Power windows won't go down

Big silver fuse in fuse box gets very hot within 10 seconds of placing in fuse box, window will then go down about one fouth of an inch. Take out and let cool and do again. I almost have window down now. Is it an electrical problem? All 4 windows will not go down. Thanks.

If the fuse is getting hot and not blowing you have a high resistance short .Maybe in one of the window motors.

Tried it today and none of the windows work from master switch on drivers side except ft passenger window, which went down but will not go back up.


You can't put up the front passenger window with it's own switch ? Did you check the POWER WINDOW RELAY in the instrument panel fuse / relay box ? An you checked POWER fuse 30amp same fuse box ? All window switches have direct power from power window relay !

The windows on my crv wont work


at all stations?
all fuses, in both boxes. (did you read the operators guide to find them,
some cars have a circuit break (thermal) for windows,
and is located in the fuse box.
all this info is at alldata.com
ill look. ill respond , as you are a pro DIY person, can read schematics. if not , its just a guessing game.
IT IS a FUSE, not a breaker. but each motor in door has CB.
UNDER HOOD 40am Fuse #13
then fuse 23 underdash and fuse 8 same.
then the relay.same place.
and the relay is controlled by, master station (drivers)
the driver location doesnt need the relay to work.
the relay feeds power to all other window controls
so the master station is unique.
log in to alldata.com and see the pages on power windows.
here are some tid bits.
battery pull warning

Resetting the power window control unit is required after performing the following procedures: Disconnecting the battery, Removing the No. 6 (7.5 A) and/or the No. 23 (20 A) fuses from the under-dash fuse/relay box or disconnecting the driver's door wire harness.
and
window relearn/reset.
Control Unit Reset
  1. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
  2. Move the driver's window all the way down by holding the driver's switch firmly down; when the window reaches the bottom, hold the driver's window switch firmly down for 2 seconds.
  3. Move the driver's window all the way up by holding the driver's switch firmly up; when the window reaches the top, hold the driver's window switch firmly up for 2 seconds.
  4. If the window does not work in AUTO, turn the ignition switch OFF and repeat the procedure.
  5. Check the window and power door lock operations

I have a 99 Ranger. Fuse blows before I get it in box. But right now my windows don't roll up or down. One headlight won't come on and it does work on brights. Any ideas would be appreciated!


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.

NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes.
NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.
NOTE: Steps 7 and 9 require that the power rear window control switch be held in the closed position until the power rear window motor stalls the window in the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the open position.

2002 Ford F250 Super Crew V10 driving down the road today and my radio dies, no clock, nothing, so I try all the other electronics and power windows won't work. I checked fuses for continuity and all...


this may help bud, circuits are related, instrument cluster microproce, to acc. relay, to windows and radio...check underhood fuses(central junc. box) real good. I had a few of these in with shorts left footwell(driver's side) below e-brake area, under carpet. Fuse 41 10amp was the one on my end.

Ford Taurus Wagon 1998 Front windows are down and will not go back up, rear windows operate fine.


Go to auto parts store its typically a really (10 bux) tell them you need power window relay... the diagram is in 2 places the fuse box cover and the manual (if not in the inner fuse box under dash try the master box under the hood).

If it still doesn't work you might need a motor... but try the relay first

Cant find the fuse for the power windows 1994 jeep grand che


Probably not a fuse. It's probably a circuit breaker. They are in your fuse box, but they are the big silver ones.
