: Tailgate window 20A CB?

Probably a dumb question, but where the hell is the 20A CB for the tailgate window. Book says by the starter relay (Solenoid?).

What the hell does it look like?

Lost....:banghead

Might be a fuseable link near the relay....should be on the same side as the battery is on.

That's what I though...
Book says circuit breaker, different than a fuseable link, a CB is resettable.

I looked all around the Starter Relay (Solenoid)...Don't see anything that looks like it could be a circuit breaker.

Like I said...:banghead

Which book is this? If there is indeed a circuit breaker, it'd be located in the fuse panel with the rest of the fuses.

Chiltons....

Are these resettable like other circuit breakers?

Thanks for the help...

Don't believe so. You can do a continuity test with a tester or certain voltmeters to tell if its bad

my power window went out for a bit , just made a click from the motor. everything tested ok. just oiled/greased the regulator arms and it's working - also check the latches and make sure they are engaged properly b/c of the safety switch (mine was bypassed already)

if it is saying near the starter relay. that sounds like an inline fusible link ( looks like a chunk of wire with xtra heatshrink

If it is a fusible link the book is referring to, then it shouldn't call it a breaker.

Fusible links are a 1-shot only deal. If it melts, it has to be replaced. Breakers are resettable.

I believe that after 81; the TG window motor circuit has what you have and;
"...One important thing to note here, is that the power supplies are fed from 2 different points. The dash switch 12 volt feed is from the ignition on/off power source - and feeds into the switch via a separate 30A breaker in the fuse panel from the key switch assembly, which gets its source from an UN-SWITCHED source. It is fed from another 30A breaker in the fuse panel..."

for 78-79..81...see this info & diagrams by MIL1ION (http://fullsizebronco.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146214&highlight=fuse+box)
One diagram for example:

The 78-79 TG ckt included a 20 a Circuit Breaker @ starter relay & receives 12 v from Ignition Switch; whereas later years don't have the CB there; it is of course in the Fuse Panel or have 2 fuses in the panel; & Relay Location in 78-79; for the 78-9 People, for us, it is quite easy, under the dash behind the instrument cluster, there is a relay, that relay is to run the main constant power for the rear window when the key is on, by origin at FSB; Relay Location in 78-79; Behind the guage/speedo is a relay that powers the inside switch, check it, by Zebrafive at FSB; In other years after 82, there are 2 seperate power sources & 2 fuses/circuit breakers for positive. 1 for each switch. The same 2 wires are used throughout for both up & down (Polarity is reversed by the switches). by ElKabong (Ken, El Kabong) at FSB

78 and 79 had a breaker mounted on the batt. side of the starter solinoild. i think that in the early 80-86 the relay was mounted behind the the instrument gauge panel on the left side just above the wiper switch.
