    Rear passenger window was stuck down.

    I checked the fuses, replaced the rear passenger window motor and it starting working again.

    It was good for a month and got stuck up for a second failure.

    I checked the fuses and just tried replacing the drivers power window switch panel and still no luck with the window operating.

    The rear passenger switch will go down but not back up. So right now the windows is about an inch down.

    Any good further troubleshooting ideas to share? Thanks.

    The rear door switch panels are the same. Swap them and see what happens.

    Seen corossion on those rear switches plenty of times. Like above said, swap the switches side to side and see what happens. Next time try that first

    Also check for corossion on the connector

    After giving the switch hell it went back up, but now stopped operating again. Thanks, will try the switch swap this weekend.

    In the meantime have someone engage the rear switch to go up while doing the same at the driver switch.
    Had this happen a few times on my 2007 taco and that got the window back up.

    swapped the rear door window switches and all switches are now working. Go Figure! You would think on a tough truck like this the switches would not be so unreliable for such a critical component of the truck. Going to take them all apart and clean the contacts except for the drivers door which is brand new. Thanks for everyones help, all the suggestions couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you.
