1991 MR2 Non-Turbo - Passenger side power window issue

My passenger side window is halfway down and won't close! this has happened several times where the power is out for some reason, but the window was usually up and just wouldn't go down. 
it seems to only happen when people ride in my car and slam the door; last year i spent the majority of my time in my car alone i never had this problem.
i can't even open it from the driver's side. i tried cleaning all the components, but it still hasn't helped. i haven't checked the fuse yet because it got dark out, but the driver's side window works so i doubt that's it. and yes, i toggled the passenger window on/off button too.

    when I'm trying to get the window to go up with the motor bolted to the door frame, the window does not go up, when the motor is not bolted to the door frame the window will go up and down. i have changed the fuse several times. where is the problem most likely to be solved

Hi... I read your problem and i think i know what is causing the passenger window not to work... it is not the window regulator for sure, you said sometimes it works, that is until somebody slams the door, but other than that it actually works so that proves it works, and because of that i really think it is your wire harness.

So try it work test it and if it works please let me know, i own a 91 mr2 and my window ( passenger ) doesn`t work but I`m rebuilding the whole car so I'm not worrying about it for now but your results will help me a lot.

How do I add transmission oil (std. tranny) on MR2 1991

Turbo (E153) and Non-Turbo (S54) transmissions have the fill bolt on tranny facing the firewall to the cabin. Youll have to jack the rear of the car up.

Drain bolt is near the the driver side axle input.

It is advised to remove filler bolt before drain bolt in case drain gets stripped etc.

Use a longer hose with funnel from the top to fill

I have a 2003 cavalier. I have power windows. The passenger side window although slowly does go down. When closing the window it will go up stop then after giving it several minutes goes up a little...

Maybe your motor just need the connections taken off and sprayed down with wd/40 to help the connection. Is this happening on the driver side? if so try useing the passenger side button and see if it opperates same way, it;s a different window motor> good luck to you.

Passenger side power window halfway down

You will need to remove your interior trim panel and check your window regulator for damage and for power going to your window motor. If your regulator is ok and you have power going to the motor then you have a bad window motor. If there is no power at the motor then you will need to check the circuit for the problem ie. blown fuses, broken wiring, bad switch. It is very commen for the motors to go bad. Good luck.

MR2 no backup lights and occasional loss of power

The answer to the the back up lights it the trans reverse switch on top of the transmission on the drivers side.The wires seem to corrode and fall out. Its really hard to remove so I used epoxy to set the wire back in place. as for the The other issue. Does this happen more often in the rain? Use some dielectric grease on the MAF sensor connected to the air cleaner. I hope that helps. Hit me up for a better explanation.
