Question about Toyota 4Runner
Sounds like you blew a fuse. The fuse involved is a circuit breaker but a fuse will fit where it goes it's a little medal box. If you have the owers manual it tells you which one it is. Wer'e Talking about the rear tailgate? The rest of the car works fine? Are the other windows power or crankup? if their power do they work? the switch is in the dash, pry it out as it just pops in. theres three wires on it . the power wire that comes on with the key and the up wire and the down wire. With a test light see if the power is there if not run a jumper to it and see what happens the power wire could be shorted to ground as could the up or the down wire so be careful. You hit a good wire the window may god down or up/ You put power on the power wire and the switch may put the window up and down both. The same ciucuit that runs the heater blower off the igtion switch is what turns the window relay on and if the heater blowrer works the window realy should be turning on and off. In side the rear door theres another wire ther thats hot all the time it just happens to use the same circut braker that the relay for key on does so if it's bad they're both dead. With the door panel off the door you can see the wires and the biggest wire should be hot if its not drag a power wire to it and jump power to it and see if the key wii put the window down now you can open the window and open the gate. Te wire can break right where the wire harness goes from the body to the door so if the fuse and the dash switch are hot and the window won't go the wires and the motor and even the window being stuck are likly. with the panel off the two wires hooked to the motor should bcome hot as you throw the switches one way and then the other as you try to go the other way. The two switches are independant except they both get their power from the same fuse the dash switch gets no power with the key off but the door key is hot all the time the battery is good. Motor bad or the window stuck and nothing happens. with the panel off and the window can be unbolted from the regulater and removed or lowered and as it haits the bottom it's closes the switch that lets you open the gate. now ou can fit what ever broke and it you don't like woring on power windows you may as well hire it done I like em myself 5 percent of my lifetime earnings are in electric windows.
