Question about 1983 GMC Rally

1 Answer

I was driving along the highway and was going to open my window. I accidently hit the lock/unlock switch instead and heard a pop. After the pop the van died on me as i rolled to the shoulder of the road. The engine wouldn't turn and the four way's wouldn't work. What do you think the problem is?

You probaly burned out a fusible link. Look for a red wire that has a short piece of black wire connected to it. That black wire may be burned. It may be near the big stud on the starter or near a main junction block.

Door won't open


The bottom portion will pop off the metal portion of the door.I usually grab the little plastic "christmas trees" with needle nosed pliers and use a large screwdriver as a lever. If you need to go further, you will need to remove arm rest and the inner door handle. The top portion along the window can be freed by hitting it in, and up with the heel of your hand. (in one shot) Most times the connecting rod gets pulled off the latch and pretty likely you can reach it from under the bottom and re-connect it (plastic clip retainer may be broken or found inside bottom of door where it fell.)

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.
