Default 99 CRV: Can I make all 4 windows auto-down?


99 Honda CRV

It seems a great deal of the workings of the auto-down of the driver's
window is embodied in the switch. At least it feels like there is a
mechanical click within it...perhaps actuated by the amp-draw of the window
motor, which theoretically goes up when meeting resistance, (right?)

If that's the case, wouldn't it be possible to simply put auto-down switches
into the remaining 3 slots?

Thanks

You are correct, it's a foolishly simple relay that trips a little latch
that's holding the switch in the ON position. It's easy to break if you
try hard enough (ask me).

It takes up a lot of room in the assembly, so there's no room for any
other goodies.

You could build a battery of relays connected to a timer / load sensor
array. I dunno.

I want a simple timer that will keep my windows powered for 60 seconds
after I take my key out, since I forget to snug them up.

Some of the new models do this, under certain conditions.

For instance, my Si will allow me to close the windows or the moonroof, so
long as I haven't opened a door yet. Problem is, I never notice that the
window is down until after I open the damned door... ;-)

One of the things that I so very much like about the Audi. You can raise
and lower all windows from the key. And you can even close the sunroof.
And all switches are auto down. And the driver and passenger are auto-up.
Very well thought out.

If I add 3 other switches, (hopefully there's room for the "little latch"
that trips), and extend the wires elsewhere for the relays....

What do you think of that?

Would it be a particular security hazzard if you just connected the switches
to the main battery. Perhaps *if* the windows are the only things on [their
own] circuit, you could easily do this at the fuse box.
