There will be some dirt between the contacts.
The best way is to remove the centre console where the switch sits and clean the switch itself. It is an easy job, just a few screws to remove the center console.

I have a 1996 toyota 4runner with power rear window. The window goes down and up fine but after you put it up then it goes back down one inch by itself -- any ideas ??

I had similar problem on my 98 4runner it would even go all the way down on its own . I removed the rear panels controller mount, unplugged all the harnesses at the controller to cleanly remove the upholster panel and the steel panel so I could plug the controller harnesses back in to trouble shoot it without having panels hanging and dangling. I actually had to drill a rivet on controller mount.

I removed the front panel switch from the circuit. You can reach in under by the emergency brake handle and pop the switch assembly out the unplug the switch. I used my 12 volt battery from my RV and applied 12 volts directly to the motor (Pos to red, minus to green) to raise it all the way up, this did not cure the problem for me so I put the up/down switch back in the circuit.

Next I had to unplug the harnesses again and raise the window again with the RV battery. With window raised all the way you can reach the plug to unplug the key switch and remove it from the circuit. This fixed it for me so I left the key switch on rear tailgate unplugged and it now works fine with just the front panel switch.

Hope this helps

Which fuse is for the rear window wiper and rear window defogger on 2003 Toyota 4Runner (V6)?

You Have one fuse for the wipers in the car. Left side of steering wheel and the back cover should list the fuses and location. The other box is located in the engine compartment above the battery. They should list the fuse locations under the compartment covering the fuses. Hope that helps

I came out of work yesterday and noticed the rear window rolled all the way down and I know I hadn't done it and then again the same issue. it rolls up fine and does not seem to roll down when jostled...

I had similar problem it was the key switch in the rear tailgate. You need to remove the upholstered panel and then the steel panel and with the window all the way up you can unplug the key switch harness connector to remove it from the circuit. I left mine unplugged and now works fine with just the front panel switch.

Hope this helps

Rear window of 1993 4runner will not go up or down with key or via dash switch without manual assistance.

The rear window motor is on the way out, have it replaced. Soon helping it won't work and if down you won't be able to close it.

2004 4Runner Rear Wiper and Defroster won't work

I just had the same problem. I have an '04 4Runner and my rear wiper, fluid wash, and defrost stopped working after it was recently serviced. If you had the battery cables disconnected recently here is the solution...Start the engine and lower the rear tailgate window all the way... close the rear window and then turn the engine off. Restart the engine and the wiper,wash, and defrost. should work again. It has something to do with the computer which needs to be rebooted. Good luck.

93 4runner rear window motor slipping

disassemble, inspect gear drive on motor and regulator. Replace as necessary. When you say it slips. Im thinking you may mean it just doesn't want to move with any power. If its actually slipping. you have missing teeth on the gear or the regulator is damaged.

98 4Runner rear window no longer operates

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...
