Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner
The rear window on my 98 4Runner no longer opens/closes. I have
tried the center console switch, the key in the rear door lock, and
verified the "child lock" is not pushed activated on the windows.
Neither the key nor the switch will open the windo. I
have replaced fuses and also checked the motor. The motor on the
window works when jump started. What other part could be
broken? Is there a relay switch to the motor?
Open the rear hatch. Pull off the inner trim panel. Look to see if there is a little box with a bunch of wires connected to it. It may be at the lower edge, driver side. Turn the key on. Test for 12 volts at the solid BLUE wire (there is only 1 solid blue wire) that is connected to the box. Is there power? If not, check the 30 amp POWER fuse. If there IS power, this box may be bad. This is the power window relay for the rear hatch. The wiper/washer and the rear window motor power all come out of this box.
Check for power & get back to me before you buy a relay box, there are a few other tests I could share with you before we pronounce the relay box bad...
