I have a power window issue with my 2002 civic with about 120K miles on it. this has happened intermittently over the last 2-3 years but now it’s not fixing itself so i need help.
The other day, I had opened all the windows while driving. When I got to my destination and wanted to put them all back up, the driver’s side rear window did not go up. Neither the driver’s seat/master switch nor the rear door switch did anything. No noise from the window at all when activating either switch. I checked the power window relay fuse under the dash and it is fine. If I try to pull the window up, that doesn’t work either.
In the past when this has happened, I typically would just pray for dry weather and wait a few days, and it would eventually work again on its own. I seem to recall that shutting the rear or driver’s door a few times might have helped a little too. I have a vague memory from a few years ago that it may have also happened (the same exact problem) with the passenger side rear window, but i can’t be 100% in my recollection of that.
I don’t drive the car a lot, but i’d like to not have a sheet of plastic taped around the window, it looks pretty junky. I don’t really need the rear window to be fully functional (though that would be great) - i would be content to get it into the up position and then never open it again.
I am fairly technically adept though i have no formal training in car repair or electrical work. Any advise you may have will be appreciated.
