mirrors and locks do not work on the drivers side. Wondering if this could be a fuse.

{: ) The driver door module (or driver door switch) serves as the master switch for the driver to gain control of the windows, mirrors, and doorlocks. Yes its possible that a fuse could be open. Check out the DDM fuse 10amps at rear fuseblock, check out also the LT DOORS circuit breaker 25amps on the same fuseblock. If these circuit protections are okay, you need to remove the driver door switch assembly and verify if the door switch terminals have power and ground, Probe on the terminals of the two orange wires for +12volts and probe on the black wire for -negative ground.
If power is present, then the next thing to check will be the driver door module itself, although not that easy. If you're lucky enough to find another switch of the same configuration and known to be working, you can swap it. If it works, then you know what to replace. If it doesn't, you could be having some wiring issues on that area.
A scan tool diagnostic test is a better option. It can tell if the driver door module is communicating, if it is giving proper signals, which lines could be possibly faulty. If the module is communicating, you can try reprogramming the door switch. If not successful, you may need to replace and reprogram the new module. So goodluck.

None of my electric windows work. Checked the fuse. Could it be a relay?

There is no relay, and there is no fuse for the power window circuit, there is a 30 amp circuit breaker in the fuse panel under the dash and the circuit breaker should be marked WDO on the fuse panel.

First check to see if there is power from the 30 amp circuit breaker to the master window switch on the driver door, and if power is getting through the master window switch.

If there is power to and through the master window switch (use a test light or a power probe would the best tool for the job), then there is most likely a broken wire inside of the weather boot that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the wires run in from the door through the inside of the weather boot and then through a hole on the body of the vehicle that is located behind the driver side kick panel, and the wires should be inspected from the wire connector behind the driver side kick panel out to the master window switch on the driver door for any broken wires. If you do find any broken wires be certain that they are soldered back together and do not use wire connectors to repair the wire(s) unless you want to repair the system again in about a month or two.

Here are two wiring diagrams (if the vehicle has rear vent windows then use the upper diagram) of a typical GM power window circuit for that year to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Power window doesnt work on front right passanger door. checked all fuses and continuty to and from switch

First be certain that the circuit breaker for the power windows is not faulty and that it does have power to, and going through the 30 amp circuit breaker in the fuse block under the instrument panel.

If there is power from the circuit breaker then there is most likely a broken wire at or inside of a weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle. It will most likely be on the driver door weather boot, or it will be inside of the weather boot on the door that is having a problem with the window.

A power probe would be the best way to diagnose the power window circuit, and applying voltage to the suspected window motor directly through the wires from the window switch for that motor would determine quickly if the window motor itself is faulty, and here is a wiring diagram to help assist you.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Sunroof will not work

Power is supplied to the Power windows and sunroof through the power window circuit breaker. That circuit breaker is supplied power through the RAP (retained accessory power) Relay, the RAP relay also supplies power to the radio. The RAP relay is also fuse protected by the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block. The RAP relay is energized by the BCM body control module.

The RAP relay is responsible for the radio and windows working after the igntion is turned off.

The first place to check would be the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block and then the RAP relay in the Body fuse block.

A list of the BODY relay block located on the left side of the dash to the right of the interior fuse block is below:

(1) Park Lamp Relay (2) Courtesy Lamp Relay (3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay (4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker (5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker (6) Inadvertent Power Relay (7) Door Lock Relay (8) Headlamp Ground Relay (9) Driver Door Unlock Relay (10) Door Unlock Relay(1) Park Lamp Relay
(2) Courtesy Lamp Relay
(3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay
