Question about 1991 Toyota Camry

Power window problem

I've had my 1991 4cyl Camry DX for 3 years now and I'm finally getting around to dealing with my window problem. The rear driver power window worked when i first got the car, then began to have problems - sometimes not responding to the window buttons - then it wouldn't work at all and hasn't for 2 years now. What are the possible causes of the problem other than wiring and the motor, and how do i diagnose them? I tested the wiring switch - there are 5 wires, i presume 2 of them connect to the driver's window control button, and 2 are for the LR door itself, not sure what the 5th wire is for though... one circuit is fine, the other one has a significantly higher resistance reading... but i feel like one shorted circuit shouldn't prevent the other from working. I need some advice. Thanks in advance!

Hey ive had a problem like this with my intrepid, it could be the actual switch and the only way to that is taking the switch from the other side to see if the problem is still there

I have a 2011 camry. My rear right power window does not work from driver main switch. please help.


Most often when the car battery is removed for any purpose, most of the components are required to be re-learned again.Probably it needs to be re-learned as follows:Please sit on the rear right seat, press the window button to lower it. When it come down hold the button for not more than 3 seconds. Release the button. Then pull the button to bring the window up and hold it again for 3 seconds after it touches the upper rest, and then release it.
Now check the window operation by operating it from driver side button.
It is supposed to work fine. If not then check the driver side toggle switch, wire harness for looseness or discontinuity.

Ecectric windows and locks will not work


POWER WINDOWS AND LOCKS
Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

1996 Toyota Camry DX .. The rear and passenger side windows don't work. It's obviously not the fuse, since the fuse is for every window.. Its not a motor, since that would be three motors blown at one...


Well seems you are on the right track, a common element but not the fuse. I would take the master window switch and the rear window disabling switch out and see if you cannot disassemble them to check for a breakdown in the conducting metal strips or the connector plugs. Some of them can be taken apart and the "points" cleaned with emery boards and erasers. Tough to find a new part for a car that old.

2000 toyota camry rear window


This isn't so much of a solution as it is an understanding. My rear passenger window just started doing the exact same thing a few weeks ago. I finally had to get black duct tape that matches the color of my car to keep it up. Sorry I couldn't help you more, but would love to find a solution myself.

My Toyota Camry 2006, the rear left power window behind the driver's side, does not open. I tried to open it using both driver's control and the rear door control. Nothing works. I assume the motor is...


Simple things first, check the dedicated fuse for that window specifcally. if it's ok then check for ground and power at the regulator motor itself. If you have power and ground then it is the motor.

Power window toyota camry


Fuse box is by drivers left knee. Above this are the flashers and about 3 inches above this is the circuit breaker for the windows and door locks. breaker is silver, about 1/2 by 5/8 inch and in the center is the button you need to push in to reset. I used an unbent paper clip to press it. Make sure unit is not energized. May need to unplug breaker first. Press in center button until it clicks.

Divers window won't roll up my Camry


No won't be fuse. My guess is there is something faulty with the main controller. You could probably verify this by trying the switch on right rear passenger door. If it works there then the problem is at the main controller in the driver door. Could be a loose wire or the switch itself is broken.

1990 camry power window problem


It is rare that the power window relay will fail. Personally, I would look to see if there is power at the master switch on the driver's door. Anywhere. If the is NO POWER, you have a broken wire between the door & the LF kick panel where the wires come thru the body into the door shell. If there is power, the master switch is narmally the culprit
