Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a independent contractor for just answer, and ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.There will probably be some equipment needed for a proper diagnosis. If you are not comfortable with this or do not have any test equipment please let me know ASAP. I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating. I am not compensated for my time until you leave a positive rating. Your rating should be based on the service you received.

Do you have a test light? I will be asking you to remove the master power window switch so you can do some testing. Is that something you are capable of?

Expert:  Tool Hut replied 8 months ago.

If you just remove the accessory delay relay do the power windows still work?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
they do
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 8 months ago.

It is most likely that you have a short to positive in you feed wire. It is also possible that the underhood fuse box is shorted internally.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
How do I check that
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 8 months ago.

OK. Lets try something first. Remove circuit breaker 47 from the underhood box and tell me if the windows still work

Hello, I have not heard from you in a few days. Do you still need assistance? I also noticed you haven't left a rating. I have assisted in good faith and am only compensated when you leave a positive rating. Please let me know if there is anything else you need to leave a positive rating. Conversations can always continue after a rating is received.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
