Question Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

First off, I have spent the last few days combing through these forums and what a killer resource!! This place is great!

Now on to the questions - I just bought a 2001 S10 (2WD, 2.2L auto, extended cab w/o third door) that has manual locks and windows. I would like to upgrade these to power and was wondering if anyones knows if the door wiring harness has the power window and lock connectors in tact but "taped back". I was hoping I could just buy actuators, regulators, and switches and wire it up myself.

Any ideas?

Thanks for reading my post!!

- Zach

ebay store "s10warehouse" has everything you'd ever need...all stock actuators, power window motors, switches, EVERYTHING...
I bought everything there for around 50 bucks shipped, still haven't installed it yet though.

Let me know how you do it, I don't have any idea about wiring, with no block to hook all the wires up to, I'm going to have to make it up myself!

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

I just bought a pair of power regulators from s10warehouse, too. I'm looking to convert my 95 from manual windows to power with them. Does anyone know if GM made S10s with power windows but manual locks? I'm looking for a switch panel for my manual to power window conversion, but they all seem to have the lock switch, too. S10warehouse only deals in 98+, so no help there, and a general EBay search didn't turn up any switch panels w/ window switches, but no lock switches. Any help / guidance would be appriciated.

I am planning on doing this, but with both power options, and in the process of researching everything, I've found that the power window option also included power locks and power mirrors under the Convenience Group "ZQ6", so no, you cannot find the switch panel without power locks...

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

I did a power window conversion in my 97. I didn't use the factory switches though. It is very easy to do. The hardest part for me was drilling out the rivets and putting new ones in the power window tracts. The window motors have 2 wires. Both of the wires are positive and negative. Depending on which way you connect power and ground determines which way the motor moves. I used a 6 prong switch for the windows. I can give you a diagram of the switch I used if needed.

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

Yes that would be awesome. I plan to modify a center console where the change holder or cd holder would be to house like 4 or 5 rocker switches for different accesories like windows, door locks, fogs, amp cut offs etc.

Have you done the power lock conversion? I think the windows would be easy to figure out as long as you have a diagram, but I'd like to get an alarm soon to match the remote start thats sitting in my closet, and well why have an alarm if you have manual locks

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

i did it!!!!! but its so freaking easy. the hardest part is getting the new motor assembly in the tracks. i used stock everything. when i get home tonight i'll post up the switch diagram and also how i did mine. my motors didn't bolt in to the stock holes i had to drill new ones.... wiring was a bitch until i figured out how to do it. my finger got burned pretty bad for it too.

Did you use a different motor than a stock s10 motor? Mine went in the stock holes.

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

I've converted both my windows & doors from manual to power.

Unfortunately you're dreaming if you think the wiring is there. There is no wiring, no relays, and no fuses. You're on your own up a creek as far as that is concerned.

That said... new door locks are easy... just drill & install actuators a few inches from the lock- a little bent hook clamped to the existing bar is all it needs. You can pickup power from in the dash console, or you can bring it through the firewall (You'll want power thats live at all times, which the ignition has). I brought mine through the firewall since I have a custom box with relays & extra posts for my mods under the hood.

Windows are pretty easy also... unbolt existing crank mechanism, the arms are just in tracks, and they will slide out the end of the rails.

I'll take some pictures tonight- the window harness I'd recommend buying, but you can wire up one side to be independant of the other, or have one control both. I have 2 switches on driver side, and one on passenger. My lazy ass hasnt gotten around to painting them yet, but I will .

I'll take my door panel off this weekend and take some pics, I'll also digup my folder with all my links on where I bought the stuff.

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

P.S. Don't put your power windows on live wire unless you want your truck easily stolen. When you ditch it into a pond, most of the time your electrical is f'ed in a matter of seconds anyway.

I bought my lock kit from these guys:

http://www.a1electric.com/mes.htm

Mine is the 2 door w/ keyless & security. You get a security module that is plug & play with the harness, whats the point of electric locks without a key fob?

Can't remember where I got my window kit from but I'll look it up.

Bigpoppasmurf, What exactly did you get from "s10warehouse" to make the electric door locks work?
Mine are manual.

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

Does that 'guide' also work for a 97? If not, is there a tutorial on it? I just bought a 97 s10, and it came with no door panels. Could I just get a pair of power door panels and use them instead of buying aftermarket switches? And what years will fit a 1997?

Thanks

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

94-97 will fit, but there are different styles, and yes you can just swap them over, or swap out the switch panel, I still have my stock doors, with window crank hole, but I swapped over the switch panel and added pw/pl. I put a tweeter in the hole for the manual windows and everything works fine. THe guide will work for you btw.

OK, silly question maybe... but if I'm hitting the local wrecker to get a power window setup for my 94 s10, should I also be swapping out the fuse panel etc so I have the same setup? Or just run an inline fuse somewhere?

Didnt want to start a new thread.

Anyone do this conversion on a first gen? Are the tracks/scissors different from a manual application?

You don't have to swap the fuse panel, its already wires up to that point, just put a circuit relay in and cut the outbound wire and tap into it there. Thats how I did mine.

Anyone do this conversion on a first gen? Are the tracks/scissors different from a manual application?

The tracks are the same, but the scissors/regulators are different. So if you grab the motor along with the regulator, you will be fine. Make sure you get a first gen though.

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

Do the power door locks work on a momentrary short to power? I was asking because I have an aftermarket key fob set to my home security system that has an extra button on it. This button can be programmed to a 12 volt monetary relay. I just thought it would be cool to have one key fob that arms/disarms my home alarm opens/closes my garage door, locks/unlocks my truck.

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

Ok well I hooked mine up today but I can only have two in the drivers door. If I hook the switch up on the passenger side it blows the fuse and I have them hooked up exactly the same. But if I unplug either switch the fuse is fine

What size fuse? Use the circuit breakers like the factory setup.

The factory fuse is a 30A circuit breaker.

Re: Converting Manual Windows and Locks to Power!?!?

Yep, just swap your door panel over along with your manual window regulator. You don't have to swap out the lock since it will work as a manual one without power. Plus they can be a pain to swap out, so why do extra work.

Make sure you swap out the key cylinder though.
