98 f150 power windows/4x4/dome light/window wipers problem

The symtoms just started. I was replacing my rear brake line when I noticed that my dome light would not come on. After I was done with my brakes, I tryed to trouble shoot the light. I found out that my power windows/4x4 switch/dome light/ window wipers/ hood light do not work. Also, when I start the truck and I have the door open, the "door ajar" light does not stay on nor does the chime say on. I have been having a problem with my ingnition switch keeping the chime on, it doesn't do that now... I have checked all the fuses and relay's in the cab and under the hood. Do you have any suggestions?

My 1998 ford f150 4x4 has electrial problems. The dome light, power windows, wipers,electric door locks are not working. Any ideas


Hi, this might be caused by a blown fuse. Check all fuses as there are some systems integrated with others running from the same fuse. If all the fuses are fine you will need to look at the earth connections and power supplies to the systems.

Gearshift locked, no power windows, interior lights, wipers


For starters, do you have brake lamps? The shift lockout is controlled by the brake switch. As far as the others, yes it could be the GEM (generic electronic module) some of these vehicles have water intrusion problems that leat into the fusebox and GEM which is located on the back of the fuse box. If you can look at the fuse box inside the vehicle and if you can see the back, look for corrosion which is a sign of water.

Transmission shifter is stuck in 'P' on my 2002 F150 Fx4 Supercrew, why?


You need to check the connection on the front of the master cylinder. This is the brake disengage for the cruise control. If it is wet this is the problem of the short. You need to replace the unit. This was a recall by ford. Now check the #15 fuse (5a) this controls the brake interlock switch. When you put the fuse in you will hear a click. This means you can now take the truck out of park. The lights will come on and the windows will work. If the windows don't work check the other fuses. By pulling them and replacing them made the windows work for me.

1999 F150 WIndshield wipers, dome light and side window controls not working


i just had the same problem with my f 150 ( 1999), my wipers, washer fluid pump, dome light, door chime stopped, I went thur the manuals, Checked appropated fuses, even changed wiper motor, (nothing worked) out of much internet checking, talking to mechanics, I got frustrated, I started pulling all the fuses under the dash,, I pulled # 15 ,a 5 amp fuse, which has nothing to do with the wipers eletronics, it was a good fuse, when i put it back in, everything came back and working fine. nearest i can figure it was either loose or a dirty contact.

#15 fuse (5 amps) on my box is for : stop lamp switch,( speed control,brake shift interlock,ABS, pcm module inputs.gem module,RABS test connector)
this was just blind luck, maybe it will help you.
