2/15/2015 John's Auto RepairThe one motor operates the wipers. The window is controlled by a solenoid.
The defroster is controlled by a completely different circuit. The only thing they
have in common is they all share the same ground.
2/15/2015 JimmIf all three rear window functions are inoperative (1) power window, (2) rear window defroster, and (3) wiper/washer function; try to reset the ECU computer module.
To do this, (a) turn on the ignition key, (b) hold the power window in the UP position for 10 seconds. Note - You may hear a click in the rear door panel from the reset ECU (which is a good sign).
Turn the ignition switch off and back on again. Check to see if the rear window defogger button light now works and also the rear wiper/washer. If they do work, also try the power window, although it probably will not move because of the defective "brake" mechanism.
If all are still inoperative, try doing the reset again, but hold the power window button in the DOWN position rather than the UP position as before. (It took me several times to get this to work. Mine did reset, but the window would still not work because the technician forgot to remove the brake).
If still nothing works, the ECU computer, power window motor or both may be burned out.
elijah james - 2004 Toyota Avalon - Body & Interior - 2/13/2015mileage is 79800.I have checked the manual, which indicates how it is supposed to work.But it never has worked.This problem has never been worked on by any dealer or shop.
2/12/2015 Teddy BIf no one has ever worked on finding the problem--WHY ASK
& Now 5 years after the fact ?
If you have no wiring diagrams or skills to read them & do the required
testing then pay a shop,not a dealer unless you want to part with extra money
for no real reason
Probably a fail module for the intermittent feature
Need to see the wiring diagram to see what is
in that system so you have a place to start testing
2/13/2015 Jimm80 to 90% of the time it is the wiper motor that is causing this. Usually the park mechanism won't work either and the wipers stop where ever you shut them off at.
INSPECT WIPER INTERMITTENT OPERATION
(a) Turn the wiper switch to INT position.
(b) Turn the intermittent time control switch to FAST position.
(c) Connect the positive (+) lead from the battery to terminal
16 and the negative (-) lead to terminal 2.
(d) Connect the positive (+) lead from the voltmeter to terminal
7 and the negative (-) lead to terminal 2, check that
the meter needle indicates battery positive voltage.
(e) After connecting terminal 16 to terminal 17, connect to
terminal 2 to terminal 17, check the voltage rises from 0
volts to battery positive voltage with in the times, as
shown in the table.

MIST (w/ Mist wiper) 3 - 11 Continuity

12/17/2014 Teddy BYou NEVER give anyone cash as your did
YOU Always report ALL accidents to YOUR insurance company
DO THAT Call your company & follow the Law
You should have never admitted wrong doing by either talking or
giving money,you let the insurance companies do what you pay
How would someone here on the internet know what the damage or cost would be
CALL YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY
Maybe they got no insurance & you will be off the hook &
they can go to jail,ever think of that,they may even loose their
licence,good for them
Clman - 2004 Toyota Sienna - Body & Interior - 12/15/2014I am considering purchasing a 2004 Sienna from a private seller. Low miles, clean carfax, car looks great, everything in working order as far as I can tell. However, there are yellow, blue, red and brown (brown is cut) wires hanging under the steering wheel. Does ...
12/15/2014 Teddy BDon't know about the wires
But having once owned a trans repair shop
I would run from any van type vehicle & do your
best to never buy a vehicle with a transaxle &
NEVER a van with one
Ask if the power steering fluid was ever changed-that should be an interesting experience
Ask if the trans fluid was changed every 3 years since new-if not NEVER buy that vehicle
Ask if they ever heard of changing brake fluid every 2 years
Car Fax,Looks Good,Clean,& cut & loose wires (none of that is what I would be
looking to buy

artiss e best - 2007 Toyota Avalon - Body & Interior - 10/21/2014cant remove light assembly
10/21/2014 JimmYou will need to remove the rear seats, both lower cushion and back cushions. Then you'll need to remove quite a fair amount of rear interior trim panels in order to remove the rear package tray. Unfortunately, you have to replace this whole unit when it stops working.
Check these various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the high mount brake light from around $71.00 for your vehicle. Dorman part # 923402 or equivalent.
