I have tried the console: player.setcrimegold 0 with all of the ids, still the fine in windhelm is stuck on 9040! I can only make it higher. I tried it with -9040 and it didn't work.

You may have typed in the wrong faction ID, and also have included insufficient parameters to the command.

Pay your bounty - player.paycrimegold <0-1> <0-1> <faction ID> - The first 0-1 choice refers to being sent to jail: entering 1 will let you be teleported to the respective faction's jail, entering 0 won't. The second 0-1 choice refers to keeping your stolen items: entering 0 means you do not lose your stolen items, entering 1 means you do. If you don't add any choice you will be sent to jail without losing your stolen items.

Answer comes from my super answer of all Skyrim problems.


Select a guard of the faction where you have the bounty in the console and enter the following command:

player.paycrimegold 9040

This will not delete the fine, but pay it, which is basically the same.

You can also enter the factionID behind the amount, which spares you from selecting a guard.
