PostSubject: Electric window over-ride KZH100 '95   Sat Sep 04, 2010 10:52 am

G'day folks - I want to operate the electric windows when the ignition is off. I imagine this means providing a switched power supply bypassing the ignition switch (suitably fused) to the window control circuit. It's always a pain to have to turn the ignition on again just to close the windows or leave the keys with the vehicle if someone is left inside. It would be great to have a push switch on the dash which would temporarily power the windows if pressed. Has anyone tried this? Any ideas where is can get a wiring diagram? My van is a KZH100 - 1995

Dandy - you had me going for a minute there. I had a confidence crisis and was wondering just how thick I really was to have missed this! But alas - no - my van does not have this feature. I will keep trying to find a solution myself and if I crack it, I'll let you all know.
Thanks for the replies.

Cracked it!

I took the window operating switch panel from the driver's door, identified the wire which supplied power to the unit and connected it to the 12V supply to the door light. The door light (the one in the panel below door handle) always comes on when the door is open. If the door is open, security is no longer a problem, so why not then be able to operate the windows? (this was BMW's thinking years ago).

The wire to the door light is a bit thin - but as long as you operate the windows one at a time, hopefully it won't become overloaded.

Remove the window operating panel from the door panel - it should be easy to lever it out (no screws). In my case the wire supplying power is the plain blue one - a bit thicker then the rest - at the back of the plug. Remove the door light - two screws. The wires to the light are red (12V) and red-black trace(earth). If you work carefully you can feed a wire from one hole to the next without even removing the door panel. But it is quite easy to pop the studs on the bottom of the panel and feed through the wire. Two squish connectors and 450mm of wire later and you're in business.

Hope this is useful to others.

Cheers - Phil
