You will have to solder them using a pencil soldering iron.

I am having problems with the passenger side front window, seems the reverse polarity issue

Depends on your car.. power comes from the master switch. Ground is threw the BCM. I f you have a power problem, it is in the boot at the door( wire broken) or the master switch. The reverse polarity is from switches. Master or the passenger side.

The 3rd passenger car has short in it and causes green light on cw80 to blink. Checked wires and contacts on trucks can't find problem.

Lionel uses insulated wheels on there power pickup trucks , one side will have insulation bands and one will not , insulated bands need to be all same side on same truck , lead end is different than tail end this is how it picks up power from tracks , sometimes trucks axles get popped out in playing and maybe don't get popped back in the same way , also its possible for insulating bands to get holes in them from use , a dot or two of black latex paint fixes these up (don't paint entire wheel)

When I my brand new Lionel train on the track, the red light goes out. Is there a short in the loco?? This isa the Polar Express 73-0218-250 model Xmas is tomorrow!!

I am assuming that the throttle is off when you put the train on the track. If off, then you are correct that there is an internal short in the engine. You might try disassembling the unit and looking for a pinched wire specifically from a roller(s) (center rail pickup). You might also check for a short between a pickup roller and a wheel with a VOM. Make sure the wheel is not the one with the neoprene belt.

Battery operated polar express engine does not work

these are all basically at the same time in sequence,

1. test batteries, need at least 75-80% power for train to operate at all. will be very weak but should operate. or use known good batteries.

2. next are the battery contacts. a lot of time the positive contact gets bent so far it either makes no or very weak contact, simply bend it back out very carefully to make better contact and clean it with a little rubbing alcohol of nail polish remover and a q-tip.
3. next would be the switch for continuity and then loose or broken wire.
after that you can email me for further help.

A piece on the wheel broke on the polar express, but I can't find the name of the part

If you are speaking of the BIG drive wheels, the first one and the last one are called Flanged Drive Wheels. If they are the ones in between the flanged wheels, without flanges, they are called blind drivers.
If you are speaking of the little wheels attached to the front truck, they are called the leading wheels. The little ones attached to the rear truck are called Trailing Wheels.

Polar express battery powered wood engine works and then doesn't

Try forcing a tiny hex screwdriver in the triangular hole.

Almost certainly a lose wire that you can solder back.

A great sense of achievement will result given that you didn't have to buy another one from China and trash yours!

So annoying that Brio have to use these screws given how flaky their toys are - they are almost designed to fail as the wires are so short they break quite quickly.

Good luck!
