Different 67 RS Hideaway Problem
I have spent the afternoon reading through nine pages of hideaway issues and haven't come across what I am experiencing. I think I have have it figured out but before I go buy parts, any insight would be appreciated.
The system hasn't worked since I bought the car. Last week, I pulled the headlight buckets and replaced the motors. I put everything back in, connected the wiring per the schematic and waited for the magic to happen. The passenger side opened and closes just like it should. The driver side didn't do either.
Looking closer, I could feel the motor pushing the DS door closed, until I shut the ignition off and then it would stop. Opening the door by hand and turning the ignition on would result in the door closing. I checked all the grounds that I could see and took some of them apart and sanded. I sprayed the limit switch plungers with cleaner and then WD-40. Nothing changed.
With the ignition and lights on and the motor pushing closed, I pulled the top wire on the core support limit switch and the motor stopped. I reconnected it and the motor pushed the door closed. I did the same with the switch on the light bucket and it also shut the motor off. Testing it a few times, the motor finally stopped trying to push the door closed. Thinking I had progress, I shut everything off and pulled the light switch and they both opened. I turned the ignition on and shut the lights off and only the passenger side closed. The driver's side was being pushed open.
I believe that the relays and circuit breaker are good and that one or both of the DS limit switches are bad. Am I on track?
