Hey all,

Great site guys, I have been trying to get power windows installed into my 94 Futura Classic. It has cruse control and ABS. I have purchased and installed trims, regulators, wiring harnesses (in the doors) and switches but can not get them to work. When I put power and earth directly to motors, they work great. I was given a green module with the kit (from the wreckers) but cant find a place for it under the dash, found a blue and red one, but no plugs to fit the green one. Has anyone got any ideas where or what to do next? :shock:

The green module is the body electronic module (BEM) and so the green one needs to replace the BEM that is located adjacent to the stereo which will be the blue one.

The red module is the smartlock and keyless entry module located above the handbrake assembly

Take it the centre console switches have been installed

Red one is definatly smartlock as it wont start with this removed. As for the blue one, its got a different plug socket on it, very similar but different. I just thought there would be some plugs loose under the dash somewhere that I could plug into. And yes, switches have been installed.

That module has nothing what so ever to do with the functionality of power windows...

Where the body loom plug goes into the window switches (centre console) check the wire in the middle... Grey with yellow trace... See if it has 12 volts when the ignition is on accy or on...

If there is power there, and no windows work, i'd say your switches are faulty...
If there is no power there... Check (replace) the "pwr wdo" circuit breaker in the fuse box, or remove and check there is power there...

There is no modules anywhere in the system... Its super simple... power to the centre switch module and then to the regulators...

I did it in mine using BA window switches, only did it on the front door when I did the EL XR door trim conversion...

I have EL XR trims so only front power windows...

The back ones are weird...

I've never had the chance to investigate how they work but I do know both the centre console switch and the door trim switch have to be plugged in and functioning for the window to work...

Like I said I don't now how they are wired up so I can help any more than that sorry...

It should be noted that the Green BEM (Fairmont) is not a plug in swap for the Blue BEM (Futura), and would require a complete Fairmont Dash Loom etc.
