Hi I have a problem with the power window on the back. The right passenger side. I have put a new motor on and have changed the main power switch located on the driver's side. Did a continuity check on rear switch and also switched with the other side. I think the problem maybe with the relay but I do not know were it is located. Can you help me with that? There are 3 and maybe on under the dash not sure. I have a 92 Toyota Camry, Sport LE. Tks

Re: failed power window
I'd bet on a broken wire in the harness going to the drivers door. I suggest the drivers door because it is used the most often. You can pull the master switch and check the wires for continuity to the harness just under the dash at the fuse box, after removing the lower dash trim panel. Sometimes you can gently pull on the wires of the door harness from under the dash and one will pull right out. Thats how I found mine.

Remove inside door handle then the panel. Inside the door you'll see the window tracks and motor. Remove the window from the motor bracket and slide it out. May have to remove a clip or two. Slide new window back in the track and secure it to the motor bracket.
Test the MASTER switch at the drivers side. It seems to be a "wiring problem with the Master switch. The master switch is the switch that controls ALL the cars windows.
The passenger window switch gets both power and ground from the master switch. You have replaced the passenger side switch and it still had the same result and if the wiring is good from the master switch to the passenger side switch, then the only thing left would be the power window master switch. Check all wiring of the Master switch. That's the only thing that's left to do.
The motor on the passenger side is shorted and is now tripping the circuit breaker. Odds are, the back window motor is also bad. You have to take the panel off to check the motor. You can power it directly to verify it has failed.
some times by banging on door panel while pushing switch,,if the window moves,,then put it up & go get a window motor,if you want you have to take inside door panel off to excess the power motor or to ck power with test light
you can take the door pannel off and unplug the wiring to the window motor. take a test light and check for power wile you try to roll the window down.if you have power and a good ground going to it then you have a bad window motor. you can pick up a window regulator and motor at any local junk yard for a lot less than the parts store or the dealer
I can't read and guess that the passenger door window doe'nt work. The switch on the passenger side will not et the window operate from either switch the master can be bad and it won't work from either switch. The switches are not often a problem compared to jamed windows and burned out or rusted motors. All the wires at the passenger switch are at the master switch except the motor wires for the passenger door, their colors don't change so if one desnt get there electrically the window won't work as this is an old car the door hige area has the wire harnesse and the broken wire is almost always in the driver door hinge area, with the driver kick panel removed find where the wires come out of the tube coming from the door. pull on them one at a time and the one that pulls out is broke. Connect a new wire in the kick area to the wire coathanger wire the new wire thoght the tube into the door take the door panel off find the samcolor wire pull on it and it will come out connect your new wire and its done! Shure there can be more than one wire broke and the switches can fail. Tesw by aking the wire pluged inton the passenger motor put in a test light and try the switches with the key on one direction will light one wire and the other direction the other wire. noting the color of the wires plug the motor back in and find them at the door swich in the passenger door put power and ground from a battery chager jumper cables or ajump box on the motor wires reverse the wires and try again if it still doesnt work and makes no sound you'll need to change the motor. Most parts stores will have the motor in stock but the driver motor is more popular but it wont fit. Be careful removeing and puting the panels as they are hard to rpair and even herder to find an aceptable replacement. Your parts store or dept store can provide you with the right panel tools. Money changes everything with these tools cheap tools make ahard job harder saving old panels is diffacult with the best tools. Professtional help from a practiceing mechanic may save money time and finished quality. This is a hard job to teach yourself. Do it yourself for the first time with a person who's done it before at leasttill you see how it goes if you have to do this work yourself
