69 Camaro light switch with rs lights?

Hey guys I finally got the rs lights on my good old 69 but theres one issue, I got the kit from Matt Klemp that was mentioned in a previous thread of mines. It worked out cool and was very affordable. However the the doors dont open every time you hit the light switch as its supposed too. The guy that installed it insists its my light switch going bad and that its wired just right. The lights come on every time but the doors dont, does this sound like the switch or a bad wiring job by him? Thanks again guys for all the help, you can check ut pictures of the finished product and a vid of them opening and closing on my photobucket in my signature.

Check to see if voltage is getting to motors...
I would initially lean more towards a drag on the door with grill components.
They need to freely move and not bind on anything..... that's where I would look if voltage is not the issue.
They will overcome some resistance, but not every time.

X2!!

I have a modified MatKlemp system on mine - if the doors don't operate smoothly w/o the system installed, the module will sense the resistance and shut itself off. Best to talk to Mat vs asking the question here where only a very few are familiar with it.

One thing I found - I initially wired it with a relay in the power wire from the headlight switch - not where it should go. The relay needs to be in the batt voltage wire to the module.

So if you hook it up as instructed there can be issues depending how you do it? What issues were you having before you made modifications Al?
