Default Window Power Delay

Greetings Everyone-

I tried searching every term I could think of but didnt come up with much-

I remember seeing on here somehwere something about a Window Power Delay--like the toyotas and such--basically like a 30sec timeframe of power after your key is off but before you open your doors-you know to roll up/down your windows-is there any sort of mod or piece for our cars?? Thanks for any info!!

What you are referring to is "retained power". Some newer cars have this function which keeps the accessory circuits powered up for a specific time after the ignition is turned to "off" and the key left in.
On those vehicles so equipped it's done with extra programming and hardware in the body control module. While it may be possible to build some add-on circuits to simulate this on a car that was not built with it, you won't end up with the same thing.

it actually wouldn't be too difficult. you could do it with a DEI 528T (pulse timer relay) and also tie it into the driver door trigger.

I've done it a couple of times to retain radio use after the car is off. As for windows, it might be a little trickier. You would have to wire at least another relay to power the window control circuit, but that might not allow all of the motors to work. It would probably be easier to run the relay to temporarily keep power to ignition after the car is shut off.

Do you happen to have an aftermarket alarm system? If so a window automation module would be a much easier alternative. Giving you the ability to raise and lower the windows with remote.

You wouldn't have to do it just for the radio, just power the ACC circuit for 30 seconds after keyoff. EVERYTHING that normally works still would for that time, radio, AC fans, etc...

Default delay power cutoff to windows

It looks like the 2018s will have this. I was just wondering if its just a simple relay swap?? Any service techs out there??
