Specifically I'm trying to identify the wire on the spark plug coil assembly to which I should connect the signal wire of a Tachometer to. The wire colours are, red, yellow, green/white, and blue.


It says the tachometer wire is Yellow/Green, you do not have that listed. You will find it in the list below, it is highlighted..

My back window wont roll up at all


if there is a pause from when the motor starts to when the window moves it is a worn or faulty window regulator, the motor not starting when you press the up on the switch could be a bad switch, if you have a meter check for voltage at the switch when you press up.

My power windows in driver side and passenger back window wont go up or down.


A master switch may be at falt, but try you may want to check power gets to window motors, remove door panels and use your test lite activate switch and see if lites Ok then needs a window motor if no your master switch is bad..
Very rarely on this year you may also found broken wires between drivers door and vehicle, where harness pass from door to inside car, disconet harnes from inside left kick panel and pull it out towars door pull black rubber boot back remove electrical tape and check all wires if any open or split repair and rechek al over. good luck

My window on the drivers door wont come back up, replaced motor and had switch tested and its fine and it still wont come back up


Run a jumper wire to the motor from the fuse block to get this window up. The motor has two connections. One for up and one for down. If it goes up check the wiring between the wires inside the door to the inner kick panel area at the drivers side. If no continuity the wire is probably broken at the door hinge area inside the rubber boot. They are famous for breaking inside of the boot

All windows except the driver's wont go back up.


if ALL the windows won't work that's either a bad fuselink (Short special wire designed to melt) or the switch is bad

Emergency, get a cheap tarpaulin from wally world and cover the cab, don't forget wind, use some weights or carpenter's clamps and you're good for tonight

tomorrow to the dealership you go

Passenger power window on 1987 4 runner wont work


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

Driver side power window will not go up


You have a bad door motor. When you wait a few hours and it goes back up slow. The motor has had time to cool off and allows voltage to run thru the motor windings. common problem. You need a new motor. On some models you can remove the door panel and manually move the motor to roll up window.
