Hey guys just wondering how hard it would be and what I would need to convert my manual windows in my 2006 XE to automatic windows? Would doing this conversion the factory way also include converting to automatic locks?

I wonder if it would be worth picking up 2 doors from an KC with power windows and just swapping all the guts to your skin?

that would be the way to do it, check your bone yards!
make sure they have the harness too, if not i guess you could buy new?

BCM is probably going to be different, unless Nissan was nice enough to just make one, that is if you are trying to go completely factory. Or you could just go with a SPAL kit and call it a day.

as long as you have the power option wire harness it should plug right in. ive had no probs.

Second Gen?
never swapped a fontie so thats why i say should. for the wiring of the vehicle all the connectors from the front pillars(bcm) i assume as you say. should all be the same. the difference is just swapping the harnesses around. i dont see why the harness will not work. its all plug and play.

BCM is the module that controls all this stuff, locks, lights, windows, alarms. All I am saying is if Nissan uses a different BCM on the non power anything models than on the ones that came with all this crap from the factory, things get a little harder.

That was for TheOregonFront, I know what your trying to do, i have done it on older cars (BMW's mostly) Bimmers come wired whether they had locks or window or not

yah, thanks guys. When it stops raining here Ill have to try and take a look at it and do some more research. I would almost assume theyd be the same and it was plug and play. Kind of like the SE 4 cylinders just have that kind of stuff installed. My experience with like the fog lights and the oem reciever/ hitch wiring harness and stuff is that its setup just the same as all the others. The XEs just dont come with that stuff installed. Maybe Ill try calling the dealer too and ask them, but Im sure if they were to do it that it would be a rediculous price.

Take it apart, have a peek, if the stuff is there it would be very simple

I dunno, but I'd sure like to know if anyone has swapped in the power seats into their vehicle since the Pro-4x doesn't come with power seats anymore. (well the auto version can but that's not a real choice).

If there's one mod/change I would love to make to my vehicle, it would be to get rid of the 8 way manual (non-adjustable) seats and put in the electric ones.

I wonder if you could just wire a switch to send power to the windows and bypass the BCM. You would have to have some kind of resistance in place to stop the motor or make sure to stop the window once it is all the way up...
