Check power line going into the driver door. Wires often break in this area. Also check connector and wiring at switch below arm rest switch panel.

Heavy 10 gauge red wire that connect to upper right side of fuse panel as pictured above.

would anyone know which wire runs to the window terminal on the fuse box. i have nothing hooked up and my windows have no power, thought that might be good first step.1963 deville if that matters.

If you have power seats and windows you should have a large 40 amp circuit breaker fuse as seen in upper right of picture below. If you need one and can't find one I have them in good working order (and better looking than one below) for $5 + s/h. Here is the picture:

My fuse will blow if i roll down more than 1 window at a time any insight on that?

Thanks for the info. As you probably know the 63s windows are always hot, key or not. As a child I would sit in my grandfather's 63 CDV, the one I have now, and play with the power windows & power seats all the time. Back then only the finest cars had these features. Just one of the many reasons I fell in love with this car.

Thanks Jason. That thing was hid good.

The Lock Out switch was a new feature for 1964 that allowed the driver to "lock out" passengers from controlling their windows (good for small kids in car) or in Emergency position you could operate all windows without key. Good for emergency where key is not in the ignition or not working. (I use it to show off my power vent windows when I don't have my keys with me!)

Just to add, the lockup switch is on the very front of the arm rest switch panel where the Power Door Lock switch had been in 1963.  For 1964 if you had power door locks on the Deville and Fleetwood 60S the swich was up on the door.  This is why when someone asks for a 63 /64 arm rest switch plate I follow up with about a 1/2 dozen questions because there are so many variations if you have power vents, power door locks, right sight power bucket seat, and the particular year.

Here's the typical 1964 arm rest switch plate with 4 way window switch and lockup switch and power bench seats:

Here's one with Right side power bucket seat control, power side window and power vent window cutouts.

Jason, just for my education, do 63s have a cutout switch relay?

OK. Here's a new trivia. There is at least one main standard (non-option) item that one could "delete" on a new 1963 or 1964 Cadillac for a reduced cost.  What is it?  For extra cigars, what is the…Continue

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…


Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted by Doug Scarrow on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 1 Comment

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
