Hi! If the driver's side lock is not working then you surely has a faulty door lock actuator. The door lock surely is stuck that's why its not working. You will need to replace this to resolve the problem. It is located at the back of the door fram once you removed the door trim. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Hello I have a 1997 Honda civic ex coupe manual trans, my issue is that the power lock won't work and the passenger side window doesn't work either, the only one working is the driver side power window...


Most probable cause , ,,, when you open & close the door, the wires in the rubber boot (accordian like) harness in between the door hinges, get cut and will cause alot if issues, without burning a fuse !

Why doesn't power windows on passengers side dont work


Most common is broken or nearly broken through black ground wire inside rubber boot from door to jamb. Rule this out first. If it is, repair using new #10 automotive wire. Jeeps "factory fix" was a joke. I found my drivers side repaired using there solder the wire together and shrink tube the joint. Factory wiring is too stiff and will break again. And it did, twice. New wire will be more flexible. I pulled the boot loose at both ends, and extended the wire long enough so that I was able to have the connections Inside the door and vehicle. No more broken connections! Check all wiring in the boot. I found another large wire beginning to break and did same repair. Not a hard job, just time consuming. A local( not dealership, since they cannot do non-OEM repairs) shop should take no more than 2 hours or less per door. If you plan to keep your Jeep as I do, have all doors check and repaired. Good luck

Window problem


Might want to check the doors with the problem windows for a broken wire from the door to the door jam.

The window lock switch is a single circuit to all the other windows, so if there was a problem with it, none of the window controls would work ( but the driver's side would still operate them ).

The other place to check for a broken wire is the driver's side door to a-pillar harness. The circuits for the other windows run through the driver's side switch. Could be a wire in the driver's side door harness.

The other item could be the driver's side switch, the contacts will get carbon built up on them, and the windows will not operate anymore.
This is what mine looked like when the driver's side window stopped working ( lower left hand corner of the picture is the driver's side window switch, note the carbon build up on the contacts )

I would start with checking for broken wires, by metering the window switch for power.

The back passenger's window switch should be getting power & ground on the white w/ yellow stripe wire and the tan w/ light blue stripe wire.
in the "at rest" position on the driver's side switch, these are supplying ground to the power window, and power is being applied to the other side of the motor ( depending on direction of travel ).

Door panel


Check the wires inside the rubber according between the drivers door and the pillar. you will find at least one wire broken. Grand Cherokees are notorious for this problem. At least it's easy to fix though.

Power windows, door locks and mirrors inop.


Sounds familiar - I pulled the rubber boot back and found the black wire was broken. I stripped the wires and put on a couple bullet connectors (terminators) and all is good. Just wish I would have seen this post before I took the door panel off... Oh well...
