If you're patient and somewhat wealthy, they do turn up on e-bay every so often, but, I must admit that I have not sought one in quite awhile.

There are several fuses that are not in place at all, the wiring that should be bolted to the power window fuses you mention, are not attached. There are several aftermarket fuses installed and tucked in under the "front side" of the fuse box.

My power windows worked perfectly until I performed a climate/ a/c fan fuse upgrade. After that work ws completed, my fan worked (for more than a couple minutes), but then the windows no longer operated.

I have small windows of time to work on the car and would like to maximize my time. I have searched for a wiring diagram for this car and I come up with nothing.

I would LOVE to have a large diagram that I can print out and reference while working on the car.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Update:
here is my fuse box wiring.

doooood! go to a PNP and get a replacement fusebox! wow that's a mess indeed! I would not bother trying to link all those burned wires together. PNP yard you can loosen the screws and cut off all the wires for splicing and get your panel looking tons safer.
that thing looks like a fire waiting to happen!

You have to be patient and fast. Here is a deal:

The '82 book should work quite well for an '83 model.

82 has front seat control that is different from 83/84. Don't know of any other differences.

I am looking for wiring info for the 1986 300 SDL. How close would an '82 manual be?

(That one was sold).

It would not be very close. When I suggested it, I failed to notice that the thread had drifted away from the vehicle which inspired the thread title.

I'm looking for the color codes for a power window switch for the passenger rear window for a 1986 300 SDL. They popped out of the back of the switch and now the window is stuck down.
