Default Guide: 2006 Power windows and Sunroof always on.

Hello, this is my first post on the PT Cruiser forums.

I had my PT for a week now but already I am starting to modify it.
I am not your traditional car modder, my background is in electronics.
I have modded my Protege with a few cool things before buying my PT Cruiser.

Now onto the guide:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This modification shows you how to make the Power Windows and Sunroof powered without the key in the ignition.

This modification is for a 2006 PT Cruiser. I do not anticipate that the modification will be the same for an older PT Cruiser as it may be wired differently.

I do not expect that this modification will drain your battery, as it didn't drain the battery on my protege.
It has not drained my battery while sitting at work for 8 hours.

This modification is a DO AT YOUR OWN RISK project. I am NOT responsible for any damage that may occur to you, or your car.

I did this mod by careful study of the service manual, and checking the wires function before I cut anything.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



There are two power wires running to the sunroof.
A 25 amp always on circuit , and a 15 amp circuit that powers the sunroof (and the dash power outlet)
The goal is to re-route the switched circuit so that it can work off the always on circuit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



For the power windows there is a single switched power wire.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Connector C104 is the connector that is easiest to get to for this modification.
All three wires we need run though this connector.
Pin 7 (Pink with Yellow) is the Power Window circuit.
Pin 11(Red with Yellow) is the Always on circuit.
Pin 30 (Pink with Orange) is the Sunroof circuit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Connector 104 is located under the drivers side dash.
This is a large black connector with a white holding tab.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



You will find this connector near the OBD Connector.
You have to press-in a tab to allow the white holding tab to release.
I recommend you disconnect your car battery before removing this connector.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Using the wiring diagrams, CAREFULLY locate and separate the required wires.
Disconnect the car battery before attempting to cut any wires.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



To power the sunroof, cut the Pink with Orange wire a few inches away from the connector.
Tape off the wire that runs into the engine compartment.
Connect a in-line fuse holder to the end that runs into the connector.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Install a tap onto the Red with Yellow wire.
This will provide battery power directly to the sunroof circuit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Follow the same procedure for the Pink with Yellow wire to energize the Power Window circuit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Install a 15amp fuse on the sunroof circuit, and a 20 amp fuse on the power windows circuit.
Re-connect C104 and the car battery.
Test that your windows work when the is no key in the ignition.

A side-effect of this modification is that the power outlet in the dash will be always-on.

Thanks zapwizard!!
I've had this 06 Rt 66 PT Cruiser, about a 6 weeks now...

One of the things I miss from my 2001 PT Cruiser has been, this mod...
A couple hours after reading your post, the windows on my Flamin" Yellow Cruiser, will now go up, and down without, the key in the ignition!!
Thank You, for the complete, set of pictures, to go with, your instructions!!
