Asked by Feb 02, 2017 at 02:47 PM about the 1996 Mercury Sable 4 Dr GS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Need help here as fast as possiblefrom a Ford Pro or Electrical Pro as I am
having a giant brain fart here!
Window stuck open, with lower temps and a lot of rain & snow lately. Son
called me this AM, said last night he got home & driver's window was
inoperable. He changed the fuse & also tested the relay. Then he also
noticed the dome light was'nt working and neither was his rear defroster or
his wipers. I know many Ford & Chrylers when windows die, usually a quick
fix by changing master switch on Driver's door, but with everything I named
here wrong at once, that can't be it. I also know a lot of cars these days
have split fuse circuits that feed several systems, and also have several
systems that are fed power from several fuses resulting in loss of certain
systems but not all systems, but they USUALLY do NOT mark them out to
keep life simple.

Make sure the accessory hot wire is not damaged or corroded.
