The Avanti was originally designed so the power windows would only operate with the ignition switch in the ON position. Studebaker issued a Service Letter (J-1963-10) to use a jumper wire on the relay to bypass the switch so points would not be burnt if left on to long. They also said to remove it when serving was complete. Has anyone converted their window operation to Accessory and/or Ignition ON? The schematics I have viewed don't address the wireing to the ignition switch. If the relay wire is connected directly (route through fuse panel?) to the ON side of the ignition switch (I don't know if it is) is it as simple as moving it the Accessory terminal. Comments welcome.
