Sense only one window isn't working most likely you have a motor problem. I my self don't like to change just a motor. I always get the complete regulator with motor (if avaible). If the motor has failed then most likely the regulator is binding up and/or broken making the motor work harder causing the failure. So the new motor may fix it but fail just after a short time due to the same problem.

It only calls for 1.1 hours to replace your regulator. Ofcorse a shop is going to charge around $99 ($90hr labor rate) for labor. Your part from a parts store cost about $110. The shop will charge you around $220 Just depends on what they pay for it and what % they mark up parts. You can buy the part on-line for $51.02 This would be ok if you could install it.

There are also wires that could break and a switch that could be bad. It's always best to have a professional troubleshoot & repair the problem. This may be expensive at first but could save money by preventing replaceing parts that are not needed.

Electric window buttons not working

either your motor or the regulator needs to be replaced which means taking the door panel off. I would replace the motor if it doesnt work on either driver or passenger controls and the regulator if it doesnt work on just the one side. I hope that helps you out.

1996 honda civic lx passanger power window problem

I had this problem as well as 33 others I've spoken to online. The main floor harness runs thru the drivers side front fender and plugs into the drivers door. The harness in 1996 civics are an inch or 2 too short so after a few years a few of the 25 thru 27 wires in the plug #C556 either break off or pull out of the plug. Since the drivers door contains the master power window and lock switches and the power mirrors can also be affected it can seem like everyones problems are in different parts of the car but they are all part of the same default. So I went to ebay and purchased a floor harness with full power options and installed it myself. Until my part came in I just went to a junk yard and cut off a good plug then spliced it into my existing floor harness. Hope this helps. It took me 4 months to figure this problem out!!!
