Hi there.

I have a ef Fairmont with both a non working electronic antenna and rear demister. The fuses on right side of the bottom dash appear fine but I am getting nothing at the switches.

Is there a way I can test the switches with a multimeter?

Thanks in advance..

The antenna button won't do anything unless you've got Ford radio hooked up in dash, mine didn't work until I bought a low series radio from wreckers with code and hooked it up, if demister truly inoperative suspect BCM (Body Control Module) has failed, OR other electrics are conflicting with its use (remove all aftermarket electrics connected to BCM).

check rear demist fuse + relay + switch + BEM module - switch turns BEM on which turns relay on -

BEM operates aerial after receiving signal from radio - switch on dash should only be to alter height of aerial
