Having trouble getting to controlling power windows from driver and passengers seat controllers.

  Can only operate windows from DRIVERS controls with lockout switch in EMERGENCY POSITION.

  Just  replaced power window relay with a known working relay-- still not working in any position other than emergency.

QUESTIONS::  What COLOR WIRE  lead is supposed to operate the Power Window relay. Which color wire leads are cut through the relay contact AND is /which one of them is the hot lead side ?

Looks like i called this one
Glad you are on your way to solve your window issue
Enjoy having the power windows working

Do be looking for wiring that is broken under its covering
Bending the wire around a bit will show broken spots under the wire covering if they exist



Sure does. Will be replacing that section AND checking all the other PRIOR repairs to those wires while I am at it.  55 year old wires -- many still with cloth tape falling off.

Thanks for the help. Gave me an opportunity to understand how the power to the windows works- well worth the effort. May have been a fire waiting to happen too.

Still need to clean up wiring in both passenger side  and rear drivers side after the drivers.


Many of my wire and soldering skills have been developed by building and flying large RC aircraft for 23 years
I have had an interest in flying model aircraft since i was 14 years old ( 74 now )
In NY i was flying RC aircraft with the engineers from Gruman and Speary aircraft factories on Long Island
The boys were building space shuttles during the week and flying RC aircraft in there leasure time and on weekends
These guys were all about Flying stuff as you could imagine !

The gentelman that does all the aluminum welding work on my sons race boat did most of the construction on the first space shuttle to the moon and many other combat aircraft

When we need something done we go right to --the head of the class --when doing any research on a given subject to share our passion for that subject


My brother had that interest in flying model gas powered planes as well. They built planes and had competition and shows near teterboro airport in NJ when we were teens. Got me interested in building planes and model boats as well. He had the flying ability especially for the control line planes.

So today I get back to the wiring in my daughters 64 deville convert. Very poor connections yet--a step at a time.

Thanks to all for the help!

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

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 do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

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?
