1985 Pace Arrow

Iíve got a power window issue I cannot figure out. I canít seem to find the fuses or a relay for them on a 1985 Pace Arrow. Any help would be appreciated!

If you have an ohm meter, trace the circuit back to where it gets power if you can't locate the fuse on either the chassis or the coach fuse panel.

Although a little time-consuming, you could pull the fuses one at a time, trying the window each time!

In regular production vehicles of that era, the power windows run off a circuit breaker instead of a fuse.

On my different model and rather newer coach all the driver's door wires are VERY easily accessible at the driver's side kick panel area.

Had the driver's power window quit working in a slightly newer PA. Turned out to be the micro switch in the window controls. Agree with the comment to check voltage coming into the switch assembly to help isolate the problem.

Power Window

I have an '87 Pace Arrow. On mine, you have a fuse in box under dash; a "supposed to auto-reset" circuit breaker mounted inside the door; and the switch. The only way to access the circuit breaker requires total disassembly of the interior door panel from the door and then a tite fit to get at the breaker to test/replace it. Hope this helps.

I have the door panel completely dissembled. Is the break a little box?

BINGO! Now you have to check it to see if it's good. Or just replace it since it isn't really expensive.

BTW, check your switch for both up and down before you start to reassemble the door. If it is intermittent, replace it to. And if the breaker trips in either up or down mode, you may have to replace the window motor. For that I recommend taking the old motor in with you and make 100% sure that old and new bolt points match up exactly before you spend any money. And don't bother trying to match it up by model year online. Mine has a Ford Motor on the window and a GM motor on the electric step.
