A hack owned my car :(

I picked up a 89 5.0 lx a while ago and recently decided to upgrade the bargain basement cd player. A butcher must have owned my car because every wire in the dash had been cut, spliced and additional wires added for no apparent reason. So I took out my meter and started checking wires and found out my windows work with the key off along with my mirrors. Anyone have any ideas what I should do I really don't want to replace the harness if I can help it.

do your windows/mirrors only work with your car off?

Well apparently someone spliced the window and whatever else and hooked it to a constant hot. Need to go trace the mini harness coming out of the door into the fenderwell leading to the fuse box and reroute those wires back to the original fuse location. You will not have to buy a new harness, just splice correctly and wiring it back to the fuse box and to the correct fuse. Either that or your ignition switch if broken and stays hot at all times.

Thanks for the ignition idea I'll pull one out of a parts car and see if that works.

Welcome to the wonderful wonderful world of buying a used modded foxbody. Dude probably didn't want to have to have the key in to work the windows and went nuts with some butt splices. I'd see about getting a new harness and replacing the whole thing if you plan to keep the car.
