    This review is from: XO Vision PW203 2 Door Power Window Kit (Electronics)
    I installed this kit on a 1998 Ford cargo van in a little under 3 hours. I have had the dash and door panels off before, so I knew what I was getting into. I looked at the “instructions” for a few minutes and decided they were mostly useless, except they show you that you are not supposed to twist or kink the cables from the motor to the window crank shaft. There wasn’t any mention of the wiring in the instructions at all. I learned more from examining the actual parts than I did from the instructions. If you are mechanically inclined and are comfortable with automotive wiring, this should not be too much of a chore. Honestly, I found trying to get the caps that cover the hole where the window crank used to be to fit correctly was the worst part of the job. Installing the kit itself takes only basic tools. Removal of door panels and dash panels, well that depends on the vehicle. The motors are rather large. The control buttons and mounting pods are also on the large side. If you look at the picture of all the parts on the website, the 5 black discs on the molding tree are about 1 3/4″ in diameter and everything else is to scale. I would investigate inside your door to see if there is room before ordering. They do seem to work well. About 3 seconds up or down on the driver’s side and about 4 seconds for the passenger’s side (I believe there is some voltage drop because of the longer wires to the passenger side. I haven’t checked, just speculation. Replacing them with a heavier gauge wire would fix it, but it’s not enough of an issue to mess with). Because it is a high amp circuit I used the cigarette lighter circuit as a power source. I am going to have to go back and install a relay that is hooked to the ignition. Since the instructions said nothing of the wiring, I didn’t realize the buttons were lit until it got dark. Since I wired into a constant 12v source, the lights are always on. As another review stated, the templates for the switch pods are backwards, so pay attention when using them. For the price, much better than manual windows.

    12/16/2012 Update:

    Still working fine. One of the caps that cover the original window crank holes fell of shortly after installation. I installed a second kit on a different van and I glued the caps on this time, the glued caps have stayed on for over a year. Also, I never got around to installing a relay, so the kit has constant power (which is nice because you don’t have to turn the key on to roll down a window). I have let my van set for over a week and no dead battery. I have a 1000 cranking amp battery, if you have a smaller battery and additional drains, ie phone chargers, gps, etc., it could drain your battery.

    For the price I paid, I’m pretty happy with the kit. A few details that are not clear up front:

    * The motors are solid, but slow. Don’t expect the speed of OEM/factory power window motors. I’m getting about 9-10 seconds per window for rolling either down or up.
    * Comes with a 30 amp fuse (though I am running a 15 amp, and you can probably lower it without blowing).
    * The switches are lighted, so you will need to wire this up with an 12v ignition relay (not included).
    * Both of the templates for the switches are upside down, so you will need to flip them and place them backwards, or on the inside of the door panel to trace.
    * The motors are much larger than they seem in the pictures.
    * The buttons are enormous, and almost comical in size.
    * The instructions appear to have been translated back and forth a few times before printing. It’s impossible to read them.

    I will report back on how they are holding up in a few months.
