Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6
Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.
All of the windows are on one circuit, which has a circuit breaker, not a fuse.
If you have one window that is not working, I would rule out a power problem.
More than likely, and, we see this quite a bit, the window motor is probably the culprit. If the window is not used often, the brushes in the motor 'seize', and the power is not transmitted to spin the motor, to raise and lower the window.
What you can try:
Using a suitable tool, like a butter-knife, insert it between the rubber where the glass meets the door, slide the knife along the length of the glass; both sides. Sometimes, the rubber seizes the glass to itself, and holds the window from moving.
Another trick is to 'unseize' the motor. With the key on, have someone press the 'down' side of the affected window switch, and, with a large plastic or rubber mallet, tap on the inside of the door panel. The tapping may just free up the brushes, and the motor may start to work. In severe cases, the door panel may need to be removed to tap on the motor itself. If either of those work, you saved the cost of a new window motor.
Please try those two ideas, and get back to me, if you need any additional assistance.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. I hope my input helps you out.
