    Well, I did some google-ing and I managed to find a wiring diagram PDF, but it appears to be an older model with right-hand drive. Section 2.20 is the power window wiring and section 3.3 is the door wiring. This model had auto down and up, which could be promising. I looks like the front right (driver's side on right-hand drive car) power window motor has the extra wiring built right in. However, I couldn't find the feedback to the power window main switch. The question then becomes, does the 3-wire safety circuit come from the motor or the power window control module on the USDM WRX? Also, does the window motor have the 8-pin connector with the 6 wires that we would need? Time to do some more digging...

    Almost forget the link to the PDF: Wiring PDF

    Guys, the DEI 530t will do one touch up or down. It's a simple plug/splice in that is voltage sensitive, meaning that it senses obstruction of the window such as the frame or someone's bodyparts, which is how it determines when to stop driving the window motor. With the time and $$$ invested in hacking the Nissan switch, you could've bought the unit, installed it, and had a lifetime warranty on it.

    Just my two cents, but why re-invent the wheel when someone else already did the legwork for you????

    Will ship 530t's at $70 + you pay shipping, a piece with necessary wiring diagram.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    it is exactly as said, a relay. i put in only one relay for the front 2 windows. one touch up/down. plus its integrated into my prestige alarm. arming the car rolls the windows up. plus you can vent them or roll all the way down the the alarm key also.

    the worst part i thought was the install. the wires going through the door via the circular tube...which is small sucks.

    This thread has been dead for about 6 months, but I've recently made some discoveries.

    I found a switch module from a 2001 Pathfinder on eBay and bought it. It's got auto up and auto down on both front windows. It's an exact fit for the one in the WRX, even the connector plugged right in without any alterations. The only problem is, nothing worked. None of the windows moved, the power locks didn't do anything, the switch backlighting didn't even come on. I did a little probing with a multimeter and I was able to determine that the pinout configuration is different, but I can't tell exactly what is what.

    Here's what I need... I've been looking around on the internet for a wiring diagram for the 2001 Pathfinder, but I haven't had any luck. All I need is the power window and power lock diagrams. Nissan has a tech info site at www.nissan-techinfo.com (similar to Subaru's, I would guess), but I'm not about to pay $20 for two diagrams. If anyone has access to this site or has these diagrams available, I would greatly appreciate a copy of them. In the meantime, I'll have to keep looking.

    getting a relay/modulator is so much easier.

    Good stuff. I was wondering why it didnt auto-up. i mean when i get to a toll booth its not hard to hold down the window to go down, but after i pay i gotta shift and steer, i dont have as much time to hold the button to put the window back up. my RSX had auto-up/down for the driver.

    Looking back on the whole ordeal thus far, yeah, it may have been easier to use the module from DEI. But the point of this whole fiasco was to be able to buy a switch module, unplug the old one, plug in the new one, and you're done. I've got no problem splicing wires, I just like to avoid splicing wires if I can. And like I said before in one of the other two threads that cropped up after this one started, I like having the double detent on the switch.

    here i am even newer and glad people have the same ideas as me. i see that to do 4 windows you spend 200 bucks (which i dont think i could justify), but how about just one...did anyone figure this out, or are we still on the DEI module?

    I bought a switch module that had auto up and auto down on both front windows. The rear windows were just regular up and down. The switch I got off of eBay was from a 2001 Pathfinder I believe. The similarities pretty much stopped there.

    The plug is an exact fit, but the pinouts are different from the WRX. Even if I swapped the wires around, I still don't think it would work because I believe the Nissans use an encoder built into the window motor to send a motion status back to the switch. I'm not going to even try pulling my door apart to try swapping the regulator because I don't know if they can be interchanged as easily as the switch.

    If anyone out there does want to try this, I still have the Nissan switch and would be willing to sell it to them and I would cheerfully send with it all the info I've collected.
