This happened to me after disconnecting battery, panicked a bit. Raised and lowered each window individually a few times, and it fixed itself. Not sure what is the combination that did the trick.

Turn the ignition on first. Like Jose said, from each door lower the window then raise it. Repeat this twice and you will be all set

Go to the LR door and lower the window all the way and then raise it all the way. Do it twice and then check the automatic function from the switch in the LR door. When the auto function is initialized the LR window should now work from the drivers master switch. Repeat for 3 other windows.

Fully lower and raise the windows until the indicators become solid (not flashing), you will regain the control from driver window control panel.

Same here - replaced dead battery - all windows stopped working but the driver's one. Turn ignition ON - no need to turn the engine on. One time full down and full up was enough for each window (from its own door control) but the driver's one. Had to do the driver's window down/up several times to get the button green LED to stop blinking and regain full auto function.

I followed a combination of instructions from this site. I opened and closed each window individually, leaving the driver's window open while doing the others. I then closed and opened the driver's window again and voila, the central control worked. Thank you all....as I was dreading another trip to the dealership!!!

I immediately was able to open/close the LR and RR windows from the FL (master) control after completing the instructions above. However, I still have been unable to get the FR (passenger) window to open/close from the master control after several attempts at going through the entire process :( 2006 IS350

UPDATE: I got instructions from here and it worked like a charm. None of my button/switch lights ever turned on or blinked though: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-second-generation/291026-electrical- help-windows-won-t-roll-up-after-battery-disconnect-2.html 1. Turn on ignition and open driver side front window halfway 2. close driver side front window and hold switch for 1 second 3. have a look at the other door window switches (they should be flashing) 4. repeat same procedure with other 3 window switches

Turn on the ignition, lower all the way the window you want to fix, raise all the way up, keep holding the switch until the light stay solid. Fixed!

Wohoo. I panicked we replaced our battery last night and my windows would now roll up or down from the drivers side. Followed the steps above and they are working!! :) :) Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Had the same problem, here's what worked for me. Held each individual button in the up position for 20 seconds and when released window will stay in the up position. I then let down and back up and problem solved. All working properly now.

I think all of these things work. I tried the one where the driver's door is lowered and raised, then tried each of the other doors, and they all started performing correctly. This was after the Toyota dealership replaced the battery and did not check the windows. Bob Osborne, Longview, TX

Thanks guys it worked!!! 09LEXUS RX 350 Weird but that's the trick.

It worked perfectly for me. My battery died and had it recharged. The driver side window worked but not the others. So I put the engine on, lowered raised the other windows 3 times for each window....like magic, everthing worked thereafter .Thank you guys for the advice.

2004 RX330 here. After my wife drained the battery, we lost master control from the drivers seat, we also lost the auto function on all windows. None of the ideas above worked for me. Tried the up and down 3 times, as well as the driver, passenger, passenger rear, driver rear, sunroof order thing. What fixed it for me was in the manual, roll each window down half way, then roll it up holding the up button for a second after hit hits the top. After doing this, the auto feature on all windows was fixed, and the master control started working as well.
