things you need at the junkyard
-motors and regulator
-wire harness
-door panel

tools and other things you need
-electric tape
-fuse holders
-wire cutter
-relay and harness
-small screw driver

well first of all my car is an 1983 toyota celica gt the wire harness i got from the junkyard was from an 84/85. i thought all the harness were goin to be the same so i got them. turns out that they were compeletly different. but with the help of flyingbrick i was able to make things work.

first of all try not to splice any wires like i did o_0 you can use a small screw driver to pop the terminals out of the harness.
next you should test out the motors if they work or not. by connecting one wire to the + of the battery and - on the battery and check if you see any movement if nothing the motors are probably broken.  

now to take out the manual windows.just take out the handle for the window, armrest, door panel and unplug the door light. take that plastic covering out. then there should be 7 screws there.

once you unscrewed everything you can pull it out.

now for the wiring. the pictures are from the Toyota Celica 1983 Electrical Wiring Diagram and Toyota Celica 1985 Electrical Wiring Diagram i think teran said if we posted where we got the picture its ok to post, if not ill take it down (just let me know, dont wanna get banned) =)

this is the wire harness on an 1982-1983


wire harness on an 1984-1985

this is what flyingbrick told me
15 of M is 7 of N
14 of M is 6 of N
16 of M is 3 of N. Goes to the passenger side its 16 of R is 3 of M
12 of M is 4 of N. Goes to the passenger side its 12 of R is 4 of M
13 of M is 8 of N. Goes to the passenger side its 13 of R is 8 of M
these should be all to make the windows work
for the side view mirror the colors should be the same so u can just match them up. i think they were Brown/Yellow, Brown/Black and Aqua/Red.
same with the door light Red and Red/White

that should make ur wiring complete

Now for the Relay
the relay i used is STANDARD part# RY116 and its connector or harness is made from STANDARD too part# S-654
the relay should have numbers on them 30, 85, 86, 87 and 870. total of 5 prongs. but you are going to use 4 of them. you can ignore 870. the others you need.

well if you get the same relay and connector i got:
30 is a red wire connects to the battery
85 is a light blue wire connects to a fuse like the horn or radio
86 is a green wire connects to a ground ( body or battery )
87 is a yellow wire connects to the yellow and red wire on 7 of N harness

i used fuse holders on 85 and 30

your relay should be wired similar to this. ( sorry if the pictures sucks lol )

that should make your windows work.

but in my case i just bypassed the relay i gave the yellow and red wire power from the battery and it worked. once i checked if everything worked.i started installing it to the car. installing them is easy. just insert the motor and screw in the 7 points. dont forget about the wires. next is the door panel since i didnt have a supra door panel i did the next best thing and cut a hole in my door panel.

do the same on the passenger side put everything back together and  should look like this.  

did i forget anything?  :blink:

The following pin out information is for the 84 and 85 celica. In the original write up there is information explaining the corresponding numbers to the 82 and 83 wiring harness.
For ease of installation it is highly recommended that you have spare connector M's, and R's with about 6" of wire on the body side. You're gonna need this so that you can use factory terminals within the connectors. You should have gotten power door harnesses at the same time as the regulators, so we won't go any further with that.

The 2 connectors labeled M above are on the drivers side of the car. Both are inside the drivers kick panel. One is on the door harness, and the other is on the body side of the harness. Looking at the picture you can see that the numbers mirror each other.
On connector M, terminal 15 is providing power from the relay you should have wired up. This is the only wire you have to run from under the hood to inside the passenger compartment. When I ran mire, I ran it through the body harness hole in the drivers side fender, and then through the large grommet the wiring harness is in, to the drivers side kick panel of the car. Once I had the wire where I wanted it, I used a small screw driver to pop out terminal 15 from the sacrificial connector, soldered, heat shrinked, and inserted it in to the connector M that was already in my car. Next, you need to add in terminal 14, which is going to get wired to a good ground. That, along with having the power window door harness installed in the car is enough to give you a drivers side power window. Now you insert a terminal in to slot 16 of connector M and run it under the dash over to the passenger side Kick panel. It will end up going in to slot 16 of connector R. You run a wire from terminal 12 of connector M over to terminal 12 of Connector R, and then do the same thing with Connector 13 of M, to terminal 13 of R.
And... That's it. You're all done. Just in case anyone is getting any ideas about saving time and running less wires, no, you can not just run the terminal 16 wire across the car and forget about the others. You will not wind up with both power windows working only off their respective switches. You need to run the number 12 and 13 wire in order to provide a ground for the passenger side motor.
