You can change the harness from the existing to the new yes . It's not very hard either. No there is no way to use the window in the meantime. If you attempt to force it you will damage the window regulator. I would confirm caution you to be patient installing the harness as the connectos can be a little tricky to undo.

What is the best way to replace the 1p connecter on the driver side fan

Go to a junk yard. Locate the connector you want and cut the wires long enough to be able to splice onto the wires in your car. Use crimp on connectors to splice the new connector onto the wires of the connector in your car

Drivers window will not go up

We have a 16 year old car. The windows started having problems. We found out that the wire harness that runs to the window and door lock controls in the drivers door control panel was getting warn out. The constant opening and closing of the door over the years wears out the wires at the bend in the door hinge. We got a replacement harness from a junk yard and replaced it. Much improvement, but since we replaced it with a used part, now that is wearing out again and having problems again. Why do new replacement parts have to cost so much?

I have a 96 Honda civic lx....none of my windows will roll down. I have checked all the fuses and relays, I'm not getting any power to the driver door.......also my power locks don't seem to be...

This is an easy fix and very common to civics. When I bought my car it had the same exact thing and I bought this part (plug) at the junk yard for 2.00 dollars and you can start by removing the driver side fender and you will see a black rubber that covers the plug with all the wiring that runs too the door cut the plug off and replace it with a good plug with the one your going too buy at the junk yard you can use tape or anything that wont make contact with the other wires but what sucks about it is that you need too do it one by one and just match the wire colors together and good as new hope this helps!

Window on the driver side will not operate - the passenger side works fine

look for a broken wire in the rubber boot where you open the door or try a new switch from a junk yard

Power Windows only Work from Drivers Side

Maybe, but before you do, take a look in the loom (plastic coil with wires all inside it) that runs from area of hinges across from pillar to door. Open the loom up and take a close look at the wires in there for damage, cuts, corrosion etc, that may indicate a weak spot or break in wire(s) Not uncommon for that to happen as that door is always opening and closing, and causing that condition from bending all the time.

Power door lock problem

more than likely a bad switch. If your good with a multimeter and understand the electrical system. You can bypass the switch with your multimeter wires and see if the switch is bad. or you can just purchase a used one from the junk yard, swap it out. If it works then its the switch. if thats not the problem you need to follow the wires from the switch to the locks. Its not a long path.
Also check both fuse box's one on the passanger side inside the car and one under the hood on the drivers2.gif side.

Cae was stolen and recovered. they broke the ignition. how do I replace the steering column Is it necessary to replace the entire column?


I am sure this would work by just replacing the ignition switch, not the entire steering column.

However it also depends on how bad was it broken.

Please let us know for future assistance.

I have a 1983 Olds Delta 88. The electric window on the front driver's side doesn't work. The other windows do. On the door console with the switches, can I hot wire something with the other wires to...

Is there an option to replace the window motor?  Perhaps a junk yard has one that you could pick up for pretty cheap, or AutoZone would carry it.
