Needing to know if the manual doors have the power wiring harness in them so I can swap over the Gt premium power everything door with power locks, windows, and those oh so sexy 3 speaker door panels. I need this 8 speaker setup!

I'm actually working on doing the same thing smile.gif I am 99% sure they don't, I'm actually going to have to build the harness myself for between doors/power interconnect. What I'd advise is you get the whole harness from inside the car out, if you're gonna do this. If I get my 'rigged' harness done anytime soon, I'll try to upload the info on it.

Check part numbers for door harnesses. Usually, if there are multiple ones, you'll see different names for the different part numbers indicating what kind of features the harness has.

From what I've seen in the past, it will NOT be a universal harness and you'll either need one from the power everything donor or make one yourself.

The upside is, you may need just the door harness as the harness on the inside of the car IS likely to have the pins for all the power options. Something you'll need to check with the wiring diagram and maybe a multimeter.

For example, on my 99 Camry that had no heated mirrors, my door harness did not have the wires for it. But, the main harness does. All I have to do (working on it) is add 2 wires to the door harness and plug it in - the wiring for defrost is already there and hooked up to the rear window defrost button.

[size="6"][/size]thank you both for the response im in Colorado so its been to cold to even attempt the swap or even pull anything apart to check it out, lol, but I did already buy the 95 celica gt premium parts car, Emma swap the power to my St and make it a show car with a 4agze and the gt premium car will get the lighter doors and a built 3s-gte and im going to use it as a track car, the St will be my daily.

Search back through my posts; I did this swap on my old ST several years ago. It's a PITA but can be done. You'll need new door cards, window assemblies & the door harness to do this. It won't plug & play, you'll have to wire it in since the base ST models don't have the pigtail on the wiring harness to plug into from the door harness. I did a write up on this in roughly 2009.
