Question about 2008 Scion Tc

Window resistance when open/closed

I had my door reskined and since its been back from the shop the window sits to close to the outside of the door and excessively rubs on the weatherstripping when raised and lowered.. so much that it squeaks and makes other noises when going up and goes up slow. But the window sits fine when its up doesnt rattle or anything i just need to get it adjusted so it is a little closer to the inside of the door when raising and lowering so theres not so much pressure on the outside weatherstripping.

SOURCE: The window switch on the


  • So if I understand you correct the drivers door switch is not working for the rear window.
  • Try using the the switch on the rear door for that window then.
  • The master switch is great to work all windows but the rear window switch should still work as well even if the master switch on the drivers door fails.
  • Now if both switches should don't work then it may not be a switch failure at all. this could be a wiring issue or a burnt window motor/regulator.
  • In this case you will nee some help as you are going to "help" the regulator out. Once you get it up I advise to let it be until repaired. You don't want to stress the track up to much before the whole assembly is replaced (should this be the problem).
  • So if both switches don't respond the your going to grab the window (one hand on each side of the window) as if your palms are touching and pull up at the same time the switched is being pushed up.
  • It may take a bit to get it but it will be fine.
  • If the window is down in the door (in the way down position) then get your fingers in there and grab the window and slowly pull up on it. Make sure the switch is being pushed to roll the window up at the same time.
  • Once you get it up a bit then take it the rest of the way as explained above.
  • I have had to do this on a few occasions and it works fine.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I have a 2007 Hyundai Accent and I am having trouble with my doors and windows my driver side door won't unlock from the outside


There is a mechanical linkage that connects the lock cylinder to the mechanism. The linkage has a plastic coupler that has probably failed. As to the window it sounds like a failed switch. Any repair shop or body shop should be able to fix both easily.

Driver door on my 1997 Lin Towncar will not close tight un less a windown is cracked open ( any window). What is my problem?


The latch striker may be adjusted just a bit too tight. What is happening is that when you attempt to close the door, the air pressure inside the vehicle resists the door closing. That is why opening a window solves the problem. There is no back pressure to fight the door closing. If the latch is adjusted properly, then you just need to put more oomph into closing the door.

Why does my 2006 toyota sienna power sliding door not close properly


Could be resistance in one of the tracks, or the motor.
If the motor hits a resistance the door opens in case the resistance is a human.

Power window open partially with inside or outside


inside the mechanical lock (The part that actualy holds the door shut when you close it) there is a switch that informs the control unit that the lock is either locked or unlocked.
These switches fail sometimes, when this happens the control unit is not aware that you have opened the door, and therefor will not wind the window down slightly.
The switch is integral with the lock unit, and they are not easy things to replace either.

Window returns to high position, preventing door closing properly


I have a 02 Carrera and had the problem of the window remaining too high and preventing closing. i took the car to the dealer and they did something with the door handle mechanism, like unscrewing it and putting it back in place, which fixed the problem, no charge i think. i also had a bad starter switch and light switch on the front panel. when these were changed, my car now starts well and all lights work in the instrument cluster, which was a problem before.

Driver's Side Window Won't Stay Up


As mentioned here, this worked for me on a 55 reg:

Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Then follow the calibrate instructions that can be found under "Windows" in the owner's manual. Took less than 5 minutes in all to fix.

Window module and going up too high


I had the same problem. The window goes up to high because a L shaped bracket has come off the window.This bracket basically restricts the height of the window. Take the door panel off retrive the bracket that is roaming free inside your door and glue back on.There are 2 brackets both glued to the window.one sits on the outside of the window the other ontop of that but inside.Use a strong glue otherwise it will keep happening. To anwer the first point the window is not supposed to go down.
