97 Accord SE coupe, passenger window doesn't work. All fuses…

Customer Question
97 Accord SE coupe, passenger...
97 Accord SE coupe, passenger window doesn't work. All fuses intact. Regulator is fine, motor runs in both directions when voltage is applied directly. Continuity checks all the way to door hinge harness connection all good. Switch continuity in all 3
positions seems good. Voltage at hinge connection is: blue/black - hot, blue/yellow - 0, and blue/blue - 0. I suspect blue/blue should also be hot, but I can't tell what it's connected to, so I don't know where to check next for continuity or voltage. Can
you help?

Welcome to JustAnswer. My online handle is Honda-Man, I am ready to help with your Honda question. I have over 30 years experience with Honda vehicles.I have included a wiring diagram for your Accord Coupe. Make sure the ignition is ON and the drivers switch is in the normal rest position.Unplug the passengers side power window switch and check power at the blue/black. Check continuity(ground) at the blue and blue/yellow wires. If you can record the readings? I will be online for another 2-3 hours tonight. Thanks!

Blue/black: 12.19 V. Blue/yellow and blue are both 0. I checked for continuity with ground to the lighter, door, and chassis, all negative. Are these good ground references, or should I be checking something else?
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 3 years ago
By negative do you mean no continuity? Or no ground? Touching the ohmmeter probes together shows good continuity, is that the reading you got on the blue/yellow and blue? The lighter, door, etc are good grounds.

I meant no continuity was indicated. My meter has an audible continuity test feature, I used that. Resistance test yields a consistent result. Resistance between yellow or blue to any ground point is infinite.
Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 3 years ago
OK, power source is good but without a good ground the window won't work. Is the master switch set to ON? Need to ask the obvious just in case. The switch pulls the ground to disable the passenger window. If it is ON then the lack of ground needs to be found. This also rules out the passenger switch.

The switch on the driver side for the passenger window is in the neutral position. Window won't work from that switch, either, BTW
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I just realized what you were asking about. The switch that says"ON". Can't believe I never noticed that. Window works fine now. And I've been messing with this for weeks....

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
