The driver side has a lock out button on the master switch on the driver door.
On mine, I had to remove the master switch, about 2 hours, cleaned the contacts and it worked all windows easily. A lot of work but the replacement switches are very expensive..The other possibility is simply corroded connections as a lot of water gets into the doors......almost the same solution but each door needs to have the door panel taken off.....

Fix windows they wont go down any more,, fuses look ok


There can be several reasons. When you say you "fixed" the windows, it makes me wonder what was wrong with them before you started. The part inside the door is usually a window regulator. It has teeth to be moved by the gear on the electric window motor. The position of the regulator teeth is suppose to match the position of the window. If you imagine setting the window 1/2 open, then that is as far as the window will rise when the electric window motor cranks. The electric motor gear will only travel so many turns for each cycle of the motor switch.


Mixing motors on the wrong side of the car is something else that can go wrong if you change W motors. The W motors are not the same from front to front or rear to rear. They are often compatible diagonally (right front to left rear) (left front to right rear).


Finally, you can have a switch box for the auto up/auto down feature inside the door panels. You need to check for power at the W motor and then backtrack.

Where is the fuse for the rear window of a 1986 4runner


rear window issue not rolling down?, take your rear window wiper blade and push up to the docking position. Then try the window. The wiper is electrically inline with the window relay. If it is not all the way up (sagging) then your window will not roll down. Hope this helps. Also, the relay board that operate rear window defog, and up/down is located drivers side behind the front seat behind the plastic trim. Next to the fuse box there are two circute breakers,in the center of the two breakers is a small hole take a tooth pick and push into the hole to reset the breaker,if I beleive the rear window breaker is nearest to the fuse box?? this should do the trick.

Front and rear window doesn't work. turn signals


short in wires but check all fuses to see they are not bad first. Its most likely bad wires or the electric components of the switch for the windows.

I want to remove passenger side rear door panel because window is down and won't stay up


Hi,
Hi!!

Here is a little information on how window regulator works. Also step by step instruccions on how to remove and install the window glass.

Door Glass & Regulator Power Windows
Diagnosis & Testing
When the rear window lockout feature is enabled, the circuit is open and no voltage is supplied to the rear window switches. When the feature is not enabled, the circuit is connected to battery positive voltage. If this circuit is shorted to ground when the lockout feature is not enabled, the PWR WDO circuit breaker may cycle continuously OFF/ON until, either the lockout switch is pressed to open the circuit, or the circuit breaker is permanently damaged. All windows may be partially or totally inoperative while the fault is present.
Inspect for aftermarket devices which could affect the operation of the system. Inspect the easily accessible or visible system components for obvious damage or conditions which could cause the symptom. Faulty electrical connections or wiring may be the cause of intermittent conditions.
Removal & Installation
Window Motor & Regulator
  1. Position window approximately half way down in the door.
  2. Remove the interior trim panel.
  3. Remove the water deflector.
  4. Tape the window to door frame to prevent it from moving.
  5. Remove the three front door window regulator motor screws.
  6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the window regulator motor.
  7. Remove front side door window regulator motor.
  8. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Window Switch
Front
  1. Remove the front door pull cup screws and pull cup from the front door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the front door power window control switch.
  3. Remove the front door window control switch using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Rear
  1. Remove the rear door pull cup from the rear door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the power window control switch.
  3. Remove the rear door window control switch from the pull cup using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the power window control switch to release the power window control switch retainer.

I have a 2003 ford crown victoria police car back power windows,only work from front buttons do not work from rear door buttons,works great from front


most police cars either did not come with the wiring in the rear doors, or was removed during conversion. they are typically a wiring nightmare, and everyone of them is different. you just have to dive right into it and try to find where the wiring modifications were performed. good luck!

Drivers electric window will not go down and rear window lock if toggled on or off does not lock rear and front passenger window.


Does the drivers window still go up? You can hear it try even when its already up. If so, replace your switch. Then keep the rain from getting on the new one. This is a problem for alot of cars. Water and electrical connections=no good

Power windows


so your front power windowsare not responding.But when electric windows stop working where do you look? The window is controlled by four main parts; the window motor, the window regulator, the part that holds the window and the control switch. When you move the switch one way or the other, an electrical current is sent to the window motor forcing the window to go up or down depending on the direction of the switch. Most window control systems are powered by a thermo fuse. A thermo fuse will cut power to the window circuit if too much electrical draw is being used. This serves as a safety device and helps keep the wiring from overloading due to over usage. Always wear protective safety goggles and gloves before work begins. (Warning: some electric window regulators are equipped with a helper spring that can have tension, use caution when disassembling)
