Hotwiring Switches

So i think even though i had my immobilizer cleaned up i think the part of it that allows me to control my windows with the switch is still messed up. since ive confirmed that my windows will go down (when i activate the top) can i just run a jumper wire from the switch to the window motor?

Have you checked your window switches? That seems a lot more logical to me. Guessing your thread title is causing people to avoid your thread.

It could be done, but you should fix the issue.

If you didn't feed them through a relay, the switches will be toast in no time. They are not meant to carry a load...and they aren't cheap.
