2005 Toyota Sequoia: rear window..wiper..the window motor works…

Customer Question
I have a 2005 Toyota...
I have a 2005 Toyota Sequoia and the rear window and wiper are causing me issues. The wiper will not return to its off position and I think this is why the window will not work. I have checked all connections and know that the window motor works as for some reason got it to go down even with the wiper not in its home position. Please help.

Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your Toyota question. Most likely, the root cause of your problem here is actually the window motor. Try this, with the key on nd someone in the front of the vehicle holding the rear window switch in the up position, open and slam the rear hatch door a couple of times. See if the rear window jumps up just a bit to a fully closed position. Let me know what happens.
