relay kit for gen 1 rx7 powerwindows! *now with pics*

#1 Post by sim_rx3 » Tue Apr 19, 2005 9:35 am

ok first of all are you "door checks" ok (the rubber bits the window travels up and down in)??

if they look old replace them they are easy to do.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE YOU TO USE GREASE ETC TO LUB THE CHANNEL THAT THE WINDOW TRAVELS IN.

it wasnt done from factory and isnt needed doing now, as its only a band aid solution that only fixes the problem for a little while.
it will only fill the channel with dust later and make it harder for the window to move. so dont do it.

now to check window adjustment -

put ya window up half way and open your door. now as you stand at the back of the door move ya window backwards and forwards.

does the window move much?

if so then its badly out of adjustment which will contribute to your window not working properly either.

take ya door trim off and at the front inside part of the door you will see a bolt with an elongated hole it is in. this is your window adjustment.

loosen bolt and reach inside the door and grab the inner bar that is attatched to it and move it towards the back of the car.
once it gets a little hard to pull back (dont yank it) tighten bolt.

then stand at back of door again and move window backwards and forwards. there should only be a little movement so keep adjusting until you get this.

if its fully adjusted back and the window moves backwards and forwards alot then rubbers (door checks) definetly need replaceing.

ok also to stop ya power window switches from carboning up and slowing ya windows down aswell or not making them work properly. i can make the windows work better as i also sell a plug and play relay kit for the gen 1 power windows.

your window switches can be pulled apart and cleaned as well. but they will eventually carbon up again

so now ive developed a kit that fits into the gen 1 power window circuit and im starting to build them.

basically what happens if you buy the kit is basically you unplug the powerwindow switch from the car loom near the console where the switches are mounted.

then plug my kit into the original plugs and wala

the switches will work the relays and the relays will work the window motors. just plug and play. :wink:

no more carbonised contacts stopping your powerwindows from working.

you dont have to be an auto electrician to install it as its plug and play.

ps if ya powerwindows dont work at all (ie no power or broken wire) atm then the kit wont fix the problem.

you need to either clean the contacts of the switch or find the broken wire thats not making the windows work first before installing the kit.


pps i am currently working on a second gen version too its a bit more involved so will be a little dearer as it uses 6 relays unlike the first gen only using 4.

all connections soldered -

Image

the unit ready to be installed (note i didnt just use blue spade connectors, i used proper relay bases so if a relay ever shits itself ya just unplug the relay and plug a new one in without having to worry about where wires go!) -

Image

how it looks before install (passenger side seat needs to be removed) -

Image

installation - ive kept the 2 relays separate so there is no confusion on the install. basically ya unplug the powerwindow switch from the loom.
now plug my unit into the loom and the plug that sits beside it will plug into the switch!

Image

Image

now fully installed ready to work -

Image

place the carpet back and its done -

i hope i dont get flamed for this, but i think the price is a little too much, considering you can do it yourself with the readily available instructions for a fraction of the cost. i understand that this is plug in and play, but then i think most people on here are pretty tight and would prefer to spend 1hr or two doing it themselves to save $150 or so

Exactly, dont take this the wrong way, but the price is way to high.

You should be able to get a few relays, wire and a few plugs for well under $100.

If you guys were to make a kit how much would you charge? 50-100 bucks? It wouldnt be worth while.
If i ever get some cash ill be getting a kit for my first gen. I think the price is fair. :)

i have absolutely no idea what it does :? maybe i missed something?

All i know is it has something to do with your electric windows.

Is it a replacement for the center console bit or something?

i think ill re-read your post, might have missed something :(

Yeah like whats the advantage to it? from what i see it jus makes the windows go up and down like my other switches. So does it eliminate having 2 switches? Or it jus makes the contact better therefore making the windows work better?

It reduces the time it takes for the windows to go up and down. All of the power goes through those switches and when they get dirty or burnt a bit, it slows everything down. By using relays, alot less power goes through the actual switches and it speeds everything up.

Yep! No changes to the switch arrangement. This is just the wiring behind the scenes.

ok then sounds ok but to be honest i wouldnt pay $200. Maybe some people would and goodluck but for me anything over $100 isnt worth my windows going up a bit quicker! But ill be interested to see the final price so keep us posted. :wink:

i have brought the relays to do this, just need to get motivated and find out what plugs it has and then go steal some from a wreckers, relays only cost me $20 and i cant see the new plugs and a bit of wire costing much more than $20, so if it takes you an hour to put it all togther, which since your an auto elec i cant see it even taking that long then i reckon $75 - $100 would be fair.

Just my 2c
