Question about 2000 Ford Mustang
you might need a new battery or you could possibly have a ground problem...check the connections to your battery, you may need to fix the cables. i had that problem with my 1996 sable.

first of all you may not be looking for a fuse if you have an owner manual check the fuse box under the hood as well it maybe one of the little boxes called a relay

This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.
These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.
New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

i've got the same problem. i've taken it to 2 shops, a master mechanic, and visited the dealership [$$$$]. your body control module [bcm] has an issue. it's the computer behind the fuse pannel. you can TRY to update the driver at the local dealership, but that will run you about $100, and there's no guarantee. worst case, you have to buy a new one from the dealership- $300-400 is what i was quoted. don't bother with a junkyard, as the computers are vin specific and you would still have to pay the$100 to 'reflash/reprogram' it.. but doing that only updates the driver, if applicable, and matches the computer's vin with the vin on your car. once these computers are formatted, they can not be 'wiped' or 'rewritten'. you're gonna have to either deal with the accessories not working, or fork out the $ for a new one. sucks, huh?
