After the big trip in Uno, I finally had some time this weekend to give some attention to Ash. Before the trip I had started to examine the power window issue. Namely, the windows go down but they don't go up except by reaching over to the sub switch. Yesterday I made it out to the JY and got a new master switch because I was able to prove that was the issue. How did I do so you may ask? I simply swapped Uno's master switch into Ash. Yeah not very clever I know, but it did prove that the master switch was the issue.
Got back yesterday from the JY with the replacement master switch and it did not work. It was worse than Ash's original one. I almost took off for the JY again today until I had a thought to take the original apart and see if it could be repaired. The first thing that happened was all the little contact bits came tumbling out and the thing looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone (as the song goes). After a few swear words, I paused for about 15 minutes and decided I would see if I could get it working. All he bit seemed to be there. I cleaned up the contacts and after a few false starts, got the thing back together. Took iot outside and it worked.
I was sooooo happy I took Ash to the car wash and got the "Beary Best" . Since he had been sitting so long I wanted to protect his finish. He has virtually zero rust and I would like to keep it that way. Unfortunately a trim bit was blown off in the car wash.
When the wash was done, I hopped out and grabbed his trim bit and drove off. I will glue it back on later. For now I got working power windows.
