Passenger window gets stuck sometimes

Asked by Jun 17, 2014 at 11:36 AM about the 2004 Toyota Highlander Limited V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My passenger side window gets stuck periodically. It will roll down, but gets stuck sometimes. The driver's main control panel can't control it when it happens either. I found that if I turn my key off, then turn it back on and try it again, it will roll up about 1/2 inch at a time (same thing using driver's main panel too). I keep turning my key off and on until it's all the way up. I'm assuming if it were the switch, then the driver's control panel should be able to control it. Some days it rolls up and down just fine and I don't notice any strange motor noise. Any assistance would be appreciated.

sounds just like the problem we are having with our 05 Highlander. Too bad no one's given a solution. If you have heard the solution please share :-)

Same problem with 2005 Highlander. Was told by dealer that motor needs to be replaced at $800 per motor and three windows are the problem. Defective motor or defective sensor?

Our 2001 Highlander has the same problem with right-side windows. I won't be buying a Toyota auto again.

iT'S GOTTA' BE IN THE CHILD PROOF SWITCH IF IT'S OTHER THAN THE DRIVER'S WINDOW. PSGR PUT THE WINDOW DOWN, THEN THE WINDOW DIDN'T WANT TO GO UP. I GOT IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT AND TAPPED THE BUTTONS MADLY AND IT WENT UP PIECE BY PIECE. IT IS NOT THE MOTOR. IF IT WERE THE MOTOR IT WOULD NEITHER GO UP NOR DOWN. I WILL ASK MY DLR SVC REP WHO'S THE MOST HONEST I`VE EVER DEALT WITH, IF WE CAN WIRE AROUND THE CHILD SWITCH SINCE WE HAVE NO CHILDREN.
