Electric window fault on 2005 rav 4

Good morning everyone

I have just bought an old 2005 rav4  3 door as a cheap runner for my work. The problem i have is that the driver window works fine going down.but when trying to put it up. it goes all the way to the top then returns back to half open. if you tap the switch several times it goes up bit by bit till its fully closed. Not a major problem but it is a pain in the neck.  also the passenger window will not work at all. I will have a look at that this morning but i presume its the switch. anyone got any ideas.

Thanks

Iain

This is probably an age-related fault in the window regulator (the assembly which moves the window).  You could disassemble and look for something obvious, or just fit another.  There's a new one on EBay for £59.90.  Used are about half that.  Considering the work to fit, I'd go for new.

That sounds like an anti-trap mechanism activating ... ? I don't know whether such was fitted to a 2005 RAV4 but it's a thought ...

I have no idea what i have done but, tried the reset several times with no luck had the switches both out. Then i decided to try and get new switches . Thought give it one more try and for some reason everything working fine now. must have been a gremlin. Thanks for your thoughts i think you are on the right track. Just have to wait and see if it happens again. 

Cheers 

Iain

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
