    window closure

    just recieved my window closure mod from lad of here, and wired it in as said


    red to 12v power on the (thick red wire on the 12pin holder in drivers kick panel)

    white to earth (thick brown wire on same loom)

    green to black/blue wire on 24 pin holder

    got out the car opened window deadlocked and nothing, opened car and the box was smoking so ripped it out and its all melted inside

    why would this be as this is the way he told me to wire it up??

    did you put the earth onto the earth stud or connect it to another wire coz im guessing that would be your problem. i havent got one of these but the earth needs to be on the earth stud

    It didn't work because you'll probably find the output wire was connected to power or earth. Crap instructions

    and a waste of a tenner, for the bloke making them i find it hard to believe he dont know how to wire them in, will his kit be safe or will it be one of them boxs that you dont know whats inside, i can take a pic of inside for your view so i know whether to get a lmf one or one of these again

    is there a way to make my own with a relay so i know its all safe for my car

    If it's the same bloke i'm thinkiing it is I agree with you. Selling a unit with no idea how to wire it up, I wonder if he really knew what the input and output were and what polarity they were. Only reason I didn't help was because I wasn't certain which wire was which on his unit

    I'd get a LMF one
