[DML] Re: Electrical problem

I would check the continuity of all the LGW wires to be sure there 
are no shorts or open circuits. The AC panel lights should be bright 
with key on and dimmed with light switch activated (unless a 
different relay without a center post put in to turn off the ac panel 
when the running lights are off - these were at one time gotten at 
Radio Shack) there is a run to the clock and radio (in-line fused on 
OEM) then the two window switches.

It is very common for the window motors to "lock-up" because of 
friction or resistance in the window mechanism. Sometimes you can get 
the motor to run by rapidly tapping the switch in the direction you 
need to go or helping the window out by applying hand assistance, if 
you can. The adjustments for the window are tedious and, you should 
be able to open and close the window by hand before you install the 

Have you put an amp meter in the window circuit to see if the window 
is taking power even though the window does not open or close?
