power window switch fix-or at least repair
Posted 30 December 2004 - 10:26 PM
So now on to the switch in the front pass door-should be piece of cake now? Weeeeeelllllll......Ratcheting screwdriver broke on dissaay, but managed to get apart. First clue should have been that with pass door switch removed, even master switch would not operate window! Turns out due to interlock, etc, even in off position ther are contacts that are made that are broken selectively during the up and down operations. Thankfully for once my chiltons had detailed schematics, including the internal workings of the switch, or I would have assumed it could have been replaced with a DPDT and never known why it didnt work. Prolly needed at least a 3P3T but I just hard wired the jumpers to simulate permanently off and control that window only from drivers side.
Cold better, knee better, returned broken screwdriver for full refund(will buy a lifetme warrenty/better quality one later), wife happy so all is well for now.
