No power to Windows

There is a switch on the driver's side door's arm-rest with all the window buttons that locks all the windows. Could that be the problem? If that is too simple, replace the fuse.

No power to driver side window and power lock

most likely you have a short in wiring harness, best thing to do is remove drivers side kick panel that cover next to your left foot while driving you should see a group of 15 to 20 wires wraped together that goes to the drivers door. once you find this grab a test light attach to a good ground remove some of the tape so you can see the wires check to see which ones have power by poking tester into the wires, write down the color code for wires that light up, then pull the power control box and check those same color coded wire when you find the bad one you can run a new wire from where you first checked it to just before the control box you can either solder or crimps then tape it up then the rest of the harness that you opened up as well. Good Luck

92 buick power locks stopped working

On my F250 when the windows went out I had to replace the drivers side switch to get both working again. I am putting my money on the switch is bad. Some of these control panels are all wired together in one so it would make sense that your seats went out as well if all controls are on the arm rest. This on the up side is not a difficult or that expensive to fix on your own.

WHEN KEY IS TURNED ON POWER non of the window will go up. WINDOWS WILL NOT GO UP.

Make shure the button lock windows on your arm rest is not engaged,check fuse on power windows,because all windows have a seprate motor it would have to be the power to them. On the rear doors they have a child safety switch that stops the window from working!

All my power windows operate fine from the drivers side switch. None operate on there on individual switches.. What could the proble be

The simplest possibility is that you have inadvertently engaged the child-proof window-lock. This happens frequently with my rental car customers, who call complaining that their windows do not work. The button is usually on the driver side arm-rest right next to the window controls. On your car, it could be someplace else. If you cannot toggle the window lock using the button, there is a possibility that the window-lock switch itself has gone bad, and needs to be replaced.

Passenger side power window does not go down

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, 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!!!

Drivers side window control cluster

The control may have gone bad... You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then you can disconnect the controls and test them

Power windows don't work

check your driver switch's(main) window lock feature button...Possible moisture inside, stuck or electrically damaged. The entire switch will need to be replaced if this is the problem. Hopefully this helps
