retired wrote:On my 83 sedan it is located behind the side panel just in front of the passenger door. Both the door lock and window breakers were there on mine.

I got out the 1981 Diesel Supplement & 1982 FSM, and it's true:
- 1981 uses a fusible link for the PDL and a rectangular CB for the PW;
- 1982 has identical round CBs for both PDL & PW.
I think the PW CB also protects the power sunroof.
It looks as if the actual harness connector is the same in both years.
