Rear window safety switch?

I posted (my first post) and haven't gotten any answers? Could someone tell me how to bypass that safety switch? I think I did it right by cutting the plug off and hooking it to the wires going to the motor, but I'm not sure???

If more info. is needed take a look at "New Bronco, New Problems!"

I did bypass mine, but it's been a few months. If memory serves me correct when the tail gate is closed the plunger is depressed, thus closing the circuit. I would go ahead and cut the wires, and temp connect them. Then check to make sure the tailgate key switch and the dash switch both function. Good luck

Re: Rear window safety switch?

If you have a defroster for the back window you could jump the window motor from those wires to get it down. (or from the cig. lighter with long wires to reach the back).
Having someone gently pushing on the window while jumping might help to...

Once you get the window down, open the tailgate, flip the latches closed (2 on each side of the tailgate) to 'trick' it into thinking the tailgate is in the closed can then operate the window with the key in the tailgate.(in order to get better access to the motor, gears, etc..)

After you get it working you might want to grease up all the moving parts on the inside while your in there....
