    I had this problem more than once -- first it was the master switch, in a few years again the problem with the fronty passenger widnow. Both times the contacts in the sitches were bad -- just clean then and gently file. Getting them out is not difficult once the door panel is removed.

Verify near the door hinges there is a rubber boot (hose). Remove that and verify u don't have broken wires there.
If that's not ur problem, chances are it's the switch itself that's defective or sadly the motor is burnt.
Possibility that u have bad or corroded connections as well.
Get back to me if u have questions.

1999 Toyota Camry LE - Driver's Side Electric Window

What you have could be one or both of the following:
Dirty/sticky window tracks, or a window motor issue.
What I would do before you take it in: Get some 100% silicone spray, lower the window, and spray the lubricant down inside the door, on the rubber strip that the window travels in. Run the window up & down to get the lubricant worked in. See if that helps.
What is happening here is this: There is a thermister built into the drive motor, and when the motor gets a little too hot (working too hard, with dirty window rubbers), it opens, like a circuit breaker. When it cools off, the thermister contacts close, and the window works again. 2 things cause this: Dirty window run rubbers, or a motor that is beginning to fail.
Hope this helps. Feel free to comment back for more info...
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
