Corolla's ECU fuse blown up issue

Asked by Nov 14, 2016 at 08:13 AM about the 2008 Toyota Corolla S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair


I am using father's Corolla 2009 since last 2-3 months.
It is XLi which was later converted to Power Windows
when i started using this car 3 months ago, Its Power windows were too
stucky, too slow.1 of them was not working at all.
I took it to shop in Sagheer Centre,F.B.Area(who claimed for repairing
power windows since last 15-16 years).

They charged Rs. 2000/= for servicing all 4 door windows BUT IT WAS
CURSE.................

After that day, whenever i use to switch any window up or down, switch of
ECU gets blown-up. I took my car to electrician, he put wiring of power
windows separately from built-infuse box.

For that purpose he has installed separate relay,separate wires & separate
fuses on right side (under steering). According to them, now power windows
is direct(no connection with fuse box)- Proof is that now power windows
working without inserting key in ignition,,,,it is direct from Battery.(Before we
had to put Key in ignition switch & move key to "start" or "ON" position for
making power windows working)

But still whenever if key is in ignition (Start or ON mode) then if anyone
switch window UP or DOWN, then ECU-fuse gets blown up (BUT IF KEY IS
NOT IN IGNITION THEN YOU CAN EASILY SWITCH POWER WINDOWS UP
OR DOWN.NO ISSUE)

This is causing me in trouble from 3 months, i have tried different auto-
electrician but no difference. Some says change whole fuse box, some says
change whole wiring, some says your power window's machine are "short"
How can 4 windows of power windows get "short" same time.

i am too worry.please guide me how to troubleshoot towards root cause.
