Hello I will help you with your question,

There are 4 wiring diagrams that show the wire colors to the D7 connector, can you pull the colors off the diagrams or do you need me to compile it for you?

How many wires do you count for the connector and are you testing or did the connector come apart?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Please compile list od d7 contacts 1-16
Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

I need to know if you are placing the wires in the connector or testing and need to know the function of the wires. Please refer to my questions above

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
window didnt work, i took out connector and it failed apart.
need to know color of wires on each of 16 pins so i can put d7 connector back
there are nine wires total, going to 16 pin d7 connector
Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you I will need an hour to put the information together for you. Subaru does not publish a connector view for this and I will have to hand compile it from the diagrams.

Hope this is OK?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok how long it will take, shall i wait in front of my pc?
Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

It will be an hour so look for my reply to this thread then.

But all the others are the same?

Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

Sorry, you can put the blue/yellow in the red/black position, it is a different option.

Let me know how I can help

Thanks

Hello George
This color code didn't work
My 81820sc060 cord door driver has one wire different color as I have explained. With what you suggested only one window works.
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

Are you certain you are placing the wires in the correct slots of the connector? The connector view is of the connection not the wire side.

Did the windows work before the connector came apart?

Which is the window that works? Drivers?

Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

81820sc060 is not the number for your window switch. Is that a new part you bought? Window switch number is *****

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I did not purchase any parts. That label tab is on original wire harnes in car.
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

OK, I understand, that label is not for the switch. Do you have a multimeter? I can send you the testing procedure.

Do you understand what I mean when I say the connector view is not the wire side?

The windows did not work before the connector came apart?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I had drivers window broken. In proces of changing window had to disconnect all from door panel. Taking out connector d7 which regulates power windows, it came apart due to water and dirt. Had trouble disconnecting from door switch module. Harnes is labeled by tag with number I have sent you. Need to know color code for harnes with that label for D7 connector. It is forester 2010 base model power windows electric locks.
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

The position I posted above is correct substitute your blue/yellow wire for the red/black I listed in #3.

Are you sure of the wire positions?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Wires are in right position
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

Good, then it sould work the same as before it came apart.

Do you want to test the switch? Do you have a multimeter?

I am sure the positions I posted match the wire diagrams so you either have wires that are not correct, a switch that is failed or a wiring issue.

Let me know how I can help

Thank you

I need original Subaru schematics. All other I have found (all data etc) do not have color of wires matching my original wiring
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

I can post the 4 wiring diagrams I took the info I posted above if you wish, what I poisted does match your wire colors.

Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

You still with me?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Hello George,
Thank you for trying to help me but your answer was not correct. I have searched and found schematics for 2010 Subaru Forester that had all wires coded with colors as they come on D7 switch. Pins are slightly different than the one you have provided.
I have wired D7 connector and it is working 100%.
As you did not give me right advise regarding D7 pinout I will contact pay pall and refund my payment.
Thanks,
Alex
