My drivers side window will not go up or down. Also, the door lock/unlock on the same side doesn't work either


Sounds like a connector is disconnected inside the driver side door. The connector is usually located near the front of the door. Removing the door panel could be a job you do not want to attempt, but the car being a 2004 you may want to try. The wiring for the door windows and locks goes through this door.

How fix rear window off track on 2004 toyota highlander


The door pull has 2 screws inside.
the manual window crank has a screw in the center of the pivot.
the power window style has a few screws at the control switch assembly.
the door handle has 2 screws(10 mm) deep inside.
The rest of the panel comes off by gently prying at the edges of the panel with a putty knife. There are plastic"poppers" that hold the panel to the door.
Easily broken.
Use a flashlight to see where they are. Be careful.

Drivers side window keeps popping out of seating while putting window down


I believe you have something broken inside the door.
If you remove the inside door panel and plastic cover, and take a good flashlight, try it and see if you can tell what is broken.
Sounds like the regulator has broken, at least in part.
Be blessed.

My 2006 F-150 drivers side control panel is dead & none of the electric windows, locks, mirrors or door sensor will work. I checked all the fuses & they are fine. The passenger door sensor &...


With the list you have, I would think broken ground wire in the rubber boot from the A-pillar to the door on the driver's side.
I have seen this one a few times ( not chronic but happens ).

It is a black wire in the door to a-pillar harness. SWAG at why the window worked when open part way, the wire touched at that one time, and pulled back apart again.

How do I remove the driver's door panel on my Toyota Corrolla 3 door automatic please? I then need to repair the electric window mechanism somehow. Many thanks. Cyril.


ffirst remove all screws that are holding it on approx 10, most are hidden by small round circles of plastic the same colour as the panel next you to be firm and pop it off from the door carefully there is about 10 of these clips which "pop" off then carefully lift upwards slighty unplug your electric window switch by pushing the tab on the plug itll come off. that's your door panel off. be carefull not to bump and of the metal wires you see running inside the door as these are to do with you door lock. to fix window gently pull down plastic moisture sheet on door first try another switch or give your switch a good clean, you can disasssemble it with a small screwdriver carefully, if still no difference replace your electric window motor which is bolted to the door in 3 places with 10mm bolts and is bolted to the window, unsure of what it is follow the wiring from the electric switch you unplugged will lead you to the electric motor, have fun

Power windows, door locks and mirrors inop.


Sounds familiar - I pulled the rubber boot back and found the black wire was broken. I stripped the wires and put on a couple bullet connectors (terminators) and all is good. Just wish I would have seen this post before I took the door panel off... Oh well...
