Does anyone have, or know where I can get details for removing the dash. I want to add power windows and door locks ( I got a wiring loom from a 1993). To get the loom I just busted everything away....... can't do that now

On the driver side, the window/door lock module has the power lead either pulling away from the connection or has broke entirely. Another common cause is the wire harness between the door jam, this is the area that has a rubber boot covering the wires and from opening and closing the door, it creates a broken or loose connection over time. Open the driver side door, grab the rubber boot that the wires run thru, and move it around. Some times this will help create the connection and restore the power. If not, the door panel will need to be removed to inspect the wire connections.
I would try to repair the wiring that is damaged with similar gauge wire, solder and use heat shirk tubing. Trying to replace the entire harness would be rather involved. I would remove all the aftermarket electronics.
its an aftermarket add on. alot of those are installed by a third party at the dealership when new. most are shoddy installations and fail sooner or later. look under dash if you see plastic zip ties and plastic crimp on wire splicers then thats what you got. remove entire system and replace it with a new one
Very common. The rubber diaphrams and checkvalve o rings do not last forever, and they begin to leak. The most common one is the driver side's vacuum door lock valve. This one is activated when your key turns the lock and diverts the valve's vacuum, which activates the other door's plungers to open. This is the one to fix first, and it requires that you remove the inside door hardware and panel to reach it. Buy a new valve ahead of time so you don't have to take it apart again. Then try the system. If it works but still not well, then get ready to test the other vacuum pods: Trunk, gas cap, center dash (HVAC). The center dash pod is fairly common and a bit difficult to reach (I would go through the center dash' vent with one hand, and the removed glovebox with the other) to replace the center. Check the web for the detail on that one because it requires taking the pod apart while its still attached to its bracket under the dash) Not fun, but better than removing the entire dash. In the end, troublshooting - specially without a vacuum pump (you can get a hand held one from an autostore) - is tedious and is by trial and error and replacing the pods. But, either you do it, or be charged $75/hr and no gaurantee the leak can be found. New door valve is about $20 and the dash pod $25.
I do not know what part number it is, but you can cut this connector from a wrecked vehicle and then remove the pins, noting there location, to remove the pins you will have to use a jewelers screwdriver to push in the connector and release the locking tabs, do the same to yours, be careful not to break the locking tabs that lock the wire ends inside the connector, then push your wires into that connector to repair, or you can cut the wire long on the wrecked one and then barrel splice the connections to your harness, use heat shrink on each splice connection to ensure that moisture does not become a problem. Hope this helps, let me know.
