    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?
