    Im driving home tonight and none of my four windows would go down. I tried from the other doors and they work. So I know its just my master switch, BUT my locks and mirrors work. Why dont my windows go down? Possible fuse?

    might be the switch is bad or the plug might be lose inside the door pull the switch plate off and test the switch for continuity to see if its bad

    a google search didn't yield anything but on Lexus we have to reinitialize the windows and sunroof a lot of the time after batteries die. When it needs that they work from the door but not the master switch although the drivers always works from the master. Just to rule a quick fix out, have the truck on, go to a door that isn't working and hold the window button down for 10 seconds and then immediately hold the button up for 10 seconds and try it from the master

    That's strange, it's usually the up (on the driver's side) that sees intermittent hesitations.

    This suggestion is based on that above ^

    But take the master switch assembly out, takes all but 10 mins and a couple of screws, and clean the contacts with electrical cleaner.

    My driver's side window would be truly hit or miss going back up (I use the auto down most of the time) and it would go up, stop, go up a little more then stop, etc.

    It's because the contacts were so dirty. It's an easy place to start. Plus when you have the assembly out you can further examine it.

    The driver's side window's switches are those long fins (covered in black) that are activated by the plungers on the left side in the first photo. The passenger side window's switches are those rockers on the right.
