We have Multiplex module under dash that will cause that issue ,but we need to check few things first, have all fuse been checked ?

have you had it scanned with Honda capable scanner to retrieve ee fault codes ?

do all window do not work from master switch or just one or 2 , and do they work from individual switches

Are you looking for the most possible causes or you are repairing it yourself .

Please Let Me Know

Thank You

None of the windows work properly from any switch. Drivers window will go down a few inches. That’s why I was told to get new regulator and motor.My friend ran the codes the codes were p0171 and p0401And I’m not sure how to check fuses can they do that at autozone?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I am wanting to fix it myself if possible.
Mechanic for Honda: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 3 months ago

These faults codes tell me you have basic code reader or used a basic code reader to pull engine fault codes,the P0171 is oxygen sensor fault and the P0401 EGR fault none are related .

1- so first the scanner you have can read the modules we want in the car

2-second the driver window was it replaced ?

3- The master switch on the driver side window is the most common ,if this doesn't nit work none will

Not sure if window was replaced I bought car a little over a year ago. Windows have always been messed up. But window may have been replaced cause it makes crunching sounds if I try to roll down window.
Mechanic for Honda: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 3 months ago

The crunching sound is usulay the regulator / motor, but that does not explain the rest of the windows .

the regulator could have went bad again ,

remove master switch and wiggle the wire connector at it while pushing the window button

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

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

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
