Default Pwr Windows/Blower Fan/Back-up lights/Rear Window Defogger/Air Bag Light

No power into fuse block on fuses associated with Pwr Windows, HVAC (blower fan). Air Bag (Run). ... Rear window defogger has no power.. air bag light is on in run ..seems to check itself on start and then shuts off, then comes back on in run condition. Looking at wiring diagrams seems to all lead to a block on diagram labeled RUN A22. I am thinking that goes back to the ignition switch but my diagrams (Chilton) do not show the ignition portion of wiring. Anybody got any ideas... Hard to drive when it is 108deg outside with not blower fan for A/C and can not roll windows down... SHEESH!!!!!

Found my problem... PDC Fuse 3 feeds through C106 connector under dash..then to C1 connector (ign switch run position)...then to interior fuse block Fuse 5 (air bag run) Fuse 6 (back up lights/rear window defogger) Fuse 7 (HVAC blower fan) and to CKT BKR 2 (power windows).. all fuses were good... Problem was pin 21 on connector C106... wire going into and out of the connector was blackened (not crispy) and there was some signs of melting gray material on downside of connector related to pin 21 wire. Pulled connector apart and found terminals corroded.. scraped clean and applied some dielectric grease to it .. put together and pulled apart a couple of time and then put it together and it works.. May have to keep an eye on it and also will see about replacing pin terminals or taking that wire out of the connector and splicing it.. then to determine what was pulling enough current to blacken the wire...

I have this exact same problem. Can one of you save me a lot of trouble and tell me where C106 is located? Thanks in advance.

Read the post:
" PDC Fuse 3 feeds through C106 connector under dash..then to C1 connector (ign switch run position)..."

so C106 is under dash - one end comes from fuse 3, other side goes toward ignition switch.....

There must be some sort of auto reset circuit breaker in the line someplace. This morning it was all better. Took overnight I guess.

No, there's a bad connection that sometimes makes, sometimes breaks...
