auto check light fix

I thought the solution to this had come up on the list before.  I think it
involved opening some relay-type boxes and changing a "control" resistance.
I believe the auto-check just compares current across the bulb to current
across this wire (in the relay).  If you changed this resistor to wire,
everything is fine.

Mine started doing that recently too. I just bypassed the switch
completely, since I really don't need to lock out the rear windows and
cigarette lighter. Bullet connectors fit in that socket very well. Glad
you got the windows working again.
