Re: V8 DS Window Lift-More Info-Need 287 Relay

Thanks Wayne,
In researching the situation I find that in the two + years I've had the car I
never knew that there was a one-touch lift as well as a one-touch lower function
in this window.  I think the testing I did suggests that the wiring in the door
is not the problem since it performed the same incorrect way using the cable for
the right window.  I've removed the control relay.  Anyone got a good used 287
relay?  P/N 443-959-257B.  this is a double relay that is probably used on 100s,
200s, V8s and probably others.
