Ride: Falcon EF Gli

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Hi guys, I have a Falcon EF Gli. So i'll tell you where im upto at the moment.
I have Put all the power window regs and all, in all four by the way.
I went to the wreckers and got myself the wiring loom for the doors and all.
I have plugged everything to its place, and also have done the fuse bit where everyone seems to struggle.
I have a center console switch only so... NO REAR WINDOW SWITCHES.
Im pretty sure the switch and the motors work fine. (I have tested the motors before i put them in)
I put the battery in and press the Driver and Passenger Front Switch and woohhoo :D
The windows goes up and down.
BUT..... When i do the same for Back Window Switches they dont move :x
I could also hear NO motor sound when you press the switch buttons.
AND i know check the child lock button.... but no luck i tried it with ON and OFF.
I Dont want to have switches at the back cause:
1) It will cost me money
2) Might have to get the trims which will $$$
3) Children at the back only like to press buttons :(
I think i might have a clue is that i either:
make a loop somewhere to get power to the back
Or get a three-way switch from somewhere and plug it accordingly.
But im pretty sure ill have to make a loop somewhere but have no clue on to which wires.
If anyone has done this or had the same problem how have you got this solved. My prefered is not having any switches at the back only make a loop somewhere..

SO.. ANYONE HELP ME OUT PLEASE.
People who ive PMed helped me out with other problems i've had are:
nicco
TROYMAN
Thank you guys again.
Ps. I will Post Pictures and give very helpful tips later.

Simple - you need either the back door switches, or you can jumper the switch connector in the door (as you have the harness) and it will work.

On the Right Rear Window switch connector, Jumper the Red/Green Wire to Yellow/Black, and the Yellow/Violet Wire to Yellow/Green

On the Left Rear Window Switch Connector, Jumper the Red/Blue Wire to Yellow/Black, and the Yellow/Blue Wire to Yellow/Green

That should get your windows working.

Cheers

Should be similar, but I dont know - I only have EF/L info here.

But if the switch has 5 wires, and there is a yellow/black and a yellow/green then you might get lucky. They are the ones to the door motor itself.

If theres a red/something, it should go to yellow/black, and a yellow/something should go to yellow/green.

Theres one other wire there as well - not used if you dont have a switch
just be carefull.

Cheers
