I am reassembling a 1965 Malibu with factory power windows. When I got the car the windows always had power even with the key off. I can not find a wiring diagram for the window section that shows if this is right.
64, and 65 had power to windows when the ing. is off. Gm changed it to power only, when ing. was on. The wiring may not have been changed for a few more years after 65, not sure. For safety sake it would be wise to wire it this way. Only with ing. in on position. Children left in cars, while the parent ran into the store to purchase a few items have been killed (I believe choked) with another child playing with the switches.
