Question about 1995 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Drivers door window would go down but come back up only inch at a time then would have to wait five minutes and then it would come up another inch. Is it the regulator or the motor. the car is a 99 camry, and is this something i can do myself(with limited car fixing experience and even more limited cash dollars)

    I have had the same problem with my 1991 Toyota Camry. The driver's side window would go down with no problem, but it would barely go up, then stopped going up at all. The first time it happened, 2 mechanics told me it was a very expensive electrical problem. Another mechanic checked it out and said it was a problem with a blown fuse. He replaced the fuse at no cost and it fixed the problem.



    Now, 6 years later I am having the same problem and am being told that it has to do with the motor that controls that window on the driver's side. Cost to fix is estimated at $350. The mechanic insists it isn't a fuse, but think I will get a second opinion. Unfortunately, the mechanic who fixed it the first time has moved out of state.

Sounds like worn out motors pulling lots of amps to do the job in all thee cases, especially if the other windows are okay.
You can, if you're patient and cool, ( or know somebody who is...) swap the left rear window motor with the driver window motor.
My left rear was factory-new because nobody ever rode back there.
You have to use a motor from the same side, and the driver motor has to go into the left rear door
because it keeps the window up.
Be patient, take your time, allot and allow a complete day to do it and when it's done write a check to yourself. You'd have to write it to somebody, right???

My 2000 ford taurus will not sart unless you unlock the doors using the hand held transmitter. The transmitter to unlock the doors got wet and now the car will not start. is there a way to bypass?


no it is a anti theft design, try disconnecting the battery with the doors unlocked windows down, insert the key into the ignition doors closed, reconnect the battery, wait five minutes the reach in through the window and tray and start the car, hope this helps

My drivers side power window went down and now wont go all the way up. It will only go up about 3 inches then stops


Three inches at a time, or three inches total? If three inches at a time, you need a power window motor. If three inches total, you need a window regulator. Both these items are typically replaced as an assembly anyway.

I don't have the door key to my 1997 Nissan Maxima and my remotes are no longer working at all, how can I bypass the alarm going off so I can drive the car? The anti theft system won't allow it to start


after the alarm stops going off... do not touch anything... wait 10 minutes or longer... if you are in the car with the doors closed, and the alarm has run through it's cycle and is no longer sounding, do not touch the locks or open the door you will set off the alarm again each time you do this.... attempt to start the vehicle, it will probably just turn on but wont crank or start. this is the immobilizer. It thinks you are tying to steal the car. Since the 97 does not have a key with a chip in it, it will eventually start. However, only after I waited almost 20 minutes without touching anything except to put the key in the ignition and try to start the car withdrawing the key completely each time. This has only happened to me twice because I just don't lock the car anymore. I keep nothing of value in it ever. Each time I got the car to start after waiting and apparently it will start after some time if you push to roll down the driver side window... Haven't been able to find any other mention of this on the internet, somehow this was the trick to getting the car to start again after my remote quit working, and like you i only have a worn down ignition key. It worked for me with all doors except for the drivers side closed. I just kept trying to insert the key and start it, while rolling the drivers side window up and down. Eventually it started after like 30 minutes and after one press to roll down the drivers side window.

Motor is overheating due to drag in the window tracks or possibly shorted windings. Try using silicone lube spray in the tracks. If this doesn't work, you probably need a new motor.

you'll need to remove your door panel (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything. It could be the motor, arms, or the gears that are faulty...
