ah ****, I thought you were rjolly, captain. Sorry man. Seems everyone with the 90+ has it. My '89 FSM mentions nothing of it either. Sucks man. Oh well, I would never be happy with just an auto driver'* down window. I want them all to be auto, but just from the driver'* controls. Both up and down.

Anyone know what makes a window automatic? Like what it really takes?

Basically a module with a big diode (for up to bypass), a relay (to handle the current), and a current sensor (to sense when the window is full down. No big.

Easier to just grab one or more real modules (if from a car in a yard, get as much of the wiring as you can) and do a bit of door rewiring. Should work with any year since they all use the same motor.

Hmm.. doesn't sound too bad. I think a junkyard example would be best. Just make my own, and go from there. My windows have an extreme lack of current, so they are deathly slow [I have confirmed the issue, by hooking a battery directly to the main current wire, and going through the window switch. The tester was super fast.. at least super fast compared to the norm.

One more thing on my list of **** I want on my car

This is a very simple addition. I added the auto down feature to the passenger'* window in my 93. It took all of 2 minutes to wire up a factory controller in that door.

I have it, On both front doors. You can tap the module in. There'* a thread where gave very intimate directions to a 88-91 guy asking the same thing. I think he was canadian with a black car. I even listed '93 wire colors, which I bet someone woul be able to convert to your year.

It should be a black plastic "box" a little smaller than a pack of smokes right in the dirver'* door. Like suggested above, get the 4 wire harness too. Retain the connector that plugs into the window motor and you can cut the other two (pink and blue??). Give yourself at least 6" of wire.

Holy christ u guys are good. So just so i have an understanding, i'd need to put my incoming dark blue to the module'* brown and white, and my brown to the module'* dark blue, and the pink to the module'* pink and the module'* brown to the dark blue also? Here this is better, it'* my best guess. Sorry i'm a little slow on this i'd probably get it if i was looking at it.
