The rear power window of the first generation 4runners seem plagued with problems. I disassembled my rear window as per the instructions in the FSM to fix the defroster wiring. I then attempted to reassemble it. I have it back together (once again as per the FSM instructions) but now it isn't working. I had the tailgate down when I reassembled it, and the reassembly instructions called for the regulator arms to be in the horizontal (halfway down) position. I stuck a screwdriver in the tailgate lock so it would think it was closed and tried to roll the window up. I heard the relay clicking but nothing happened. I neglected to hook up the wires that go to the rear gate keyed lock. Would having these wires unhooked make a difference? Someone really needs to do a comprehensive FAQ for these tailgates (4crawler has the best one I have seen, but it's not TOTALLY comprehensive). Thanks for any help with this problem.
