Thank you so much for this post! I own a 2007 Sequoia and rear washer, defroster and power window quit working. I took it to Toyota dealership and they advised me that I needed rear window motor cost of approx. $600. While visiting Indianapolis, I took to another Toyota dealership. They too advised me that I needed rear window motor cost of $580.77. When I returned to pick up vehicle from that dealership, THEIR technician had hit a fence in my vehicle and demolished the passenger rear fender, side running board, and scraped the rear door handle. Initially tried to claim that my vehicle was already like that. They finally owned up to doing it, got me rental vehicle and repaired damage. Kept my vehicle for 8 days! After all of this, they refused to throw in repair to rear window (pictures forthcoming). After researching, I ran across this site and tried it. The windshield wiper and defroster works great! Window still not working but will finish repairs using your information. Had I seen this first, could have saved myself lots of headache. Thanks so much!!

Thanks for the post. I recently purchased a 2005 Sequoia. I followed your instructions to discover that the "brake" has been removed and the problem still exists. Here is where i am confused... When I reset the ECU by holding down the rear window button, it does turn the wiper and defrost option back on. But the window is still not operative. Plus, when I push the rear window button (after the reset) I hear a click in the back and that then causes the defrost and wiper functions to stop working. So, does the motor or ECU need to be replaced? Or both, please help. Thanks.

Well, you now know that your ECU is working and not burned out because the wiper and defrost start working again after a reset. You said that after the ECU reset when pushing the rear window down button, you can hear the ECU unit "click" and everything stops working. Are you sure that the front and rear portion of the brake are removed in addition to the two bolts and spring? If they really have been removed for sure, the window may have been wedged too tight and locked into position. Have you tried to manually lower the widow glass according to the instruction bulletin? I checked mine before closing everything back up just to make sure it moved freely. You can see how to do this on Number 11 of the Technical Bulletin. You may also want to check to make sure there is nothing that fell down between the two gears causing a wedged obstruction. If none of the above works, your problem could be that the power window regulator is bad and maybe even the motor. The Technical Bulletin Number 12 shows how to remove. You could try replacing one at a time until you find the problem. The parts can be found using Google search. Be patient. Hope this helps. Technical Bulletin PDF

IT WORKED! Thank you so much for the extra hint! I opened it all back up and followed Number 11A of the Tech Bulletin. The window was jammed. Because of the jam it was not easy getting the regulator bolts out of their holes. There was a lot of tension pulling it down. Once I got the regulator free from the door frame, I then had to power the window down. This gave me room to put the regulator back in place without the tension. Everything is put back together and working great! Again... thanks!

I have had the same problem but only with the rear window not rolling down. I can push the button or use the key and hear the motor but nothing happens. Can't wait to try your instructions this weekend and see if I can get it working. Thank you for your post. Other than that, I love my car and will drive it til it dies....

Ok, I read where several of you have said you reset the ECU. I can't find the post on how to do it. Help.
