'66 Electric Window Wiring Diagrams

Need some help here. My electrical wiring diagrams have everything, but the electric windows. Does anybody have them or link please?

Thanks,

I would imagine the wiring (and as such the wiring diagram) is identical to that used in a Pontiac Parisian or an Olds 88 or Buick Electra 225. There may be a little difference in the switches used as the d├ęcor changed from year to year but the switches all function the same even if they look different from one year to the next and from marquee to marquee.

Knowing how GM likes to use one part as often as possible I will wages every switch was used at one time or another appeared in every make and model year of all of GM's cars just so they could mix them up stylistically. So what was accurate for your year Chevy might have been used the following year in a Caddy or a Olds. It would take some detective work to trace them down looking at sales brochures to identify the switch used since the universal GM part numbers are top secret (can't have Cadillac owners buying cheaper Chevrolet parts even if it is the same part used in all of GM's cars we have to charge more for the high priced spread).

This should be about the same, it's a 1966 Buick link:

I've done a number of power window conversions on 65-66 cars and that diagram looks correct although I certainly can recall if the wire colours are the same in that Buick schematic.

Chris, is there a particular problem you are chasing? The system is pretty basic so it should be fairly easy to narrow down where the issue is if there is one.

Paul, Thanks for the link. I just now am able to sit down and look at it. Looks pretty straight forward. I can work with this. Thanks again.

Darth,

No problems, Yet. The S-I-L has stated she has had issues in the past with the windows. I just wanted to be able to trace them out, if I needed to. I want to check the operation of each window, while the inside is ripped out. If I find a problem I can't handle...Rest assured, I'll be asking.

Make sure you check the wiring in the area between the door and the body (pillar) where it comes through. The number one weak point for power window wiring is broken wires from flexing when the doors open and close.
