Power Windows. 2011 f150 xl. When you put a fuse in it blows…

Customer Question
Power Windows Mechanic's Assistant:...

Power Windows

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2011 f150 xl

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

When you put a fuse in it blows right away

Mechanic's Assistant: Do all the fuses have the correct amperage for the circuits they're in?

So..... I took both door switches out.... fuse blew

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

THEN left both switches unplugged AND proceeded to unplug what I believe was the Regulator(small plug sat in the middle of door)....... put fuse in.....it blew

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

DO you know the number of the fuse or what is labeled in the cover

Exactly. From where or what area. is there a Power Window Relay somewhere on that model.? The truck is New used off Ford Dealership lot. So everything is factory. What possibility you got.?
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

the left or right window motor, the relay for that is before the fuse, it could be that too but I doubt it, thats why we need to do some tests to find out,

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Do you know where that relay is that is before..... The Power 30 amps to each windows doesn't blow
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Could #49 be the problem
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

its the accessory delay relay, and its hard to tell with out doing any electrical tests, if your unable to do tests you can only unplug things, so try unplugging the motors and see if it blows

Customer reply replied 6 months ago

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
