RF power window not working properly on 2001 toyota highlander
Power window works great for approx. 30 sec. then stops working, after a minute or so it works fine again for 30 sec., checked regulator it is fine, nothing is binding. Is there a relay for each window motor as the passenger front window is the only one giving trouble. If no relay in circuit, I would suspect the motor is bad.
Re: RF power window not working properly on 2001 toyota...
2002 Hylander 4cyl. all power windows work from the driver's arm rest control however, all of the other arm rest power window controls do not work separately on their own.
checked all the fuses and they are ok.

I have a 2003 highlander and when I brought the car in for the "free" computer update at 110,000 miles they told me the idle air control valve needed to be replaced before they could do the "free" upgrade! Cost from dealer $00 labor, $500 for parts. I cleaned it like other said and it worked for awhile but eventually I went to the parts store and bought the part for $200. Trying to find a good breakdown of exactly where it is on the throttle body was impossible. Everything said I had to disconnect the cables to the throttle body. I didn't want to do this for fear of changing the settings. Once I had the part in my hand I climbed up into the engine bay to see behind the throttle body and ther was the control valve! 2 screws, removed it, cleaned the gasket, put it on the new valve and replaced the valve. Works great at 136,000 miles. I have the old one all cleaned up in case I need to change it again. Total cost just a little over $200 with tax and cleaning solutions. Time to replace 30 minutes if you take your time! I don't go back to toyota any more, they want to rip you off everytime.
If all you windows are inoperative, check the fuse first, then check the main power supply to the master window switch. As for the indicators, they normally share a fuse with one or more circuits, so if perhaps your reverse lights are not working, check a fuse there as well. Otherwise look at the indicator flasher relay and finally the indicator switch and its wiring and connectors.
You either have excessive dirt in the rubber channels that are slowing the window down, or, you have a bad window motor. Try spraying some 100% silicone spray into the tracks, beside the window, and raise/lower it. If that does not work, the positive coeffcient thermister in the motor is bad; ie replace the motor.
I recommending cleaning the idle air control valve. It get clogged with black carbon and doesn't work properly. It is easy to do and cheap. I understand it should be done periodically. I cleaned my husband's Ford F-150 IAC valve and solved the problem he has been having for, literally, years. My Toyota highlander '02 started acting up and I cleaned mine...worked like a charm. You use throttle body cleaner (spray).
you may need service. generally, if a window pops off it's track, it's more than some DIYers can handle. if you manage to get the window in the "up" position, and the higlander uses a tailgate-style access to the rear, you lose that access. toyota windows are notorious for popping off their tracks.
