Post Power window fuse keeps blowing
The power window fuse of Mrs' Pajero keeps blowing. Could it be faulty switch? How come it works fine for a week or so after I put new fuse in if it's a faulty switch?
Haven't installed anything on the car which would affect wiring. Any idea? :\

It will be one of the old skool gremlin powered window systems - and theyre probably pulling some kind of prank, or you've gone and fed them after midnight...

Theres probably a short somewhere or you're using the wrong type of fuse me thinks.

12v 30amps... :\ displayed on the fuse box as well. Finding the short is going to be a PIA. I might look at the switch for any tell tale signs of burnt connectors.

Probably find the window motor is on its way out, and is shorting somewhere inside the motor casing. Will be an intermittent short, as may require a certain bump to get it to work hence the week while it works and then it blows.
