I've read a couple of posts on here about this problem, but none have helped me to get to the bottom of my problem or how to troubleshoot. http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=282810&highlight=fuse+17 A month and a half ago, the power windows and radio stopped working. I read on this forum to check fuse #17 which affects the delayed accessory circuit. I found that indeed it was blown, so I replaced it and all seemed fine. Three weeks later it occurred again. I replaced the fuse again and all seemed fine again until a couple of days ago. I replaced it for the third time, knowing that there was something else wrong (like a short somewhere) that was causing this to occurr...but figured I'd go ahead while I began researching the cause. I replaced it anyway and it blew again today. Today I opened up the driver and passenger side doors and checked the wires passing through each door hinge. I didn't find any shorts or broken/cracked wires. When I tried to replace the fuse this time, it blew immediately. My wife and daughter reported that today when it stopped working, smoke came out of the passenger side vent. NOW THE DRIVER'S WINDOW is open and I can't close it! Can anyone tell me what might be wrong? Better yet, does anyone have any ideas about how to troubleshoot. Thanks much.
