When installing my shift knob I noticed that the window switch for my drivers side (the only window that has one touch) was different than the others. I imagine that if you bought one-touch window switches you'd be good to go... dont quote me on that tho. I will try swapping the switch around to see if that in fact works. i will get back to you later

Complete mod list and pics:

Thats pretty much what I did. Just bought a right switch and its once touch now. But be carefull with those switches couse your wires has a different connectors for fromt and fear windows, so you might have to rewire it a little afterwords.

Dont piss me off. I am running out of places to hide the bodies

I think the switch might detect a difference in the current draw on the motor. I believe it is in the switch though.
