Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus
Power windows do not operate. Check circuit breaker/fuse in the dash; drivers side and it appears okiedokie ( .2 ohms ). Pulled the fuse and connected a DVM and I don't have power to either side of the fuse socket. Power is going into the computer and fuse assembly ( 12.5ish ).
I found the connection to the window motors and I can see that the up/down buttons indeed work while looking at an Ohm meter.
Schematic of that fuse box would be great.
What you need to do is use a method we refer to as back feeding. Going back to the fuse that has no power across it. Leave the fuse installed, and then using a long jumper wire, commect one end to a known 12 volt power source and the with the other end of the wire, tap one end of the fuse. If there is no spark, and the fuse does not blow, leave the test wire connected to the fuse and operate the power window switch in question. If the window now operates, begin to check back towards the switch to diagnoss the loss of power.
