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

I recently took my car to a “Cadillac” “Specialist here in Los angles CA.

After leaving my car to diagnose my steering column for not shifting properly. I get this txt from the shop owner. Mind you I just got the car and wanted to at least shift from the column without having to shift for the engine bay. Also wanted to get a price on dash lights to work. Basically I’m trying to feel out if he’s putting gravy on the labor.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then. 

Still having…

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.
