"Hi Keith. I found the relay, checked it, its bad, went to O'reilly's and found a 40 amp relay. Wired the existing plug to the new relay, and now ALL windows work perfectly.
This site is great and day one has already…"
"Hi Keith. I have the exact same issue. ALL of my windows work BUT ONLY when the Emergency switch is pushed. I have a couple of questions for those that have tackled these power windows.
Is there a relay somewhere?
If ALL windows…"
"Thanks Russ! I cut and changed all the connections I had with the new shrink connectors but back to square one. The drivers and rear drivers windows go down in "Emergency" only. The passenger front and rear do…"
"Soldering wires makes them brittle. It is a learned skill that is not easily picked up quickly. Most will overheat the wires making them brittle where the solder ends. I'm still learning, so don't worry about it.
It's best to…"
"Best to solder the wires together and use shrink tubing to cover the connection. Butt connectors don't do well where there is a lot of flexing. I would add some additional wire to the broken wires to give it a little more ease…"
Glad i could point you to a solution to the problem you are having with the windows
For a temporary fix you can join that size wire with the wire nuts they use for home wiring and friction tape Over that
If you have good soldering skills…"
"Thanks so much for your reply. Yea I removed the boot and most of the wires were broken with the white w/black tracer just twisted together and taped! I Putin butt connectors I think I'll go over all of them again. At first the drivers door and…"
Have you removed the --rubber wire covering -that is in the door jam when you open the drivers door ?
A good number of wires in there
They are all color coded so do join them all back together if broken
I found a need to add a piece of wire to…"
Hello all, my 1964 62 series has pwindow problems. In 'emergency' not lock or normal I can put down drivers front and rear windows. In 'normal' on window switch nothing works. All wires going through door were either broken or frayed, used connectors on those including yellow/black wire and white/black wire. Same condition. Opened the light relay, tested it and it works, help all! What am I missing?

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back. It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?
