Re: Electric Window delay in EA/B/D - Interested ?
OK, to install will be a 4 wire connection (I assume you don't have a stationwagon tailgate on your LTD :).
The wire that activates the AccRelay is cut and each end connected to wires from the Delay unit (i.e. the relay wire is routed through the Delay Unit). The Delay unit is connected to a permanent 12v and ground.
The device detects power off and supplies power to the relay so the windows keep working. The relay is released after 20 minutes.
The sound system 60min is most likely a function of the head unit. I'll look up the wiring diags tonight to confirm.
Obvously, one could have a button somewhere, which pressed, could turn the radio on for an hour. It would be neater to have it working as in AU/BA but the problem is that the pre-1994 (original equipment) radios had on/off switches whereas the AU/BA(EL?) have a momentary pushbutton. Can't see how an integrated setup could be made to work.
