    the power windows stopped working and will not go up what can i do to fix it?

  • Buddy Jr Oct 24, 2008

    The windows will go down pretty good, but when trying to raise them, it acts as if there is an overload relay kicking out, causing a sudden loss of power.
    The longer it sits without using, the further the window will go up. Seem like a relay, or something, has to cool off, before it can run the window up further.
    It's aggravating as the dickens.

    the power window went down, but will not come up. is there a manual crank somewhere?

  • Anonymous Nov 08, 2008

    I have the same problem. The switch is a basic setup but when replaced, it still doesn't solve the problem. When I test the power going to the switch, I hear a module under the dashboard make a noise. A little black computer module exists under the dashboard (est. 2"wide X 4 inches) that makes the noise. I put my hand up there and yanked it off the mount (it has a preasure clip that holds it in place). I replaced it with on from a junk yard and there is still no power window control. I replaced the fuse etc.. but all so far hasn't worked.

I also had this problem, and it is a relatively easy fix if its the same as yours.
It would appear that the switch for the window in the door can get dirty over time, probably due to finicky door seals. The best way to deal with this is to take apart the door and clean out the switch.
As for lenedavis97, checking the fuses is a good place to start. These can be found in the glove box and most cutlasses have replacements provided.

1999 Toyota Camry intermittent window will not go up and down

On the actuating motor their is a small solenoid switch that needs to be sprayed with an electrical contact cleaner. It is also a thermal switch that will shut off power if something is binding the closing or opening of the window, and will come back on after about three minutes after it cools down.The best check is to slam the door pretty hard and see if that makes it work. That will pinpoint the problem as being in the door.

take the door cover out .look for the door window wiring make sure you have power going down to the switch.if you do have power going to the switch,then its time to check if the power its going from the switch to the door window motor,if you have power on getting to window motor and the motor is not working,then the motor its bad need to be replace.before all of these steps to fallow.
check in the fuse box the fuse,the fuse that is related with the door window motor,it should be shown in the fuse box cap.good luck.

Toyota sienna conductor power window dont work ,it would get down but won't get up

The conductor meaning the drivers door window? Sure a common problem with mre than one solution. Depends if you left the window down in the rain plwed your POP or other refreahing beverage on the switch or its got a lot of use on it and the motor wore out or the baby standed on the switch Windows do come off the track and get hard to move and even the motor will time out. inspect switch as the fuses are good if the other windows work as the same fuse works them all. Theres only two wires going from the switch to the motor and they just reverse to go the other way and theres a relay that energizes to make the window go all the way down on one push. But not up. It takes more power to put the window up tand therefore an old motor will not be able to close a window that it just opened. Jogging the switch to up while banging on the inside of the door way shake the motor into it's last try. grab the glass and help it close. Then fix it or have it fixed when you get time or money as Motors are $80 Window regulaters are $160 and the man with his hand out for fixing it going to be over $80 and hopefully under$200
