I am hoping someone can help me out!
I have an '03 Sequoia SR5. A few days ago the front passenger window stopped working. It was working one day and then the next it was not. It is not making any noises at all and the window switch on the passenger door is not lighting up. The odd thing is that the switch from the drivers door does not light up either. I have looked in the manual and in my Chilton's manual but cannot find a fuse for the window.
Has anyone had this issue? or have a idea of where to start to fix this?
Thanks in advance!

There won't be a fuse for just one window. According to my Haynes manual, power goes through the driver switch assy first - then to the passenger switch and then motor. It sounds like your problem is somewhere at or before the passenger switch. If the driver side switch light works and the passenger side switch light does not, I would start at the passenger switch.

Thanks the drivers side was not lighting up either. Then I got in the car today and hit the button without thinking about it and it worked. So I either have a short that is working now or....... Someone hit the window lock switch and I never though to check that because I don't ever use it and then I turned it back off?? No clue but it is working now. (I swear I am not blonde!! :) )

I've seen similar problems like this in several vehicles over the years. We all open the drivers window for so many reasons during all kinds of weather and rain can get into the drivers switches. I've been careful but still find the whole area where the switches wet in an instant. Sometimes, over time, that moisture can cause corrosion. I don't know if this model is easy or hard to get to the switches but you might look for a used switch in a junk yard. I've tried spraying old switches with electrical cleaner with mixed results. Plastics don't take to that cleaner very well. If you are lucky that window will continue to work or at least if it does fail, hopefully it will fail with the passenger window in the up position. Putting off dealing with it for another day.
