    Good chance this is posted somewhere but I was unable to find so if it a repost:flipoff2:

    Wanted power to my windows and sunroof without the need of the key on.

    3 step process once the drivers side kick panel is removed.

    Step 1 - Remove the relay (noted by arrow) just pull

    .
    Step 2 - Make spade jumper

    .
    Step 3 - Install jumper as pictured

    Now windows and sun roof work without key on

    I tested for a phantom load and measure less then 1 watt = no problem

    I'm sure there are a bus load of nuns cringing somewhere but I don't care

    New added bonus feature see post #76


    :flush:


    Edit: Phantom load of <1watt has been located. :clap:
    If you rarely drive your 80 this could of discharged your battery over a 3 week time period. By removing the lamp for the auto down button you can eliminate the <1watt load if it was an issue. Not sure how I ever found the button in the night.:rolleyes:

    Will this be essentially the same (location/appearance/etc.) on a '91? (I'm assuming you have something newer, because it seems everyone else does :) )

    Any plans to make this switchable with a dash on-off switch? I spoze it's no different than having manual wind-up windows that work all the time ;)

    Awesome. Done. One of the most useful mods ever.

    Now, can you make the electronic seats so they only work with key ON.

    Actually a simple $5 relay under the seat is all you need, the wiring you need is there

    pics work fine for me, sounds useful actually, so does the seat function turned off to keep the kid from messing with it
