    Power Window Problem

    Hey Everyone..

    Alright, so I have power windows, but only the driver side works -- but whenever it goes up or down, it seems like it is having trouble. I checked the fuses and power window relay, and those are all fine.. someone at Advance Auto said that his guess without looking at it would be that the window motors are shot.
    Does anyone else have an opinion? I want to get these fixed but I'd like to be able to tell the person what is wrong with it so that I don't have to pay them for diagnosing the problem.. thanks!!

    Is it struggling because its stuck or is it struggling due to lack of power?

    This is a problem that has, or will plague all g5 accords at some point or another. My windows have been slow moving for years now, luckily for me it rains 90% of the time in Portland, so they dont go down much.

    I've heard it has something to do with bad parts decision on Honda's end, but I dont think there is really much to do to solve it other than to replace the window motor.

    I have noticed that with my windows, that they seem to go up unevenly, and if I put my finger on the top of the higher end and level it out by pushing down, it seems go to up easier.

    Im sure that if you do a forum search, that you will find many more threads that deal with this same problem.

    In my original post I had stated that I checked the fuses and relay, which are all fine.. actually I put a new relay in.. waste of $30..

    Do you know how much window motors generally cost? and will I need to get all of them replaced then? .. it's just turned spring here and the nicer weather is starting to show, so I've had my window down, I'd at least like the passenger side to work, I dont care if the back windows work, hardly anyone sits back there and I don't like my other Accords back windows down.. just looks silly.
