92 LX w/5.0 swap keeps blowing window fuse

Hey all, Been away for a while, just came back from Afghanistan, Again... Bought a 92 LX 5.0 yesterday and it keeps blowing the power window fuse. old owner said they were fine one day and then just went to shit. has an after market head unit and some sort of aftermarket alarm if that does anything at all i doubt but hey, never know! Any ideas??

I'd check to see how he wired up the radio power and ground feeds.

Re: 92 LX w/5.0 swap keeps blowing window fuse

See how ran wires. If the stereo is on and wired to the same fuse it may just be over loading the fuse. Rewire the radio to the proper "Radio" fuse and see what happens.

Easiest thing first~I'd turn the stereo off and try the window's. If it still pops the fuse its either a short going to the motor or the motor itself. All motors simulate a short on start up (hitting the button) As the motor gets older, dust and oxidation can collect inside the motor. This makes it more difficult to start moving. In turn requiring more amperage and popping the stock rated fuse. In my younger less edumicated days i'd just swap out a bigger fuse and see what happens. Although with a higher rated fuse, this will allow more amperage and may lead to burning up a wire/wires. Which mean you'd have to go hunting for the torched wire/s. So i wouldnt recommend this.

Re: 92 LX w/5.0 swap keeps blowing window fuse

What they said, plus I would check to see how the alarm is wired. I would think that the alarm may be your best source of an issue. They make wiring kits for radios that will plug into the factory connections, so I don't that is likely your issue if the head unit was installed professionally or they used the adaptive harness. Might ask the previous owner if it started after the alarm or the radio was installed. That might help narrow it down.

Re: 92 LX w/5.0 swap keeps blowing window fuse

Ok, digging in it a little bit and it is blowing instantly as soon as the car has power so I am leaning towards a short somewhere. can i just run a whole new wire from fuse block to switch?
