Fuse #26 (10amp) feeds power to the Battery Saver Relay, which in turn feeds the Interior Lights, Transmissions System (if used), and Accessory Delay Relay. The Accessory Delay Relay in turn controls the power feed from Maxi Fuse #4 in the PDB to the power window switches.
If Fuse #26 is blowing, its not the power windows thatís causing it to blow. Its more than likely a short in between the fuse panel and the Battery Saver Relay, somewhere in the Interior Lights, or the power feed to the Accessory Delay Relay.
Does the fuse blow as soon as you replace it with the key off?
