Default Re: XE Rear Doors - Wiring

My guess would be that if, it was mostly working before and now nothing is working then you have switched/crossed wires while splicing. The crossed wires are possibly causing an in series circuit behavior for the rear door circuit. For example, maybe the door lock solenoid is in series with the window power and the other door lock, so nothing works.


If you didn't re-splice all the wires, now another wire is broken.


Even though you spliced the wires, now one of them is broken else where. I replaced about 10" of wire, but I still had to use the stubs of wire on the connector. I did the rear passenger last year this time and the lock doesn't work again. Window and speaker still work.
