Drivers Power Window Mystery
I read all the power window topics on the forum, can't quite find the answer. Need help from the gurus.
2001 Rav4. Driver side power window does not work. All other windows operate, door lock and window lock works from the master switch. Just the driver window is dead.
I took panel apart, disconnected motor connector, jumped it with a motorcycle battery and window motor works nice and strong. So its not the motor.
So was thinking it has to be the switch. Bought a used one from ebay ($40), but has exact same problem! No way both switched would have the exact same fault. Well, at least the odds would be pretty high that both have the exact problem.
I used an ohmmeter to check the wiring from switch to motor, its ok.
But have no voltage coming from master switch to drivers window. Checked all fuses to rule those out, they are fine.
WTH could be the problem? There has to be something I am missing. I downloaded all of the power window docs from Toyota Tech, don't know whats up.
Can anyone help me with this? I came too far to go cowering into the Toyota repair shop with failure written on my face!
Oh, one of the tech docs mentioned a fault code that can be read from the window switch AUTO light (with flashes etc). Mine doesn't light up at all. Don't know if thats a clue, but thought I would mention it and give you guys all the details.
Anyways..... I look forward to the solution! lol
