es330 drivers window


Recommended Posts

my name is Bill and I recently bought a 2006 es330 Lexus.  I just spent $2000 on it to have a new timing belt , front brake discs and pads installed including a new water pump.

I love the car, it drives like new even though  there is 123000 miles on it. I have a super mechanic that has a great reputation here in fla, but he can not fix the drivers window on my car. The problem is it will only go half way up, and it stops as if it thinks there is something in the way. I know it was meant to be a safety feature, but can not find out how to cure it. All the other windows work ok from the main switch. The mechanic has spent a number of hours on it , but no luck. I bought another switch from ebay, but that was even worse, only one window worked.

Bill,

There is a reset procedure for ES330 windows after  work on a window system. Google it, and you'll find that you can do it yourself in less than a minute.

If this doesn't do the job, something is either jammed in the window glass track somewhere, or the window motor/mechanism has a broken gear, bent tooth and needs replacing. Used is the way to go.

Hi, The only procedure I have seen is to put the window half way up, the down and then raise it to the top and hold the switch in the up position for about five seconds.

This only works for the other three windows, as my drivers window will not go all the way up.

Thanks for the reply,  Bill

Bill,

Over the last 55 years I've fixed all kinds of window mechanisms in all makes of cars and antiques. Pull the door panel and the plastic weather shield and get a good look at the window mechanism as it moves. You may well see the obstruction or see where the problem is.

Google "2006 es330 power window images" and you'll see the entire sheebang. Its usually a DIY job to swap the mechanism out after the glass has been removed. Check YouTube videos for the ES330 and Camry's of that same generation. Here's one for a 2002 but yours will be similar.
