I know there is a DSM VFaq on this, but I pulled my Galant window switch out and it doesn't look the same. I know I've heard this mod is possible but I searched for about 20 mins and couldn't find a how-to on here. If anyone has any pics, diode info, or help it would be appreciated. Thanks,


Justin

dei makes a module called the 530t window automation unit. it works with an aftermarket alarm to roll up the windows when armed and uses an auxiliary to roll them down or vent. and also converts your window switch to one touch up and down. it controls only 2 windows so if you want to do all for you will need 2 units. i have these in my car. but i wired them directly to the motors in each door so that you get the option at the door switch and the master on the drivers door. i also have a close up controller that closes my sunroof when i arm my alarm. i recommend both they are life savers. many a times have i left the sunroof open or a window cracked open. but thanks to these nifty controllers when i arm my alarm it closes them all up.

Thanks for that info, but I'm not really looking for anything aftermarket. The factory switch is made to do it, but the simple circuit isn't there. I know I have to cut the stop tab off, but I need to find out what diode, and where to solder it in. The 1G circuit boards are slightly different.

So after some time looking at it, talking to a few old-school GVR4 guys, I was able to figure this out. You need to use the same 1A Diode that's in the DSM Vfaq, but solder it in the second slot. There is an open slot with a diode symbol on it. Just follow the Vfaq, but not the placement.

Just for posterity, I did this mod following the vfaq and instructions from EMX5636 and my window now has auto up.

Sorry for digging up the old thread.

Justin- you could have made this very easy on yourself and just popped the one out of my galant at JNZ to look at it.

I did this last night. Took me all of about 10 minutes. 6 of them were spent finding my soldering torch and solder. Works perfectly.

You might want to see if the couple guys that just did it took some. I might have had pics of mine, but that was 4 years ago, so no idea where they are hiding. Worst case, it gives me a reason to tear the D/S door apart to fix the speaker.

Didn't think I'd ever like the auto-up feature until I had the V and I sure miss that...I have an auto down but only on the driver's side and wished the pass side did too...Wouldn't mind auto up/down in the vr-4. the worst "auto" function ever was on the wife's Mazda 6, that would roll down the windows via keyfob. neat in theory until you sit on the button (had to hold down the unlock IIRC) and the windows go down when it's raining, lol.

One of the times I really liked the auto-up was tolls. It was nice to just tap the button, and be able to roll/shift away from the booth in the rain without worrying about the window in the rain. Now I have EZ-pass and it doesn't matter as much.

And as much as I hate VW, I like their setup to put up or down all windows by inserting the key into the DS front door, and turning/holding to lock or unlock. It would be nice to open the windows on a hot day, and quick to put them all up if it's raining without getting in the car, turning the ignition etc.

I'm guessing this is what you want photos of.



Compare to your own, and you will see exactly what was done.

Yup, just break off the tab in the switch, and solder that little guy right in that spot. Bam, JDM hotness auto-up. Thanks for the pics!

Could you have both what?
Are you asking for pics of the switch?

Just cut the little tab off the front of the driver's window switch. It prevents the switch from being pressed down far enough to get the little solenoid underneath to engage and hold it down. Once that's gone and the diode is in there, it works great.

Maybe he's asking both auto down and auto up

You know it's been so long since I drove the car, I can't recall if it has auto down oem or not and if so, is it on both the front windows?

Auto down is stock. Auto up was likely not "allowed" here due to "safety concerns". Although, newer cars have auto up.

My veloster has auto up, but it also has some thing where if the window meets much resistance, it goes back down all the way.

thanks for info...thought maybe it had auto down, but it's been so long wasn't 100%.

Yeah, auto up can be a concern with small kids, but sure they maust have some safeguards...take it this one (mod) wouldn't though? Not a big deal though, but something to be aware of with kids, I guess.

my sunroof on the truck has auto open/close and wonder if it has the sensor...
