    Window motor rewire

    Has anyone used the rewire kit from autotrix.net? I guess the original wiring under powers your motors so this takes the battery power and directs it to your motor.

    I've done it. Gave my stock passenger side motor about another year before it died. Before I did the autotrix kit it would only go up about 3/4 of the way.

    It's one of the few things I will say is a "must do" on f bodies.

    It's not to difficult to do (unless colorblind, the instructions can be hard to read the pics) takes about an hour to do. I did mine 4 yrs ago and still have the same window motor going strong.

    Hardest part for me was running the power wire through the firewall and through the door...other than that it's pretty easy to do.

    I agree it is something everybody should do.

    My pass window now beats my driver's window to the up postion by about three seconds. I had to solder the connections. you will have to be patient in snapping the window switch plate back into the armrest. There is zero extra room after the autotrix kit is installed.

    I'm thinking about doing new motors plus the kit. Do they make one for the drivers window?

    Drivers side doesn't really need it...the drivers side tends to get most of the juice before the autotrix kit is installed so you won't need it after you get the passenger side done.

    New motors never hurt...lots of write ups on how to do the replacement of the motors.

    i did ran into the same issue and I opted to put the relays inside the passenger trim next to the passenger floor area. It was not that hard to do. Way easier to install the window switch plate.

    That is a good idea. Double the soldering, but a good idea. Unless you re-wired the connectors for the relays?

    I didn't soldered anything I just rewired. As a note I started to noticed the window will not go up sometimes and it ended up been the relay itself not making good contact internally. So before going crazy looking at wires try the relay.

    replaced my pass side motor 3 years ago. Works as well as driver's side without rewiring, but window doesn't go up and down that much as its a vert and the top stays down all summer

    I think I soldered 1 or 2 things when I did the autotrix kit but thats just because I wanted to.

    On a side not, I went and got smaller butt connectors because the ones that came with the kit were really big and I needed to save space to put everything back under the window switch in the door. I also cut lot of the wiring to get rid of the extra that was not needed. Somebody already referenced it but once you do the wiring, you have to get everything to fit under the window switch panel in the door handle and its a tight fit...so save space where you can. You'll see what I mean after you do it.
