I removed the engine and trans from this parts car and screwed up by leaving the drivers door window down.  With the wiring and battery mostly removed, I was wondering if I can just take a battery jump pack and provide power and ground to the wiring harness of the door and raise the window over winter.


Any ideas if this would work?

Add a suitable fuse in series?

Just in case there's a short somewhere.

Yes. Put a clamp on the fuel supply and return lines as the pump will power up when you turn the key on.

The fuse block and battery terminal is gone .  I was going directly to the door wiring that comes from the door and goes through the front opening and goes towards the drivers side fuse panel.  I was going to just disconnect the electric cable and feed  the blue red  which is up and down.

Yep going direct should be fine.

Pull the door panel and just hook power straight to the wires on the window motor.

Thanks.  That would be a lot easier.
