Fuse box rear , fuse #23 30 amp ! Do you know where this is located ? There is also a relay for the Rear window defogger , located in the same rear fuse box .
Fuse Block - Rear
Left side of the luggage compartment, behind the left rear wheel well . But you really need to know how it works , you can check fuse an relay .
Rear Window Defogger Operation
Battery positive voltage is supplied through the BATT 1 fuse in the underhood fuse block to the rear defog relay switched input. When the rear defog switch button is pressed, the body control module (BCM) energizes the rear defog relay by providing a B+ to the control circuit of the rear defog relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the relay switched input through the switch contacts and out the relay switched output to the rear window defogger grid. The HVAC control module houses the rear defog switch and also illuminates the rear defog indicator on the switch button, upon this request. Ground for the rear window defogger grid is provided by G301 for the Sedan or G302 For the Extended Sedan.
This could be caused by a blown fuse, or a pinched wire. Check your fuse box to confirm if there is a fuse for that section of the back windows. Since the roof could be is motorized it would work, but a fuse is usually what operated the windows. Good Luck.
all windows dead? not just drivers? (not stated)
all park lamps dead, all 9 outside lamps dead??????? 3 rear
2 front and sides.? dead, with HL switch to park position?
correct step 1 are fuses
step 2 scan it, the BCM will tell you why it can do its job.
it will.. in most cases.
there are 2 ways (and more) to check fuses.
1: test them all, works every time and takes no knowledge of system complexity. (using ohm meter or voltmeter)
2: read he operator guide and read fuse page. its there. lost that.?
3: read the FSM book or at alldata.com and it there. for sure.
can i assume all else works?, and drive car at night)???????
03 WJ jeep, it is , I have WK 10
so windows can go down so cant test up. on all doors.
Tail lamps. 03.
so front parking lamp work but not rear tail nor rear license plate lamps? that it? the parking lamps is the better name
other wise the front tail lamps out sounds funny.
JB box Fuse 6 runs all park lamps front rear sides and license
so did you miss those lamps?
the relay that runs the run all lamps. all park lamps. lots.
the BCM controls (computer body) controls that relay.
so if main battery is weak the BCM will go nuts. does car drive ok at night
there is no common demoninator for park and windows.
besides the BCM. it controls 31 major things in the body.
ill check that next. but not windows.
fuse 12 runs this. PDC fuse box under hood. 50 amps (huge)
ok there is a link from dead parks to windows
that is because the BCM sees you operate the switches
then sends serial commands on the CAN/PCI buss to the door window controllers.
so if you had scanned the pcm , and say gross can buss errors.
why not get the car scanned first and show DTC error you have
I'll BET LOTS>!
do the 31 other things work like wipers.
door locks dead.
drive to any shop and say scan my car and get all DTC errors , not just 1 of many.
The window defogger is often powered through a circuit breaker, which should be located at the driver's side fuse panel. If you have power at the window connector, likely the window grid may need repair. Toyotas have relays everywhere, but fuses are usually only under the hood in the Power Distribution Box, and at the driver's side fuse panel.
it is in the owner manual. look up fuses in the index. Unless you have the small quick tips book.
You have a fuse box under the hood and one on the drivers side under the dash. I can look it up tomorrow at work. The fuse covers should have info too on where the fuses and relays are. Usually a fuse and a relay control the windows because they draw a lot of power. Do all the windows not work? Do any work from their own switch?
I had the same thing happen...I already had the rear door taken apart because the latch mechanism had failed and I was replacing that (not too bad a job: $100 part and 2 hours)...while I had the door apart I tried tapping on the window motor with hammer to get it working again...that did not seem to do anything. I then started looking at fuses.. There are 3 fuse boxes under the hood, and 1 panel by the driver's left knee. The top left fuse in the driver's left knee fuse box was labeled "TAIL". I pulled that one and even though it was not burned through...it looked a little funny (had some discoloration on the contacts like it had been getting hot). I replaced that and then shut the rear door and started up the engine. What do you know..everything works. I think it was likely the fuse...but who knows. Maybe this will work for someone else too.
I have a 98 Camry and was having problems with tail lights and fuses. I kept blowing a fuse which was making my tail lights not work. I tried paying very close attention to when they would be working and all the sudden not be working. I know it sounded funny, but I told my mechanic that it seemed if I used my trunk, my fuse would blow. Come to find out, the wire was touching the hinges of my trunk. So when I popped my trunk and closed it, it blew my fuse every time.
