My ford focus 1999 ghia estate rear heated window stopped working.

Resolved Question:

My ford focus 1999 ghia estate rear heated window stopped working. I changed the fuse the old one had blown, but still no go. Should I remove the fuse and put the multimeter across the fuse holder to determine if any current flows. Could it be a sticky relay?

Hi there good afternoon to you Ok if you can give me your registration number I can study the wiring diagram and give you a few tests to conduct to try and get to the bottom of this Does the switch light up to indicate the rear window is on Regards ***** ***** Brian

Hi there thanks Ok looking through the diagram the first check is to check if we have 12 + volts across fuse 49 (25amp ) in the fuse box behind the glove box with the heated rear window switch with the Vehicle running Regards ***** ***** Brian
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Just tested it.0.42V only with engine running. Awkward to get to but that's cars.
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 11 months ago.
Ok I assume this is the same both sides of the fuse if do this inducates no power to the fuse Next check would be the relay for heated rear screen (relay K1 above the fuses to the right I have attached an image of the diagram to assist you As if this relay is damaged inside this could have shorted Swap the relay with another one if possible Or bridge pins 3&5 together and check power to fuse You may need to remove 2x7 mm bolts to pop the fuse box down from memory the relays are covered until fuse box is popped down ward Regards Brian

Sorry picture a bit naff. Had to print it off and then scan otherwise too big to send. The problem is the grey metal cover it appears soldered on the left hand side. Thanks

Hi there if you push the side tabs inward the fuse box will release from metal housing Regards ***** ***** Brian
