Electric window motor seized. Those motors have internal copper brushes that usually lock after time. Some times a quik test is to get to the motor and tap it with a wrench while pressing the switch to get it unseized. ( Not a fix ! ... still needs replaced ).

I would start by locating the fuse for the power windows, if one side is working move to step 2. I have replaced window regulators on several american vehicles, the honda should be no different. Youcan order the power window regulator online on autopartswarehouse.com, or take a chance at your local junkyard. you will need to remove the door panel, start at the release mechanism inside, usually 1 screw with a small plastic cover. in addition, 1 screw in the grab area of the arm rest, also covered. at the bottom of the panel under the arm rest start to pry off the door panel, you can take it off with a flat blade screwdriver or flat pry bar. it will make a snapping sound. then proceed, there are about about 8-10 total clips. after this is done, you will need to un hook the power window and door lock connections. next remove the door light connection at the bottom of the door. remove the plastic lining as careful as possible. you will need to put this back on after you finish. usually there are three screws attached to the regulator and 4 screws, 2 on each side of the alignment tracks. in addition there are 2 screws holding the window to the brace that moves up and down. remove the window bolts first and remove the glass, then proceed with the rest of the bolts, then re assemble as you have taken apart. On the hondas I would say about 2-3 hours will be need for each window. Good Luck!!!

I have a 96 Honda Civic EX coupe. The passenger window will not go up or down from the drivers side. It will not go down from the passenger side. It is currently up. From the passenger side it will move up...


Hi Frito and Fion, Does the window work in any direction from either control. If it does that will mean the motor is undamaged. The most common problem is the switch. Get another, new or second hand and try fitting that. If the motor has burned out it will have to be replaced. Try the switches and if that fails we'll go through the bigger job together.

My 96 civic passenger side windows will not roll down but motors work


If you can hear the motor spinning and the window isn't going up or down the gears on the motor or regulator might be stripped. Some vehicles use plastic gears on the window motor making it quieter however more prone to problems like yours.

Check to see if the wires to the windows are broke in the rubber hose from the door to the body where the door pivots.
