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.

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.

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.
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.
The power windows, except for driver's all failed & when I replaced fuse, it blew immediately.

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.

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.
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
