2004 Toyota Camry Power Window Back Passenger Door
Window was froze shut; daughter kept messing with driver's button to work the window; she could hear the motor working but window was stuck; heard clunk, window fell down into the door and would not come back up. This a.m. my husband was looking at it. He messed with the button and was able to get the window up, but it won't go back down. We live in the Midwest so we're leaving the window up permanently now. Do you have any thoughts on what the problem is. My husband is a plumber and has mechanical experience and is hoping to be able to fix it himself.

Re: 2004 Toyota Camry Power Window Back Passenger Door
This is a common issue when the windows are frozen.
What probably happened is the metal part of the regulator that is fastened to the bottom of the glass has seperated from the glass. Ask him to get back to me when he pulls the inner door panel off to inspect it for more help. Thanks.

The master switch is the one located on the drivers side. If this switch has a malfunction it can rob power from the passenger side causing the problem you have. If the regulator/motor are in working order and you know the passenger switch is ok then that could be the problem. Another couple of possible problems could be a broken wire in the harness traveling from the car to the door (inside the rubber protective boot or a weak window motor (1990 is pretty old for a motor of that type.
more than likely one of the switches are bad (down side of switch works but up side of switch dont) being as the switches are wired together if one goes bad other one won't work either take the switch out one of back doors should be same as front passenger door put rear switch in front passenger door if works then u know front door switch is bad if it doesn't then drivers door switch is bad u replaced window regulator Did that come with motor too??? if not check to see if motor is good there is two wires going to motor cut isolation back on wires and using some jumper wires attach one wire to positive terminal of a 12 volt battery attach other wire to negative terminal of battery window should move up or down reverse connections and window should move other way
No.The drivers master power switch is probably bad.YOu will have to perform a test on the three other switches on the master. Check for power and ground when you push each putton.If the master switch fails the test you need a new master switch.
Can you hear the moter or do interior lights dim when pressing button? If so remove door panel and lubricate tracks and rolers using lithium grease lube only the tracks that do not come in contact with glass.
Check the connections at the switch and at the moter with a volt meter if there is power than time for a new moter. no power than check at drivers side switch. If no power there and fuse is ok you have a open in wires and will have to trace entire circut
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
You didn't say if the window doesn't work with both the switch at the drivers door and at the rear door. If it works at one and not at the other, then that switch is bad.
The windows all use the same fuse. Most likely the motor has froze up from corrosion, or the wire to it is broken. The wiring goes into the door by the hinges in a rubber convoluted hose, and it bends back and forth each time the door is opened and shut.
