Take the door panel off and be careful doing it. Most likely it is only a loose connection with a wiring harness that goes to the motor or it could need a motor all together. They aren't hard to change. Only 3 bolts holds the motor in place but yours sounds like a loose connection. It's possible someone has already had the panel off before and just didn't plug the harness in very good into locked position and now it has fallen off.

Follow me here: The driver side passenger window will go up and down while operated independently with the switch on its door. However, the driver seat master switch will not control window to go down


Not following you completely.
When you say driver side passenger window, you mean the driver side rear window ?
The window motors get power thru a power window control unit and thru the driver master switch.
You'll need a shop manual with the wiring diagrams to track down the problem.

The power windows on my 90 4runner stopped working


If the driver's window works, and the rest do not, I would start with testing the driver switch. The other windows are powered thru that master switch.

Windows won't go up or down and interior lights stay on


You have two separate (and unrelated) electrical issues.
(1) windows - probably the fuse is blown - replace. If it keeps blowing fuses, then you have a
short somewhere in the wiring to the window operator motors or the switch to raise/lower
the windows (any soda/latte been spilled on one of the switches lately?, or perhaps a window
left open overnight in a rainstorm?).

(2) interior light staying on - almost always a stuck/corroded/worn door switch - play with all
four & you'll find which one has gone marginal (97% of the time its drivers door switch,
since the driver's door gets more usage than all the other doors put together).

when the window has reached the top position keep the window switch up for 15 sec,operate the window complete down and when down hold the window switch down for 15 sec test this after. all you are doing is to teach the control unit the limit stop and open position.

Not a short, a shot is when a positive and negative wire touch, that blows a fuse, what you have is a problem with a component called the BODY CONTROL MODULE, you might say it is the central brain of all the electrical systems except the engine and transmission which have there own brain.
