Had a flat battery last night, so had to replace it this morning.

After connecting the new battery I recoded the radio, but none of the passenger windows could not be operated from the drivers controls, however, each window could be operated from its own switch.

After much hair pulling it was discovered that the solution was to lower each window, then raise it and hold the switch in the up position for 6 seconds.

Apparently each window has a travel sensor built into it and when the power was lost, the window system needs to be reset so the travel sensors can work.

If you have a Prado and loose power, best remember this procedure

Cheers,

Cruiser

Hi Cruiser,
I have come across this problem before,
the procedure is outlined in the owners manual.
Thanks for the heads up,

Hi Cruiser

power each window down and hold button down for a couple of seconds then back up and do same, then should work ok some times I have to do a window twice.
