My 1995 Honda Accord power windows just stopped working. Drivers side is fine. It is the rear 2 windows and the front passenger side will not go up. Checked fuses they were all fine. any suggestions? Thanx Terry


It could be the motor of the power windows.

  • Troubleshoot
    • 1

      Check the fuses and switches. Your owner's manual and fuse-box cover have fuse and switch diagrams. Look for the power window relay and power window motor labels. Tug out the fuse and check it for damage. Check the switches for deterioration or abnormalities. You can get a new fuse or switch at an auto parts store or super center and easily replace it.

    • 2

      Get out your tool box if you've eliminated fuses and switches as the cause of the problem. Now you have to remove the door panel to get a better look at your window's power source. For the driver's side and passenger-side doors, remove the door pad and inner moisture barrier. Use an upholstery-removal tool to help pry the panel off. The rear windows require that you remove the two center channel screws at the top of the door frame and two lower bolts in the bottom of the door. Check under the weather stripping if those bolts aren't evident.

    • 3

      Lower the window until the glass bolts are visible. Use the 10mm socket wrench to remove the bolts in the large and smaller access holes. Standing at an angle inside the door, tip the glass gently toward the outside of the door. Pull it out and set it in a secure place.

    Inspect the Motor and Regulator
    • 1

      Access the regulator by removing the front channel and regulator mounting bolts. Older models have additional roller bolts.

    • 2

      Use a digital voltage meter to test regulator power before completely removing it. A reading of less than 12 means you have a wiring or switch problem. Recheck the fuses and switches. A reading of 12 means your wiring and switches are getting power to the motor, so the motor is inoperative for another reason.

    • 3

      Remove the motor and regulator. Wear protective gloves and keep your hands clear of the regulator gear spring. You can expect it to snap abruptly on removal.

    Install New Power Window Motor and Regulator
    • 1

      Use oil to grease the roller guides and sliding surfaces of the regulator after removing all the parts. Confirm that the breather pipe is in position to keep water out of your new motor.

    • 2

      Advance the new regulator gear with your gloved hand. Use the collar and mounting bolt to secure the new motor in place. Replace the front door run channel.

    • 3

      Slide the window glass back into the door. Advance the regulator with the power window control in the door until the glass mounting bolt holes line up with the access holes. Replace the window mounting bolts.

    • 4

      Test for smooth operation of the window. The window should move up and down easily and form a tight seal when closed. Tighten or loosen window mounting bolts as needed.

    • 5

      Replace the liner and door panel. Dispose of the dead motor.

    New power window regulator installed, now window goes up to top then comes back down half way and stops. How to adjust?


    It is important to learn how to fix a Honda Accord window if you have an older Honda Accord. Although the Honda Accord is renowned for being a durable vehicle, the electric window motor regulators in older models can wear out over time. This is noticeable when you hear sounds coming from the window when you attempt to use it but the window won't move. But don't worry, you can use these steps to fix a broken window in your Honda Accord.

    To fix a Honda Accord window, you will need:
    • A Phillips screwdriver
    • A flathead screwdriver
    • A wrench set
    • A black marker
    • Masking tape
    • A new Honda Accord electric window regulator
    1. Remove the screws securing the door panel from the inside of the vehicle. These screws are beneath the arm rest. Release the door panel by prying it away from the front of the door. Work your way back by prying off the top and sides of the panel and the back of the panel.
    2. Remove the clips holding the door panel using a flathead screwdriver to pinch them together. Remove the panel by sliding it upward and away from the door.
    3. Remove the two bolts securing the window to the regulator. Note the position where the bolts secure the windows. When you re-install the window you will need to adjust them similarly. Making a small mark on the window with a black marker is a good way to easily keep track of the correct position.
    4. Lift the window directly up and remove it from the car door. Secure it using masking tape if you prefer not to remove it completely.
    5. Remove the bolts securing the window motor and guide. Remove the window motor and guide and set them aside.
    6. Remove the regulator from the power window motor assembly. Dispose of the old regulator and install the new unit.
    7. Re-attach the window motor and guide to the door by following the removal instructions in reverse. Test the new window regulator by turning on your ignition switch and moving the window up with the electric switch.
