Window Lock Switch Bypass for Passenger's Window


Hi all,

Got little ones who like to play with the window switches in the back seat ? 8(
Got a partner who gets frustrated when they can't open their passenger's window when you have the lock switch on to stop the little one in the back from playing with their window ? emoticon

Here is the answer.
With a simple cut of a circuit board track and soldering of a jumper wire between two pins on the circuit board, the lock switch can be bypassed for the passenger's window while still locking the rear windows. emoticon

Step 1: Remove the switch panel from the driver's door handle and undo the three screws holding the control box to the trim.

Step 2: Remove the black switch cover from the control box by unclipping the 4 tabs as shown in the following photo. There are 2 clips on each side.

Step 3: With the circuit board now accessible, cut the track as shown by the black box in the following photo and solder a jumper wire between the 2 pins shown with red boxes in the photo.

Kev, that's a great idea, and am sure I'll be needing this shortly when my young ones are of age also.

Now just to clarify what do you mean by "cut the track"? Do you mean make a gouge or something into the circuit board?

Yep, that's what he means. You can use a stanley knife or I like to use a small drill bit and just twist (with my hand) left to right until the track is broken.

Great idea Kev, but in my case, I have to fight with my wife to get her to open her window to let some fresh air in, she doesn't use her window at all (in summer it's too hot and in winter it's too cold) LOL emoticon

Re: Window Lock Switch Bypass for Passenger's Window


I have the same problem as Jalal.

I love driving with all windows open and the sunroof but always get outvoted by the shreiking wails 'It's cold, OMG it's so hot, put the air on, put the air on'

No one listens when I say, get some fresh air, smell it, isn't it great?..... of course it doesn't help my case when we drive up behind a semi spewing black soot all over the place and we gasp deep draughts of deisel fumes as we frantically rush to close everything up.

Of course, then I cop the inevitable, see this is why you brought the in-cabin filter......... emoticon

Noel,
For this I used a Dremel with a grinding disc because the track is very wide at that point. Any other point along the track and the mod will not work as there are link holes through to the other side of the board which will jumper the cut.
As Naff said you could use a drill or stanley knife, but these are usually best for thin tracks.

Jalal & Jamie,
This mod also allows you to operate the passenger's window from the driver's controls when the lock switch is on.

Good stuff Kev.

Did you also work-out how can the passenger window go up automatically without holding the control up/down until it's closed or opened?

This unfortunately is a switch, lever and circuit change as the CPU controls the UP relay to cut it off when the driver's window reaches the top position as signalled by a pulse-encoder. emoticon

Compare page GW-35 with page GW-36 in the service manual and you will understand what I mean.

Re: Window Lock Switch Bypass for Passenger's Window


Hey Kev, what about getting the sunroof to close with one-touch instead of having to sit there with your finger on the button?

It works when opening it - one touch and it goes by itself for 3/4 of the way and then you have to press and hold for the last 1/4, maybe this can be reversed????? emoticon

All these mods are great but I would not attempt them until the warrantee runs out and for me that's another year so you have a little time to ponder this one mate! emoticon

Maybe next year when you come up for holidays, you can come over and play with my car for awhile, I'll shout the BBQ and Beer. emoticon
