    FYI, I did have window lock engaged earlier in the day.
    My son tried lowering window. Rear passenger window behaved as if the window lock was engaged. I checked it and it was off. All windows except front driver side had same problem. Engaged and disengaged lock and it finally went down but not all the way. I tried my switch and it went down sloooooooow into door. Then I couldn't get back up. Kept messing with lock with no response. It may be a coincidence but it went up without a problem after I was in drive and went into reverse to back into driveway.

    How would toyota begin to troubleshoot something like this? I guess I'll have to try to reproduce on my own first. Loose plug on window lock?

    Thanks

    Sounds like maybe the connections on the lock switch are loose, or maybe the switch is bad, dropping all the current at the switch and leaving very little to operate the window with. I'd crack into the door and see what you find. If its not a difficult job, try splicing the wires together without the switch and see if it fixes your problem. I doubt it'll be simple though since they're usually sealed connectors. You'd be cutting in behind the switch, and then have to splice it back together when you get a new switch.

    Thanks. Sounds logical enough.
