2009 Toyota Camry's Original power window master switch controlls the drivers window perfect. Why would the 2 aftermarket master switches I purchased not control the drivers window at all but the rest of the buttons work fine?
The original power window master switch wasn't controlling the passenger window very well. You had to press the button very hard to get the window to go up and down. So I purchased 2 new master switches and both of them would not control the drivers window at all. Why would the OEM switch control the drivers window perfect but the new switches wouldn't. The new switches controlled every other window perfect?
It's possible that your drivers window motor was actually the issue the whole time and not the switch. I would open up the door and put a jumper to the motor and see if it works at all now.
My drivers side window and motor works fine with the original master switch. It is the passenger window that was having issues being controlled from the master switch. This means there is no issue with my driver side motor. The problem I'm having is when I install the 2 new aftermarket master switches. The driver side window will not go up or down. It's like there's no power even making it to the drivers side window switch. All the other window, door locks and child lock switches work perfect.
Oops, I had drivers window on the brain. You may have to "normalize" your windows. Try this reset sequence in this video. See if that does the trick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=we66pU0MN1M If window still will not go down, I would push the button down and see if there is any power to the motor wires. If you have power to the motor wires, it may be a fuse or relay issue.
You might consider a Google Search concerning this issue. Toyota had to recall over 7 million vehicles for master switch issues. Sometimes....Toyota fixes things for 0.00 $$$.
About a year ago I took the car to the dealer for the faulty master switch recall. All they did was took it apart and greased it. Then they stated that it was in good working order and no longer part of the recall. I appreciate your advise but I already went this route.
Concerning those "new" master switches, NEW parts are not always good parts.....especially the after market type. You might consider a Toyota Dealer replacement part.
I could not help but notice on the TV today. Yet another Toyota recall for bad window switches. Is your vehicle one of the 6.5 million?? you might care to Google this issue. Good Luck
