Question about 1998 Toyota T100
The engine sound fine, it just shuts of. When I try to put the window up I see all the sticks jumping crazy like if drains the battery
The sticks? Some kind of voltage gauge?
Test the alternator with a voltmeter, make sure its output is good. If using the windows kills the engine, I think the alternator is weak or you maybe have a short in the power windows. But shuts off coming out of park, too? Does it not move, then?

Testimonial: "Yes the voltage gauge, n yes it does not move. Should I take the alternator out n check it at the local auto store or buy a voltmeter? I'm trying to spend the least amount of money"

the sliding door is probablly draining the battery,, have door checked.. make sure tracks are clean and hinges are not binding

I think you need a new alternator. Also check every fuse in depth. Make sure all the connections are in place and secure.

Have you tried replacing the master window switch? Just because the other windows work doesnt mean that switch for that window is good.
The main switch is controled by the drivers door main unit.....i had to use a forward force on my windows switch for it to work....so replaced the whole unit, you could find those on ebay cheap if local auto parts is expensive
