I was taking the driver door panel off today and I was having trouble with the wiring harness clip for the door locks and windows. While I was trying to pop the clip off, the 12+ colored wires came out of the white plastic connector clip that I was trying to disconnect! Nothing is broken, but now I have no idea which of the 12 colored wires goes into which slot in the wire harness connector clip. Does anyone know where I might be able to get a print out of which order those wires go in so that I can put the clip back together?
thanks!

I accidently disconnected the locking clip that holds the wires in the wiring harness that feeds the power door locks and windows in the drivers side front door. Isearched the forums for info but hte best i found was wiring diagram for an 03 forester. This doesn't seem to match what i have. The wires will go back in place however i don't know the locations without seeing a picture. If anyone has some info or suggestions please let me know. By the way the reason i disambled the door was to replace the speakers. The POLK Db 612 component speakers fit in nicely and sound great and the only mod is making a 1/2" spacer for the woofer. The tweeter i located right in front of the door handle and only required drilling out a two inch hole using a hole saw. It looks like it came from the factory.:confused:

Driver side power window switch wiring

:chair: I was removing my front driver door panel and was trying to disconnect the wiring harness from the door handle. However, I opened the plastic white wiring clip and exposed all 12 connectors inside! Now, I don't know which wire goes into which hole...

i did it too, but kevin's diagram, and the color code chart here below makes it pretty easy......except that now my windows don't go down:icon_frown: i think that when i put the clip together, a couple of the wires were not pushed down far enough and they are not making good contact...

I"m trying to help a friend that did the same thing when trying to replace a window. I've followed all the diagrams above but still no joy. None of the windows will work and I've checked the fuses. Can anyone suggest anything that may help. I'm pretty sure I've got the wiring right although I wasn't sure about L. It seems to stand for blue. Any suggestions?

Welcome Bobbob! Maybe go deeper about your question? At least the diagrams that were posted aren't helping you?

I used the diagrams above to work out all the pin outs for plug D7. There are 12 wires and 16 holes in the socket. I came up with 1-L, 2-LR, 3-not used, 4 not used, 5-B, 6-LY, 7-BL, 8-YB, 9-RW, 10-Or, 11-GY, 12-not used, 13-GB, 14-not used, 15-LW, 16-GW. I assume that "L" means BLUE. After connecting it up no buttons on the console will work (all four windows and door lock). I checked the fuses under the dash and under the bonnet and they were good. I'm wondering if the wiring is right. A picture of one woulld be good if anyone has one. It's an 04 model forester

door lock solution

I too had the same problem and here's the answer (based on 2004 Subaru Forester XS):
Top row, left to right. Top row is identified by 2 missing connectors in the middle to allow for connection to harness. 1- Blue, 2- Blue w/red, 3- empty, 4- empty, 5- Black (ground), 6- Blue w/yellow, 7- Black w/blue. Bottom row, left to right. 8- Yellow w/black, 9- Red w/white, 10- Orange, 11- Green w/yellow, 12- empty, 13- Green w/black, 14- empty, 15- Green w/white, 16- Blue w/white.
Happy wiring!

Central door locking pinouts not as wiring diagrams

I've a 2Liter turbo forsester S/tb japanese imported, Im installing an alarm and so require to connect a -ve pulse alarm wire to lock and another -ve pulse wire from the alarm to unlock the doors.
All the wiring diagrams so far for a 1998 forester say red/white to lock and Yel/red to unlock. These coloured wires dont exist between my wire loom and keyless control module (mounted above fuse box).
Anyone know where I can get the wiring diagram for my central door locking?
Thanks.

I just did the same with my 2008 Forester. It's apparent easier to disassemble the connector than to pop it off. Problem is the colors are different: mine doesn't have yellow/black or orange wires. Does anyone have the diagram for the 2008? It’s hard to fit all back in and I hope to do it once right.
Thanks
