Help: How to remotely roll down back window on2012 4Runner SR5

Thanks in advance. I had a 3rd gen, just got rid of my 4th gen and purchased this 5th gen this week. I am really missing the feature where I can roll down the back window with the key remote. I have spent an hour or so searching and scrolling through here (including the "things you didn't know about your 4runner") to no avail. I gather that each year and trim operate differently. Anyone who can help me that knows specifically about the 2012 SR5?

I know this is a small thing, but I use that feature daily.

I donít believe you can... no idea why. You can roll the four side windows down by programming (Carista/dealer/...) with a press and hold of the remote. Otherwise you can turn the key in the rear hatch door and make magic. If you find a way to hot wire the remote fob to get the rear window down, let us know.

Hi rbpower,

If you have a "Tech-Stream" scanner cable, I'll post a link so you can customize any/ALL of the 4Runner's features! This firmware is compatible with WIN-32 and WIN-64 bit, and works with XP, WIN-7, 8, 10... not too sure about "Vista"(?)!

Here's the techstream link that will work with a $30 dollar cable:

TIS V12.30.017 - Google Drive

Just buy a MINI-VCI J2534 cable and use this firmware... It will work! 'Best to you',

~rig~

Thanks for the replies. Should I use techstream or Carista? Is there a benefit to one over the other? I am hoping for ease of use. Even still, I have not seen any posts that anyone else has done this.

I have Carista. As stated above, you can use the key fob to open the side windows, but it will not open the rear. I know of no option that will allow you to remotely open the rear hatch window.

So with the 4th gen someone spent a good amount of time coming up with a solution to roll up the back window using the key fob. Obviously we lack a rear window button on the fob. I've been thinking about whether or not this could be adapted to use the unlock signal or rewire the panic trigger signal to trigger the window signal with pac tr7. Id imagine if one was willing to use a second remote it would be really easy. But who would want to do that?


These are the two mods im looking at for inspiration.
