    A quick update: As my car battery was replaced, so I noticed that my front door passenger side window is not coming down through the control on the driver side door. So I call the dealership again and went back to them. While I was in my car, the tech just took window down manually and pressed the button on passenger side window down for 30 secs and then again up for 30 sec. This fixed my up and down issue of the window.

    Yeah Owners Manual likely explains it (somewhere in the 700 or so pages). The drill is something like:

    Run window down, then back up, holding button up steadily, and continue to hold button up after window reaches top, for at least a couple more seconds.

    My car has the same issue after being delivered from Toyota.
    It shows as an error code on the OBD readout, as well as a constant error/warning message when I shut down car and open the doors.
    Pretty annoying.

    I would assume that correcting it should be as simple as that... But I want to nag the dealer about it, it's just such a stupid thing, to deliver a car like this...?!??!!

    What's the code? I'd speculate the window issue is unrelated; it can be cured as described above.

    My car was also delivered with the same problem of the same passenger side window not going down. By that time I was already 70 miles away from the dealer, so I called them, they said just take it to any Toyota dealership and they will fix it. The next day I went to another dealership and the issue was resolved. Now I know that every time the car is re-initialized, this window problem will pop up and how to fix it.

    It sounds like it will need recalibrating if the battery is reconnected while the window down part way. It's not uncommon for mechanized devices to need a way to tell when they have moved to the limit of their travel. The old fashioned way to do it is a switch that is activated when the window touches it. The modern way to do it is to move the window it hits the stop. That makes the motor demand more power as it stalls. Then it's a simple matter of timing when raising / lowering the window.

    I really prefer the old fashioned way of using physical switches. :)

    Dealerships should be on the ball enough, to use a memory saver, retain settings like this?

    When doing battery swaps, I’ll use these:

    I got fed up with the error message and did the procedure today. Works perfectly.

    How can a dealer, especially as its clearly a known and recurrent fault, send out a car like this, with something that is so simple to solve, yet looks so bad to a customer?


    Reminds me of a HR course I had at a company I worked out, called "coffee stains"... We should always look at even the small details, because - if you're at a restaurant, and your table cloth has coffee stains, you'll immediately wonder... Wow, I wonder how's the kitchen like!?
