Driver's side window will not go up or down. Not a motor or regulator problem, no noise. It failed before but would work after 3 or 4 pushes of the switch, now doesn not work at all.
My rear passenger window has stopped mid way. Will not go up or down.
drivers window goes down but not up.
Rear power windows stopped working (fortunately in the closed position) bothw within two weeks of each other. I haven't had it repaired
Driver side, passenger window switch failed.
rear driver's side window stuck in down position.
Same problem with my two rear windows working intermittenly. Honda said a new motor for one is over $500/plus labor. Too expensive for me. Could this be a fuse?
passenger window switch located at driver's side doesn't make it work. it has to be operated from the swith located at that passenger's side only.
Suddenly passenger side power window stopped working. Neither swith works, but driver side window is fine. Going to get it fixed tomorrow after more than 2 weeks.
Passenger side windows not working
window would not raise for many days, then one day, I flipped the switch again and. it worked.
Purchased vehicle with this problem. Both front and rear windows will not operate. I am missing the rear control switch. Could this be my problem? If not please give me some ideas.
The power windows, except for driver's all failed & when I replaced fuse, it blew immediately.
Passenger front window was slow then stopped moving. I had replaced the motor in the driver front window 9 months earlier, but this window is in a door that was replaced with a used door after an accident. The insurance agreed to replace the motor, but after the replacement any attempt to use the window would cause a fuse to blow. The Body Shop said they were not qualified to figure out the electrical problem and sent me back to my Dealer service Shop. Dealer says it is a Master Switch - cost $326. Wish I knew whether this was accident related and why it is happening. I saw a recall on the CRV that looks like the same part.
Back window rolls down but won't roll up . happened today
Hit the power window button one time and the window goes up and back down again. It does not stay up unless you hold the button up until the window actually closes.
My driver side window don't want to go down or up it was working before now it don't want to work what I can u do
driver side window stuck, was told by dealer it was the switch 2 years ago when they got it unstuck and working...i replaced switch myself this time and it is still stuck.
Would get stuck about half way up, could pull up while holding the automatic window button up for a couple trys. If pulling up wouldn't work, restarting my car and pulling up would get the window to go up. The last time it worked only after restarting my car multiple times, and after multiple attempts trying to pull the window up. Now I avoid using until I'm able to get it fixed.
The back left-hand side glass won't roll up
