If it's buzzing when the car is moving. it could be the wheel bearing making the buzzing sound. it needs to be replaced. you can probably hear it as being inside the hood.

Do you have headlight wipers? If so, wiggle the wiper arm and see if the buzzing stops.

You have a stuck relay. It will be in the fuse pannel under the hood. With the car off open your hood and find the fuse pannel the best way to find it is to put your finger on the relays and feel them. One will be buzzing. You will have to get another one from your parts store and replace it.

Electrically, everything is dead on the car; however, the battery is good. Some kind of relay or fuse, in a box under the hood in front of the driver, buzzes when the ignition is OFF; when ON, it quits...

when you state that when you turn key on the buzzing quits tells me its a ground problem. assuming the battery is fully charged and holds a good load. check your negative and positive cables close at the battery because the side mount battery cable ends seam to be causing a lot of problems for people. use a test light that can pierce the skin of the cable to be sure the voltage is going threw/

The fuses that are buzzing, are these the ones you replaced? Sounds like a bad connection to the fuse panel, but the ones you removed are they fuses or relays. Did you have to repair any wiring or plugs for the window? Check the connection at the main window panel, if it has a bad connection such as not plugged in completely.

computer interface.They said I need to take it to a honda dealer
so they can connect and determine what is wrong with the
Automatic breaking system. The noise is the ABS motor

Very loud Hum under driver side

There is an ABS fuse under the hood that you can take out, and the noise will quit. The noise is accually your ABS pump. They are kind of expensive.

This sounds normal. The engine cooling fan it set to contine to run after being shutoff. If you open the hood at some point and look at the layout, you will see the electric radiator fan in the front of the engine compartment, along with a note that says: caution fan may run w/o vehicle on.
