I have a 1990 LS400 and the rear power window seems to have a problem. It occationally works, but most of the time not. When it works, both switches (driver control and rear passanger) function well. When it doesn't work, both fail. I slightly opened it this morning, and it stops working. Now I have a LS400 without fully closed window. What seems to be the problem?? Do I need a new motor?? All those great handy guys, please help!!!

Also the LCD for the temp and clock is not working (can't see the display clearly, though from certain angle you can see the temp move up or down). Is it just a bulb or whole LCD is no use?

Thanks for all those who reposnd!!

It sounds like you have a faulty window motor. If the switches are working it just points in that direction. One problem I do see sometimes is that the window gets stuck in the down position. What happens is it comes out of adjustment and gets stuck on the track guied on the way up. To fix it adjust the 2 10mm bolts the hold the window to the regulator so that the window sits higher on the regulator. As for the window motor.........
wait till you hear what it cost!
