Thanks to help from "The Roadie", I fixed my reverse lights by replacing the fuse. How did I figure the fuse was bad? I took a similar fuse, swapped places with the existing fuse, and the lights worked. Not to mention, the old fuse was obviously burnt just by looking at it:duh:. Well, I tried the same thing for my power windows. Took a fuse I knew that worked (right side), and swapped it for one that I thought might be blown (left side) and well what do you know, the left side worked... for a while. It took about five minutes before the good one was blown. And now, I'm left with three bad fuses, I bought one after looking for about an hour (all they had was one), believe me they are not easy to find, and no one seems to carry them, and a window thats about quarter of the way down. So there is an obvious short, and what I'm hoping is for some ideas on where to start. I plan on taking it to a shop, but before I do, I would like to try to fix it myself before they charge me an arm and a leg for wire break chasing. :hopeless: Also, immediately after installing the new one, you can hear it fizzling and popping, and it does not take long at all for it to heat up, I've already burnt my fingers.
