Smile 1997 FORD EXPLORER RAINY DAY ISSUE

Hello,from North Alabama,where most days these days are gray and damp!I've been searching for awhile hoping I would'nt have to post but it looks like I'm gonna. I dont drive my 97 Explorer very often,I bought it last Jan. to replace my old 89 Dodge truck for pullin my boat and odd jobs around here.This morning after hard rains and wind all night long,the windshield wipers would only work when they wanted to,the power windows would'nt work at all.After making a few stops running erronds,all returned to normal.I'm wondering where this multifuntion switch is located.And fuse boxes.can anyone help me on this? Thanks in advance.Your info really helped me out on my Windstar cruise control issues a few months ago. OLJO FROM ALABAM

The best way to check that is when it's not working. The multi-function switch is the turn signal switch. It has nothing to do with the windows. Check Autozones website for a free online manual and diagrams.

There are 2 fuse boxes. One under the hood. Here's a link to the owners manual if you don't have yours. http://www.motorcraftservice.com/pub.../97ranog1e.pdf
