REMOVE THE REAR TRIM PANEL ON THE TAILGATE AND SEE IF THE MOTOR IS GETTING 12 VOLTS AND A GOOD CHASSIS GROUND CONNECTION, MANY TIMES THE WIRING HARNESS THAT GOES IN TO THE TAILGATE DEVELOPES A OPEN/BROKEN WIRE FROM THE REPEATED OPENING AND CLOSING OF THE TAILGATE, THE WIRE BREAKS INSIDE THE PLASTIC INSULATOR AROUND THE WIRE, SO IT IS NOT APPARENT ON VISUAL INSPECTION, REQUIRES THE USE OF AN OHM METER AND A VOLT METER.

Your problem, in order of your trouble-shooting, is either:
- the fuse for the window relay, or
- the window relay, or
- the dash switch, or
- the window motor.

For the fuse - pull out your owner's maniual and locate the page for the fuse-box diagram and find which fuse operates the rear window. Then locate your fuse box and (using that manual diagram) find the fuse and pull it. Check to see if the fuse-link inside it is solid or broken. If broken, then that's your problem and you just need to replace the fuse with the same amp-rating (the amp rating is stamped on top of the fuse. It''ll say "10A" or "15A" or maybe "20A" and be a distinctive color. Just run to the auto store and get that same color. You may even hacve a spae fuse of that type in a storage slot in the fuse box. Toyota does that on many models.
If the fuse link is solid, then re-insert the fuse back into its slot (firmly re-seat it) and try the dash switch again (sometimes the fuse contacts just need to be re-seated). If it still does not work, then move-on to next step; the relay.
To find the rear window relay, you'll need to do a bit of sleuthing. It is complicated, so I will just point you to a pdf file that takes you thru the access to the relay in the tailgate and the fix. It is at:

Good luck.

Sounds like something just fell apart inside. Probably just a roller or something. If you can't do it yourself, it shouldn't cost too much. Just make sure you stand there and watch, so you don't get ripped off. In fact, if you take the cover off the inside of the tailgate, maybe you can fix it yourself.

How do I replace back door lock cyl. on 92 4runner?


not really. it is best done with two people. remove the inside paneling, roll the window down and open the tailgate. then use a phillips screwdriver and push down the side tabs so the tailgate thinks it closed and roll the window up, have the second person hold the glass. You now have access to change the key cylinder.

I wound the tailgate window up while the door was open. Now it wont go down and I cant close the door.


put the doorlocks on the side of your tailgate into the locked position, then you will be able to retract the window. Once that is done, grab a screwdriver and unlock those locks so you can close the tailgate.

91 4 runner tailgate, window wont open


No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you

Toyota surf rear window will go up but not down


toyota's are prone to wiring rot. a Local toyota dealer has told me (with the same problem) to chop the middle of the pannel off for the tailgate to get into the wiring. the connectors may have rotted off. if you find a solution, let me know.

1994 Toyota 4Runner, Rear window goes down on one side but not the other and then won't go back up. The key and the console button both work but I heard some sort of metal component inside the tailgate...

'94 4runner 4dr. Inop. r/rear window & rt. frt. window will go down not up.


There is a saftey built into the tailgate that will interupt the ground to the switch in the center console with the tailgate open. This keeps the operator from trying to roll the window up with the tailgate open. If you have no ground to the rear window switch it is most likely the tailgate safety switch. If it is like my '88 it is built into the drvers side tailgate latch.
