Electric windows dont move up or down on my honda accord


If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.

Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.

To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--

1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
2)
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.

5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.

I want to remove passenger side rear door panel because window is down and won't stay up


Hi,
Hi!!

Here is a little information on how window regulator works. Also step by step instruccions on how to remove and install the window glass.

Door Glass & Regulator Power Windows
Diagnosis & Testing
When the rear window lockout feature is enabled, the circuit is open and no voltage is supplied to the rear window switches. When the feature is not enabled, the circuit is connected to battery positive voltage. If this circuit is shorted to ground when the lockout feature is not enabled, the PWR WDO circuit breaker may cycle continuously OFF/ON until, either the lockout switch is pressed to open the circuit, or the circuit breaker is permanently damaged. All windows may be partially or totally inoperative while the fault is present.
Inspect for aftermarket devices which could affect the operation of the system. Inspect the easily accessible or visible system components for obvious damage or conditions which could cause the symptom. Faulty electrical connections or wiring may be the cause of intermittent conditions.
Removal & Installation
Window Motor & Regulator
  1. Position window approximately half way down in the door.
  2. Remove the interior trim panel.
  3. Remove the water deflector.
  4. Tape the window to door frame to prevent it from moving.
  5. Remove the three front door window regulator motor screws.
  6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the window regulator motor.
  7. Remove front side door window regulator motor.
  8. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Window Switch
Front
  1. Remove the front door pull cup screws and pull cup from the front door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the front door power window control switch.
  3. Remove the front door window control switch using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Rear
  1. Remove the rear door pull cup from the rear door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the power window control switch.
  3. Remove the rear door window control switch from the pull cup using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the power window control switch to release the power window control switch retainer.
  4. Remove the power window control switch from the rear door pull cup.
  5. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Window off track


Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.

Window &lock


The switch plug(s) are either unplugged behind the door panel, or there is a broken/pinched wire in the covered bundle that winds into door from B-pillar (in space where hinge lives, viewed with door open.) If all other doors are working, you are unplugged or have a wire fault since these are two seperate switches. window and lock.

Power window problem


First check the power window fuse,
1. Remove the door panel for the affected window.
2. Locate and remove the bolts holding the regulator to the door; it is likely you will have to manually lower the window in order to access the bolts.
3. Remove the old regulator, disconnect all wiring and check the wiring , replace the old regulator with a new one if defective.
4. Tighten the bolts holding the new regulator and reinstall the moisture barrier. Make sure all the wires are put back in the door before closing the door panel.
5. Engage the power window switch and the new regulator should work unimpeded.
