Windows don't work at all. I'm wondering if the power wire goes from drivers door to the fuse box back to the drivers door and then back out? Or does it go from fuse box to somewhere else? Any suggestions on fixing this and or if someone can locate online the wiring diagram i'd appreciate it very much. I may just rig it with a switch so i need to find power wire.thanks

Re: Windows won't work
Your power feed to the window switch panel is a big wire loom that goes through the driver door. Check the connection at the door jamb. I've seen the plug slowly come apart just from the door opening and closing. You should have a power window fuse at the fuse block under the dash as well. The power to all the windows goes to the main switch at the driver door first then goes to the rest of the windows. Hope this helps.

I would expect to find a main wiring connector has some serious corrosion in it. The fuses for those circuits would be in the fuse box in the engine compartment. You could try running power direct to the driver's door switch to make the windows come down. Make sure you have a fuse or breaker in the line.
The headlight may have a bad filament.
Do you know what that fuse is for? It's got to be a short (broken wire touching metal) in that circuit. Is it for the windows?
For the windows: pull off the inner panel for access to the master switch on driver's door. Look for one hot wire going to the power window switch, with key on. If no power is found at switch, check the wires going into door-maybe broke or frayed. If you have power at the switch, it's likely a bad switch or bad ground for the window circuit, because I doubt if both window motors failed at the same time. Good luck, and find what's blowing that fuse. Where it goes.
No there is not a seperate fuse, but all power goes through driver door. First check to see if windows roll up and down using switches on drivers side. If they work then try the passenger side. If they don't work then the problem is with the passenger side switches. IF nothing works at on using either side switches then check the wiring through the kick panel and through the door, it could be that wire has been disconnected or cut. Good Luck.
Hello: The power source is a circuit breaker located in the fuse box under the driver side dash. There are 2 circuit breakers (about 1 inch long and 1/4 inch wide. The top one is for the windows, swap the two breakers, If the windows work then you have a bad breaker. If windows don't work the remove the window switch assembly from the door. on the back side of the window switch assembly you will have a heavy pink wire, that is power to the windows. with a test light check to see if you have power. If you don't the it could be a broken wire where the wire comes from the body to the door. If no broken wire then it could be a burnt fusible link that comes off the starter. ALSO BELOW the window circuit breaker is a black connector that supplies power to the windows, the trunk release and the sunroof if equipped. This information straight out of a 1988 CADILLAC service manual. Check that black connector for burnt wires and make sure its plugged in tight. Do any of the windows work from the individual switches in the door.
Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door. Could be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released. It could also be the body control module.
Chances are its a door switch or the wiring close to it. the wires bend every time you open and close the door. Check for that but if your dead set on a relay. look under the hood you should find a relay panel on the left(drivers side) finder well. On the cover of the panel box will be a listing and placement for all the relays
well being that the power mirror and window both get power from the same source aka one lead wire i would check to make sure the wire is not damaged from door opening and closing ect. also there is a fuse somewere for power windows but typically bothh would not work if fuse issue howerver check your power window relay if that is not the issue either a wire came out of the fuse box for driver side door power and or the wire is damaged
the window fuses are in the fuse box
but i don't think that's the problem if a window will roll up but not down
or down but not up/////
open the driver door you will see a rubber tube going from the door to
the door jam open the rubber up ill bet you find a few broken wires
all you need to do is splice them back together
if you don't find any brakes in the fuse box the windows are setup on breakersthey might be bad Thar's always a first for every thing
might not be fuse , u need to check out the power and grounds to that door, i would have someone look at it unless u are able to use a test light and get into the back of the window switches and see if when u move the swtich it gets power and groud to the motor.
There are broken wires in the wiring harness between the frame and your driver's side door. These wires control all the windows and door locks in a 95 Jeep. Same thing happened to me. You will have to cut the rubber boot to get it off and check which wires are broken and repair them.
