does your drivers switch say all auto?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Yea it does. It has the lights but I can't get it to activate to initialize. Or at least they haven't lit up when I've tried
Expert:  mike switzer replied 4 months ago.

does the drivers window work from that switch? and if it does can you try on just one window for now. the front passenger window roll it all the way up and hold the button on up for ten seconds when it gets all the way up. then do the same or it on the down hold the button down for ten seconds when it gets all the way down.

driver one works. I'll try in a bit. Just had a huge thunderstorm roll in

ok when you do this if the passenger front window now works from the drivers switch do the same to the other two it is toyotas reprogram procedure. i know you did not replace the battery recently. but it sounds like the power was lost at some point of somehow the programming was lost.

That hasn't worked either. Just made it stuck in the door for 30secs then finally came up
Expert:  mike switzer replied 4 months ago.

then if that did not work your master switch has gone bad and will need to be replaced. the master switch controls all the windows in the system and if you are un able to program any of them then the switch is bad. you will of course need to go through the programming procedure once more with the new switch.
