When you pop the hood and look at the complicated mechanical devices called engines, you notice right away there's plenty of wiring. In fact, the wires seem to snake around the engine in a complex configuration that makes little sense to anyone who is not a mechanic. Auto engines have plenty of electrical configurations that are critical to their smooth operation. The fact is that when a car experiences problems, it could easily be an electrical problem as much as it could be a mechanical problem. Any qualified mechanic needs to be familiar with both mechanical and electrical problems in order to be efficient at his or her job. That means a mobile car mechanic must be prepared to complete a variety of repairs including those related to the electrical systems.
Changing a Fuse: Locate and open the fuse box.It should be located inside the car as a part of, or near, the dash. Check your owner's manual to locate that operates the windows. It is not uncommon that the only thing wrong with electrical components in a vehicle is a blown fuse. If this is the case with your windows you will need to replace the window fuse. Pull the fuse straight out of its cradle. Be careful not to twist or otherwise force it. You do not want to damage the cradle or break a piece of the fuse off in the cradle. There are fuse tongs available at part supply stores that can help with this.
