Question about 1997 Honda Accord

97 Accord drivers side window won't go up or down....

I have a 97 Honda Accord with power windows / locks. One day after many months of my driver's side window going slower & slower on it's climb back up, it just decided that it wouldn't roll up any more. It rolled down just fine, and I never noticed any vibrations or weird noises. It was half way down at that point, and eventually it got rolled all the way down.

In the past I had noticed it had gotten off track and was trying to roll up outside the beading on the outside of the window, I was able to get it back on track and it improved for a while.

Then this happened & after a particularly rainy drive home, I took it to a shop and they rolled the window back up. They said it worked just fine when they applied power directly to the wiring. So that told me I needed a new master switch assembly.

I purchased the new master switch assembly online. Got the new switch, pulled the old one (man was it dirty!), installed the new one, plugged all the wires back in, put the door panel back on, turned the car on, pressed the button to roll it down and nothing. The driver's side window won't budge. No sounds, nothing, just the clicking of the new switch.

It did fix my problem of not being able to roll up the back passenger window from the master switch. But I really needed the drivers side window to operate so I can get the car inspected.

I checked all the fuses, wire connections and the relay must be good otherwise none of the other windows would work. Since the motor worked before and hasn't been used in over 6 months I'm guessing the motor is still fine.

So this is my stop before going back to that shop & seeing if they can remember what the hell they did to my window to keep it from rolling down... Help!!

Window motors & regulators go bad every day. Pull your door panel, unplug the motor, if you have an ohm meter apply the leads to the leads into the motor. One will be ground the other two will raise and lower (reverse) the motor. If you show resistance between the leads the motor windings are good and the problem may be the window regulator. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can run two wires (one ground, the other hot) and test the motor by applying elec to it.

Passanger window stopped in the up position, a month later the driver window did the same thing. Today I shut the door and driver window went down and now stuck. Switch or moters?


I would say switch. How about the passenger side window switch itself?
I have an 05 Accord coupe and so far so good, but for what it's worth my
son's Mazda 3 driver side window was stalling now and then and I was
actually able to clean the switch contacts with alcohol. Heard Honda
sometimes has trouble addressing window problems, so there may be
other components involved here.

Power window on a 97 honda accord wont go up


possibly your power window regulator is out. basically check the fuses first to make sure you have not blown that, if it is good, then you can order a new window regulator from the dealer or online @ autopartswarehouse.com. to replace the window regulator you will need to will need to remove the door panel, start with the screws on the handle and the arm rest, covered with a plastic cap. the door panel which can be pryed from the bottom with a flat blade screw driver or flat pry bar, it will make a snapping sound. three bolts on the regulator 4 bolts on the window tracks and 2 bolts securing the window, re assemble as you have taken apart, Good Luck!!
