Question about 1990 Ford Probe

1 Answer

1989 to 1990 Powered door conversion

I have a 1990 Ford Probe LX (3.0 L) with non powered doors or windows, I ran across a 1989 LX (2.2L) with powered doors and windows so I snagged them; Little did I know the wiring harnesses are slightly different. I went back to the junk yard and cut off the original harness clips (for the doors) and spliced them onto my 1990 harness; now the windows and door locks do not work, but the switches do activate the relays.

** Some things I noticed **

The 1990 door locks according to the wiring diagram in the Chilton shows 3 wires, but the 1989 door lock has 2 (GRN/BK & BL/R ... I think)

I have the following wires left over: W/R, BK, GRN/Y.

The W/R wires, R/W, and BK/GRN are for the Door lock system, but I don't know what to do with the 3rd wire. (W/R)

The power windows were pretty straight forward, those two harness clips matched up exactly so I assumed they would just work.

Has anyone tried to do this conversion before with success? Is it possible my regulators are bad? maybe relays? I assume the door lock relay is not bad because it is also used for the seat belts and they work. Please help!!!

Cheerz!
Matt

About the only advice i can give is that i did the same thing with a 94 probe base and a 94 gt. i had to take the whole wiring harness out of the gt and put it in the base. It starts from the inside fuse block, goes to both doors, under the front seats, all the way to the fuel pump, abs, tail lights, and pretty much everything from the dash to the rear of the car. If you can get a whole harness, it should work.

You need a flat head screwdriver to remove the light cover and the door lock and window switch. and a phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws, the one under the door/window switch could also be a small bolt. (When removing the door/window switch cover pull back on the door handle or you will scratch the cover when removing it). Then pull straight up on the hand bar and you can slip door/window switch cover through the hole.

Hi:
You can get used door glass from an auto salvage yard, for not too much cash. They aren't hard to install, and your doors are already painted and match the car.

Accessing the speaker on driver side door panel.


You will have to remove the entire door cover. Remove any screws you can see, pop off the cover behind the door handle remove screws behind that, pop off the plastic that holds power window switches and unplug them, then you will have to pull the door panel upwards to remove.

How do i remove the passenger window in a 1994 ford probe gt?


Door Glass and Regulator REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Lower the window glass and remove the inner handle cover, door lock knob (if necessary), the window regulator handle and the door trim panel. NOTE: On vehicles with power windows, disconnect the wiring couplings.
  2. Carefully peel off the door screen so that it can be reused.
  3. Replace the window regulator handle and position the door glass so that the door glass installation bolts can be removed from the service hole.
  4. Remove the door glass installation bolts.
  5. Remove the door glass. Remove the regulator installation bolts, and then remove the regulator through the service access hole. Remove the window motor mounting bolts and separate the motor from the regulator.
  6. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. If the vehicle is equipped with power windows, connect the leads of the motor to a battery and run the regulator to the down position before installing the motor. Cycle the window several times to make sure that everything is in good working order.
The door glass retaining bolts can be removed through the access hole
