One Touch Window Up/Down Install How-To

I just installed a couple of AutoLoc WC1000 control modules in my FJ. They work great. All connections can be made under the driver's window control/door lock control and there's plenty of room under there to mount the controllers.

I drew a schematic that illustrates how everything is wired, which should be attached below.

A few notes:

The instructions say *not* to wire the modules to the window's 12 vDC circuit. Horse pucky! The module doesn't know where the 12 vDC comes from, and the modules don't draw enough additional current to damage the factory wires.

Each module has an inline fuse holder with a 15 amp fuse installed. I removed them and wired them without an additional fuse. If you decide to keep the fuse holders, I'd recommend installing a much lower fuse in each.

Two of the wires on each module are for use with after-market remote systems. I pulled each of them from the harnesses to help reduce the rat's nest of wires.

To clarify something in the schematic, the following four factory wires are cut in half: light blue, light blue/black, red, red/black.

Re: One Touch Window Up/Down Install How-To

So as to make sure I understand what you've done here. This is a mod so you can just tap the switch and the windows will roll down?

Re: One Touch Window Up/Down Install How-To

looks like it gives you one touch up on the windows (a really nice little feature) in addition to one touch down.

Re: One Touch Window Up/Down Install How-To

Yup, one touch, up and down. I installed a module for the driver's side window and another for the passenger side window, so I have one-touch up and down for both windows. The passenger can fend for him or herself.

Re: One Touch Window Up/Down Install How-To

And I guess I should clarify...

"One-touch" is any touch, long or short. Press it once and it starts heading down. Press it again and it stops.

Re: One Touch Window Up/Down Install How-To

I've seen the one touch down...but what stops the one touch up if something is in the window?

Will people lose fingers?

Re: One Touch Window Up/Down Install How-To

^ will I lose fingers?

I don't know. I *assume* the circuit monitors current draw on the motor leads and shuts off when the load starts to go high (as in someone gets a body part in the way or the window reaches the end of its travel). This assumption is based on the fact that there are two different ICs, about 6 transistors, a couple of relays, and one big honking .06 Ohm resistor. Load-sensing circuits typically monitor the load across a very low value resistor. So I'm not worried. If you lose a digit, though, don't blame me.

> where to buy

You can buy directly from AutoLoc: The Hoffman Group - Autoloc - One Touch Up And Down Window Unit - (Up AND Down) but they can be had for about half that price from AutoLoc dealers. I paid $35 for a set of two.

> total install time

Probably an hour to an hour and a half for most folks. After doing it once, you could probably do it again in 30 minutes.
