woodylmiller Posted June 29, 2021 Share Posted June 29, 2021 Front shade will not program with the ignition on. Ignition off and the shade works. During programing attempt we are not getting the beeps to begin the programing process. Shade visor works fine. We noticed there is a brown wire coming from the shade motor that appears to go nowhere. Talking with the MCD tech I was told that the brown wire is powered with the ignition on and that is the safety wire that prevents the shade from coming down while the ignition is on. Pulled the cover off the corner pillar post since that is where the end of the brown wire was. I was hoping to fine the other end of the brown wire, but it's not there. The brown wire looks as though it was cleanly cut. ??? There is a yellow wire that goes nowhere from the visor part and it has a butt splice that was not crimped on the empty side of the barrel, if that makes sense. There are five wires in a loom coming from the dash up that pillar, all appear to be cleanly cut. There is a brown wire in the group but no power with the ignition on. Is it possible that there are two fuses on that shade motor? One for ignition on, one for ignition off? There are fuses behind the above dash TV, maybe??? One other thing, the two brown wires are different sizes. The motor wire is a 18 ga or so, the one from the dash looks to be a 14 ga. All wires look like they were never stripped or crimped. Very confusing with a brown and yellow wire, one from each motor that go nowhere, and the yellow wire has a crimped on butt splice only on one side, the empty barrel was not even attempted to be crimped by the looks of things. Everything has worked with no issue to date. Thanks, Woody Miller 09 Dynasty Regal IV Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
