75' 280C Power Windows

One of the sudden the Power Windows stopped working, all four. It seems like they are not getting power because nothing happens when I activate any of the switches. Where is the fuse or fuses located?. Any help will be appreciated.

Francisco.

If it is the same as on the 108, there should be a bunch of silver cylinders lining the firewall on the engine side. I don't know which one is for the windows but one is. Usually it just needs to be taken apart and cleaned.

Thanks
David

If the 75 is like the 73, the fuses are in two plastic cases on the passenger side of the engine compartment.

Are you getting power to the fuses with key on?

Chuck...No power on fuses w/key or engine on. Anything else you can think of? Are there any other fuses or relays hiding in the dashboard?
HELP!!

Thanks,
Francisco Garcia.

There is a relay. I have no clue where it is. The power from the relay to the window fuses (17 and 18) is a black wire. The power feeds to the relay are black/red from Fuse 3 and black/blue from the "start-run bus."

Have you checked Fuse 3?
