Exclamation DIY: Power window install w/ SPAL window kit


This is my tutorial on how to install power windows in a CRX utilizing the JDM power window switches and the SPAL power window kit.

The diagram attached shows how I did it. You dont necessarily have to do it my way, but this method worked out fine for me.

Here are the items I bought to do this whole project:

- SPAL power window kit
- JDM door panels
- JDM power window switches w/ the wire harness
- Relay w/ 5 pins (not sure what brand, it was free from this audio store)
- Automotive wire from Radio Shack
- Soldering equipment
- Solder iron
- Solder
- Quick disconnect connectors
- Spade terminals connectors
- Heat-shrink tubing

The drivers side was the side I installed first because the power window switch had only 5 wires. Those wires are:

- Blue w/ yellow
- Blue w/ green
- Blue w/ red
- Blue w/ white
- Blue w/ black

Power window wiring (Drivers' side)

Blue w/ yellow = grounded
Blue w/ green = grounded
Blue w/ red was attached to the red wire coming out of the SPAL motor
Blue w/ white was attached to the black wire coming out of the SPAL motor
Blue w/ black was attached to pin #87 in the relay

Relay wiring

Now for the relay wiring portion:

#85 = grounded
#30 runs straight to the battery
#87 gets attached to the blue w/ black wire (drivers' side) and the white w/ yellow wire (pass. side). So you have to split the wire coming out of the relay to go into those two wires.
#86 goes into the #3 fuse slot in the fues box. The reason why this was done is so that the windows can only be opened when there's a key in the ignition.

Power window wiring (Passengers' side)

Red w/ yellow was attached to the black wire coming out of the SPAL motor
Red w/ blue was attached to the red wire coming out of the SPAL motor
White w/ yellow gets attached to #87 out of the relay
Black = ground

The JDM master power window switch is on my passenger side and it has the ability to control the other window but I chose not to do that. I just want the windows to go down.

Props go out to Louie B. from the CRX Owners Club for all the help.

Sticky this if you'd like. Thanks
