Locate a replacement fuse. It must be the rated for the same amperage as the original fuse that operated the window mechanism. The amp rating should be printed on the fuse, and it should also be listed in your owner’s manual. Do not use a fuse with a higher amp rating, as this may lead damaging the electrical components of your vehicle. Push the new fuse straight down into the cradle. The fuse must be "set". This means that it does not move or wobble. Turn your car key to the "on" position. This provides power to your windows and allows you to test them. You need not start your car. Test your windows. Confirm that they go up and down without restriction.
Heat can also decrease a battery's lifespan significantly. Hot weather causes liquids inside batteries to evaporate as well as internal damage. This can occur whether you are driving or if the car is parked. The magazine recommends that vehicle owners in hotter parts of the country have their car battery tested after two years of ownership and then every year after. Those who live in colder areas can wait four years after buying a car to test performance and capacity, then every year after.
