Hello

So the windows in my tx2 stopped working only the rear windows work. So i started with the basics by looking for a blown fuse. However the fuses were fine. Although i noticed a wire going from the rear window fuse and isnt connected to anything the other end is it ment to go to the front window fuse?. I have a picture here https://ibb.co/dTgnH8 (the red wire shown is what im on about) apologies for the slightly poor quality.

Thank you

The problem is the fuse holder itself....you will find that the solder on the live side is not making a good connection....re-solder it. it get's too hot...… never make the two front windows work together....

Hi MR T

Would it be better just to buy a new fuse holder? The problem was a few years ago there was no power going to the front window fuse slot so the garage put the fuse holder in so it took the power from the rear window fuse.
