The toggle for the electric window in my 2003 Toyota Matrix seemed stuck, as if it had moved out of position. With gentle movement, it yielded and is back in position. It succeeded in pulling the window down/up/down, then died. It toggles in a rather odd way, but no longer opens nor closes the window. As luck would have it, it's the driver side window (the three other windows have two switches each).
I need to park outside. How can I override the switch to close the window until I head to a garage, without risking it gets flooded, or worse? The two connectors must wind their way somewhere. Is that a standard place that I can reach to make an alternative closing for the circuit? The motor is just fine, and with ignition turned midway, the ceiling light dims when I close any of the three windows while they're already closed (indicating that extra power flows to the window motors). But the switch in question does not dim the ceiling light, indicating that it is merely an electric circuit closure issue.
