Question about 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

Power windows and locks don't work properly

First started with the locks - from the interior switches, stopped working - and still don't work from inside the truck, but they work fine when you use the key. (2 months in this condition)

Second, the windows wouldn't go back up, but after about a 15 minute attempt to chase down the problem - checked fuses (OK), they started working again. Out of frustration I elbowed the door panel. I may have "reset" whatever was failing.

I think I have a deteriorating situation with the driver's side switch panel, wiring or the relay. I've seen some other traffic on the blogs that suggest a voltage problem - could this be a voltage regulator issue?

Are both lock and window systems on the same relay?

Would the fact that the locks work fine from the key indicate that it's not the relay?

The dealer started drooling when i told him about the problem. I've only got 80k miles on this (it's been treated well since new) and feel that this shouldn't be happening. Any help on all of this would be appreciated. Thank you

This is a common problem especially on the first gen 100series (1998-2000), the problem is in the master switch panel in the driver door, it is very rarely the relay, you could try and open the individual switches for a clean out and re-assemble, but its better to go to the breakers yard and get another unit, or a brand new one from the dealer ( expensive!!!).
The unit is designed to unlock the door automatically if you leave the key in the ignition and try and lock the door manually, the problem seems to stem from this function. however its mostly faulty panels units.
Newer cruisers dont have seem to have this issue iwth faulty switch panels.

Odyssey power window switch


You will need to start with removing the drivers side interior door panel. You will need a test-light and check for power and ground at both the suspected switch and the window motor. At the switch, test for power and ground going into the switch. Then test he other side for power and ground going out. Test for power and ground at the power window motor too.Please write back with what you have found and write back, good luck.
