Question about 1995 Honda Accord
The window was rolled down one day, and now wont go up. the problem has been narrowed down to the switch going bad. i was wondering if there was a work around so i can get the window up for now until i can hunt down a switch. its winter and its freezing cold. so i was hoping there might be a trick for completing there circuit and having the window go up for now.
It's a simple circuit and I believe it actually runs the hot through the switch, so you could pull the door panel off, get at the two leads at the bottom of the switch and complete the circuit manually. How do you know it's a switch though? It's pretty common for the motors to go out, especially if the drain hole in the bottom of the door is plugged. Water gets in the door and shorts out or rusts the motor. The general way to remove a door panel is to get a couple really flat pry tools, like a putty knife and pry at the edges to find the clips that hold the panel on. Then using one putty knife on each side of the clip, pop them off. You can buy replacement clips from your dealer if you break any.
You might find that there is a small circuit board along with the switch, which may give credence to your "switch" theory. but you still should be able to isolate the wires for the motor.
Here's some more detailed instructions for removing the door panel .
