    I keep blowing my power window fuse and was wondering id anyone ever had this problem. It kept blowing today each time i turned the ignition on and i could see a large blue spark when it would blow then after about 5 fuses i put one in and it works. Im sure its a short some where but just thought one of you may have had this happen before.
    Thanks for any help.

    it does it when rolling them up or down and sometimes just when changing the fuse. it'll blow as soon as i turn the key sometimes but not all the time and sometimes it works fine.

    hmm... sounds like you got a pretty decent problem there.. what i would do is check the wires from that fuse.. to the motors... look for chaffing and shorting to ground..or power...

    are you blowing them the second you try to run the doors? if so, i'd also say its a short. make sure there is no chaffing and such on the wires....
