    Default 02 Corolla - Passenger Power Window Failing

    hi, my wife has the 2002 Corolla S, and recently the passenger power window becomes stuck. After a while the window will eventually move up, but it seems like it could be a bad motor or electical connection.

    has anyone had a problem like this?

    Thanks

    I had the same problem and I discovererd that was a bad electical connection and the solution for me was disconect de electical plug and spray WD in the electical plug and assemble again
    for me it works
    good luck

    Hello,

    Hello, I am new here and I own a 02 corolla. I'm actually having the same problem as the topic creator. I removed the panel and actually sprayed wd40 in both plugs (the one that connects the door panel to all the wires, and the plug that has the 2 wires going to the driver window motor) with no luck. I also checked the connection on the plugs to make sure they were not bent maybe not connecting properly.

    Has anyone else run into this problem? It seems like the drivers side window runs out of power.. you almost need to let it sit around for a few mins before trying again, and at that time it only moves less than an inch. It has gotten progressively worse over the months.

    I just want to say thanks in advance, there is a lot of great info on this site

    Hi,

    I have a 98 corolla and the same is happening to the driver's front window - the one that has had the most use over 170k miles! I'll let you know what I find, but suspect loose wiring or a switch, since the motor seems strong when engaged.

    The drivers side Master Control of all windows is generally the culprit.

    It is an actual Window ECU and as a "brain" for all windows will tend to fail.
    This happens to all Toyotas with power windows.
    I wood focus on the driver door Main switch if yu can conclusively eliminate a mechanical failure being the problem with your window. I.E., bad track , motor or disconnected harness. and these are easy to figure out.

    The main Driver master switch does not come cheap! And the whole unit (all 4 Buttons )gets replaced as an assembly.

    PS, I always try to avoid open windows especially Drivers window when it is raining. Water obviously damages this component. I've seen this problem at dealers over and over for years.

    I have taken many of these switches apart. They are disposable and really cannot be repaired. And, I noticed water damage. Despite the fact that they appear to be shielded for water exposure to some degree, by design.
