Default electrical / 1st gen runner gurus

so, the rear window in puff the evil wagon was spotting two winters ago, requiring the key to be twisted on/off multiple times to get the window up or down. took the top off last summer, put it on last winter and window and wiper didn't work at all.

wiper is in full park. plug is hooked up. i never pull the eight bolt (locating pin with switch). door lock is down. motor does work.

for the year, i ran jumper wires from motor to an extra battery in the back, but i'd like to fix it.

i tried jumping the two wires on the latch (lock detection switch) after someone said that fixed theirs....nothing.

so broke out the manual. first test is the switch. up and down individual continuities are good, but pins 3 and 4 should have continuity in all three positions and have none in any position.

before i plunk down $90 for a new switch, shouldn't i be able to jump the wires for 3 and 4 to emulate continuity?

Hey Ige, I'm not much good at this. I had to replace the tailgate close switch once but that was it.

Ige,
I'm not first hand familiar with that trouble shoot but to me it reads that 3-4 is an illumination or back-light and to run the motor you need to jump 2-5 to make it motor up or jump 1-2 to make it motor down.

If hitting the switch over and over used to work I would suspect the switch 1st (a relay or self-resetting breaker could also behave that way if either exists in the circuit but I'm guessing not).

Plugging in Cheesmans switch for testing sounds like the way to go

there's a circuit breaker, there's a relay, there's about four different safety switches....this is a serious wtf setup.

i saw the illumination thing after i'd posted this. any reason illumination could affect the operation (i wouldn't think so)?

Yes jumping pins 1-2 or 2-5 should result in up/down operation. There is a connector under the passenger front seat that can, in rare cases, corrode too FYI.

There is a top bolt in the left rear 2nd or 3td from the rear(?) that keeps the window and wimer from working. Likewise if the window and wiper switches aren't in proper position neither will work.

thanks justin. i'll check for that this weekend

bvb, the bolt is in (it's really jsut a pin, so i've never taken it out) and the wiper is all the way up, unless maybe when i pulled it to paint it, i didn't get it splined correctly. i'll have to check that.
