Where is the relay located in the window motor ?
Is that the relay which energizes the electric motor to run on the higher current output side ?
You need to diassemble the window motor to get to the relay ?

Enjoy

Hi Jason

This video ( as usual) is very helpful.

Is failure of this relay why the windows won't work except through the emergency switch?

Thanks.

I'll bypass the switch, It's the easiest way to go and I don't want to add anything that's not necessary.

Thanks Jason

I would bypass unless you plan on adding a lock out switch... and then you run the possibility of where to mount the switch if your 63 has power door locks, since the 63 power door lock switches were mounted at very front of arm rest switch plate, instead of up on the door panel as in 1964.

Thanks Jason,

I am in the process of adding power vent windows to my '63 convertible and bought a harness from a '64 Eldorado and noticed the connector for the relay switch on it. I didn't think the '63s had the relay. I suppose I could either bypass the relay switch on the new harness or add a relay with the new harness.

Ian, The 1964 Window Relay works in conjunction with the Cut-Out switch (lock out switch), found on 1964 Cadillacs but not on 1963 Cadillacs. It is located behind the carpeted lower left kick panel and mounted to the car body via 2 5/16" hex head metal screws. It is referenced in the 1964 Cadillac Shop Manual on page 16-110, Fig 16-128. I have insured a crop in of the llustration seen in Fig 16-128 below:

Jason, Thank you for another helpful video. A couple questions: Where in the car is the relay located and is a '63 the same as a '64?

Thanks, Ian

where do I find a new and better motor?

Posted by john kilbourne on May 24, 2018 at 11:43am 11 Comments

My '64 convert is getting better, but the engine remains questionable. Starts and runs well enough, powerful, but I think I hear a main bearing banging, the balance is not great and I'd like to upgrade to fuel injection if I can.

Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?

Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…
