Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Power windows i recently changed out the motor for my passenger side window. the new motor worked for a while and then it stopped. my power door locks stopped which also worked previously. i disconnected the connectors for the new motor and everything is still the same. ichecked all f the fuses and relays. it was still no go. i checked the power at the master switch and it did not have any power on any of the pins. does anyone know where the circuit breaker is located or is there another solution?Thanks!

I have to say it its a bad relay for the windows somtimes they come with more than one and the other will be in engine compartment or under dash
but over all i believe it to be relay cause relays can have a good check and then fault once everythings back together i would just go and buy the relay package for your vehicle so that all relays have a new set you might run into same problem down the rode with other relays might as well replace all

relays need to maintained or be brand new after 100,000 miles every 100,000 miles this keeps vehicle in running condition

there is a way to check power using a fused guaged wire fined good power source and touch the switches power pins this should run the window motors giving them power once you by pass the actual wireing with a fused guaged wire you will know its a bad relay cause the wireing has to go threw the relay first

The odds of both switches going bad at the same time is high, remove the door panel and tap on the window motor with a hammer, while trying the switches. I may have jammed up. Ground a test light and check the motor connection, while trying the switch, power will show on either side depending on if it turning up or down

Most probable cause , ,,, when you open & close the door, the wires in the rubber boot (accordian like) harness in between the door hinges, get cut and will cause alot if issues, without burning a fuse !

Sounds like the passenger side window motor has a bad connection or is shorted internally. There should be a motor plug in connector for the passenger side, as they are multiprong, it is possible for one part to work and the other not to work.

Unplug the wiring connector for the lock/motor and use a tester to see if the signal is consistent from the buttons you are using. One thing that is a little of a disadvantage is having the door open to work on the wires and closed for real world operation. A broken wire may wiggle to work when the doorjam is open and fail when the door is closed.

When the window seals start leaking on the outside glass, the rain can drip onto the motor. Also cracked solder is a common failure when motors go bad.

My passenger side electric window has stopped working, doesnt work when operated from passenger or drivers side. Have changed the switch what else could it be


The next step of course would be the window motor and or the window motor harness inside the door. Pull the door panel off and check to see if the motor gets battery power when the switch is operated.

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

It is most likely the switch - this part will be a little cheaper than the motor, so I suggest starting with that first. Then, if that doesn't work, replace the motor.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Power window switchs on 1996 gmc jimmy


Inspect or replace the window lock and unlock switch on the drivers door power window switch. There is a lock and unlock switch that will disable the switches to the other power window in the Jimmy. Check to make sure that switch is in the unlock position to have the other power window switch to work.
Thank you for suing fixya and good luck.

If the window had not been slow in it's action before it stopped working I'm guessing you only have a connection problem. I would remove the door panel and using a multimeter check the hot wire to see if power is reaching the switch. If it is check the connection on the motor. If power is reaching the motor through the switch you have a faulty motor. If at any point of testing there is no power backtrack the power wire to find where the break is. (it's usually in the door jam)

Hello. The power windows each need a new window motor assembly which includes a new track system. The advantage to the assembly is that it is very difficult to remove the motor and install a new one. the power door locks on the passenger side the most likely cause is the power door lock actuator, about a ten dollar part.

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.
