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.

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.

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.

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?

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

Passenger Power window works when it wants to. Checked wiring, found a break between drivers door and body. Put a wire splice on it, works great now

Drivers side window action would be delayed. Once started it would feel "strained", the colder the slower. Window would not operate at all under 50F. 2nd year after symptoms it would work only in extreme heat before one last time opening and dying. When panel was removed to manualy push up the window, switch was removed & examed. Each switch on the board is differet type for all 4 buttons\rockers. Since the other 3 butons work great I think maybe they put it out there with 4 types to see which lasted the longest and use that in the next model change. Should have been recalled.
