Yes it was. I finally figured it out. The manual is great. Ha. What I am trying to do is put in a switch that i can flip inside the car that will enable my windows from working or disable them. Like I am pulling the fuse or not pulling the fuse. How would I do this?

How are you going to deal with the window indexing? Or do you just have to remember to enable the windows before you exit the car?

Yea. I would never hit the switch unless I am being pulled over. I am having tint problems and want to roll them down and hit the switch so the cop cant test them.

Basically you would need to run a piece of wire and a switch in between one of the fuses contacts.

I just gotta say it, this is the weakest reason for a mod i have ever heard. Either tint the windows below what the law allows and take your lumps when they come, or tint them to the legal limit and be done with it. You really think a cop who is going to make your roll your windows up to test is going to then just give up when you say "they dont work" ....

Cops just love it when you screw with them. Let us know how this goes over.

And if you do meet the one dimwitted Enos P. Coletrain that falls for this, what are you going to say the next time he sees your car with the windows up?

What you really need is a speedo switch. No speeding tickets ever!

ok. Thanks dad. You think the cop is going to open my hood and say why don't you pull j fuse 26. Obviously if I even did this I know it is a risky idea.

This is just dumb. So the cop see's you with tint, then notices you just rolled the windows down and is going to believe you when you tell him both your windows don't work on your brand new car.

I would just give you a handful of other tickets to make up for it.

i once got pulled over for speeding and told the officer that my speedo was broken (it really was). he still gave me the speeding ticket and cited me for equipment failure or some other such non-sense. your idea is creative but i think it'll just get you in more trouble than your trying to avoid.

If he pulls you over and your windows suddenly stop working he's gonna get suspicious...probably charge you with obstruction of justice or something similar.

I really do want to do this.

I know you all are saying it can get worse... but I guess it depends how/when you use it.

I was at a light once, talking to my brother, and a bike cop pulled up to my left, I had the windows up, he looked over at me, and then when the light went green and I went, he got behind me and pulled me over. He gave me a ticket for the tint, but nothing else, because I wasnt breaking any other laws.

So if he pulls up, and then you roll down your windows, and take the keys out of your car, then he tells you to roll them up... so you stick your keys in, crank it, and then try to roll down the windows, "Hmm... weird.. maybe a fuse blew? neither side work.." whats he gonna do? Not like he can tell you to get out so he can inspect your fuse box, he cant give you a ticket for the car not operating correctly, he cant ticket you for driving an unsafe vehicle (He prob could if they were stuck up, but not down), he cant check the tint on the front window.... I think you would be in the clear.

My buddy is a cop, ill ask him what he would do if that happened to him while he was on a stop.
