Question about 1998 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Driver's side window switch doesn't work.The switch that lowers and raises the driver's side window in my 1998 Toyota Avalon has stopped working. Until last week, it worked sporadically. I think the switch has finally failed or there is a bad connection. How do I remove the panel in which the window switches and electric door lock are located?

I know on some toyotas, you do not need to remove the door panel just the handle where the switch assembly is located...if the panel around the switches is plastic then pry GENTLY up on the plastic to dislodge it from the door handle and inspect connections there...if everything checks out fine, then check fuses...perhaps this was a problem for so long that the window motor finally blew a fuse. if so replace both fuse and motor...if fuses okay, then with a long screw driver locate any screws under the door handle, bottom of the door panel, mirror panel etc, and remove...then gently pry outwards on door panel until it is released. disconnect your harness at the window motor and hook in a test light and operate the switch..if light illuminates, replace motor..if not, then replace switch or switch panel..which ever/.

1998 toyota driver side window switch will not run any windows but lock button still works


"...when master switch remove, NO WINDOWS WORK"
This is correct--your master switch is part of the total circuit for all the windows to operate. Assuming the other windows work on their "relative" switches (passenger switch works passenger window etc.), you can assume this; it is not a relay problem. You only have one relay--a bad one would affect all window switches.
First, check your ground wires! Disconnect, clean (abrasively) and reattach)
Second, use a test light (starting at the master switch terminal) to determine if and why it's not getting voltage.

I press the switch to raise the window, the window will raise a few inches then stop but as soon as I release the button the window automatically lowers on its own, creepy. Not sure what to fix


Sounds like your switches in your door need to be replaced,, most pry out easy and then unplug.
other than that, i would say perhps a relay is messed up. If you are not talking about the "drivers door" then you still could have a problem with the switches in the drivers door because "all"the windows are routed threw the drivers door switch pannel.. good luck! OH ya, most junk yards should have a cheep replacement....
