I have had a sudden failure of all electric windows other than the driver's window. Does anyone know where the fusing for the windows is located. Seems driver window may be fused separate to the others. Other than fuse gone are there any other clues on where to look for likely cause. And of course it is raining.

first of all check that there is not a switch that disables all other windows other than the driver's window...

cheers

Most vehicles that I've had to fiddle with the electric windows all the windows are powered via the drivers door, usually through the the switch that controls the drivers window and the rear ones via the switch that stops them working for kiddy use.

I agree with the others, it seems you have touched the cutout switch which controls the three other windows. On some vehicles these are marked with a cross. Yes, the other windows are all fed from the drivers combination control switch.
I have seem the weight of the loom, many wires, fracture the solder joints inside the unit at the circuit board level. The plug gets worked up and down with vibes and some of the windows won't operate. Resoldering is required.
Although this can happen it is most likely three out at once is a control/lockout switch

Has the battery been disconnected?

Hi John A12,
I just tried my 03 100 series and as the others say there is a lock button on the same panel but to the front of the controls and inboard of the door locker.

When the button is depressed it locks out all windows except the drivers window.
Ensure that this button is in the up position for all windows to be working.

If I recall correctly it is the same on the 80 series as well.

Cheers, Bruce.

Thanks to all those who lodged a reply - it was the lockout switch.

On a previous Landcruiser I had similar issues and wound up spending a couple of afternoons with wires hanging out the drivers door. I had to replace the card which made up the switch block. As usual one thinks the worst rather than look for a simple solution.
