Question What's missing??

Alright so im trying to add power locks and windows now sense summer has just started. So tonight i did a mach test my power locks worked great but the windows aren't doing anything. So far i have
-windows actuator x2
-svt door wiring harness x2
-lock actuator x2
-zts gem

i have a 2001 zx3 manual everything. I thought i had all the wires sense i had a pigtail behind my glove compartment and with the new GEM it plugged in.
So what am i missing thats not letting my windows work. I feel so close but yet so far.

Hey man, I hate to be the barer of bad news to you, but you are not that close. Here is the thread we broke everything down on how to do the swap...


For your 01, the factory interior harness will not have the wiring to run your power windows... You will need to swap an interior harness from a ZX3 that has power windows and locks into your car... You also need a GEM from a ZX3... A ZTS (4 door) GEM will not control your car's function properly... You need to get a GEM, interior harness, and airbag control module all from THE SAME ZX3 that had factory windows and locks, then swap these into your ZX3...

So you are going to need to go on a parts hunt again, then do a fair amount of work... Trust me its worth it, I did the swap in my 03 ZX3 a few summers ago.
Current: 2013 Focus ST II.
