I have an 05 Honda Accord coupe. Neither window will roll down, had the relay switch replaced but 6 months later back to the same problem. Radio would go on and off, even when car was off. Now the radio will not come on at all unless I unplug/plug the battery, then the result is only temporary. Now the cruise control button will not work. If I push it down the green indicator light comes on but the button will not stay engaged. I've seen so many of the same complaints I was sure there was a recall I missed but there isn't??!!.

2003 Honda Accord. Consumer writes to report a potential fire hazard with power windows
the consumer stated the front drivers window regulator motor assembly was replaced, because it was slow to open and then became stuck in the down position. Four months later, the front passenger window would not open when the consumer tried pressing the switch from both the master control panel and the passenger arm rest. In addition, none of the windows opened from the outside of the vehicle when she pressed the unlock button on the remote transmitter and held the button down. The doors unlocked, but the windows did not go down. The front passenger regulator motor failed and in addition to a fuse blowing, the wiring in the passenger door panel burned and the vehicle's fuse box assembly was damaged. When the consumer picked the vehicle up, she was told the problem may have originated with a crack in the master control switch on the driver's panel. Two days later, after the repairs were made, when the consumer tried pressing the switch to close the window, the window rose less than an inch and immediately went down again. Also, when she wanted to open the window fully, she had to hold the control switch in the down position longer than normally required to automate the action. The consumer returned to the dealer and they replaced the run channels on both windows.

I leased a 2004 Honda Accord ex v6 in may of 2004, from rick case in miramar FL. On August 31, 2005, I had to have my o ring discharge line replaced, due to leaking power steering fluid and noise. Then, on April 3, 2006 I had to have my entire radio/cd player changed out due to led not working and both back window motors replaced due to loud noise and rolling down slowly. In July 2006, I relocated to atlanta, GA and purchased this vehicle via retail (transferred the title) in August 2007. Then, November 9, 2007, I had to have the power steering pump replaced due to leaking fluids and a loud noise. Today is August 6, 2009 and I am again having the same power steering issues!! other problems that I am currently having with my car: had to get my battery changed August 9, 2007; window motor problems with both my front seat windows; internal lights not working on transmission gear-shift, over-head light. I am so unhappy with this Honda purchase as I thought that they were known for their longevity, especially since I have been the only owner and got the car brand new. The main thing is I need answers or directions as to what my next step. Please advise, thank you. I am still making payments on this car!! updated 08/07/09.
The contact owns a 2004 Honda Accord. The contact stated the headlights would shut off while driving at night. Also, the windows malfunctioned when the failure occurred and the contact was unable to open or close the windows. The dealer informed the contact to replace the radio. A private mechanic replaced the radio and two days after the radio was replaced, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was aware of the failure but did not offer any assistance. The current mileage was 207,000 and the failure mileage was 100,000.
The window regulators and power door locks on the Honda's I own keep failing and cost more than 300 dollars to repair. This seems to be a systemic problem on the Honda's. I have had this happen on all 4 doors of my 2000 Honda Accord and 2 doors on my 2004 Honda pilot. Honda needs to do a recall and fix this issue. People shouldn't have to pay for a systemic issue in the car, which can be a safety issue as well as you can't put the windows down or up once this happens.

While getting into a 2004 Honda Accord 4door, I grasped the door frame wrapping my fingers around the top support that surrounds the window on the passenger side. Apparently the driver engaged the up button from the drivers side. This caused the passenger window to trap my fingers with great force! since then my fingers have caused me enduring pain. I feel strongly that there should be a safety contact in the weather striping to prevent anything from being exposed to this force! I found one such item patent #6337549. I had a similar idea. I think this should me required on all cars/trucks or other such device (like an advanced motor sensor).
1999 Honda Accord: driver's window. Less than 60,000 miles usually parked most of the day. Driver's window would go down but not up. Was told "due to use - window wire gears stripped.

The power windows except for the driver's side stopped working from today (oct/13/2004). Not sure how much expense involved in fixing them as I don't have extended warranty for the vehicle. Also, driver's side window too slow in movement.

Driver side power window cable snapped.
My crank shaft pulley bolt broke off damaging my whole engine. Honda estimates it will be approx. 5900. 00 to fix. This is ridiculous since my car is practically new (1999) and I get all my servicing at the dealership!.

All of the above dates and mileage are approximate. I have the information on paper at home. I have also had the hardest time with Honda financial services with them calling me and saying that I never paid my monthly bill (last fall), which I did, and then finally they found the check and said "OH, our mistake, it has been here the whole time. " and then now, I have them saying that I was in default of my lease because they never had information for my insurance, which my insurance was supposed to send them that information. I checked back with them a week later (today) and they said that they were going to impound my car because my insurance company never got back with them. Called my insurance company, and it took 5 mins. To have someone fax over proof of insurance. That was all - was it that difficult??? this car had to have the back brakes replaced after 25000 miles (about a month ago - it was making this awful noise, like rattling chains underneath) - that should not have happened. The back window tinting lifted up after 1 year, the tire blew out on the freeway 1 month after getting it (leased the car Aug 2001). The service engine light has come on twice, for no apparent reason. And the srs light was on 2 different times. Had it turned off the 1st time. Then 1 week later it was back on, brought back to my dealership and they said it was something wrong with the computer system, but they could not give me a good enough explanation. When I first was looking for a car at the dealership, this car was not on the lot where all the other cars for sale were, it was in the back, by the service department. Asked the sales rep if the car was in okay condition and he said it was, and there was nothing wrong with it because it only had 10 miles on it - I should have known then. This car is a pain in the behind and it is just a hassle for everything that keeps happening with it.
All windows when being operated either up or down continue to come off track. Dealer has replaced power window regulator but all windows have fallen off the track inside the doors. Please provide further details.
The passenger window hangs and gets stuck in the guide. I have had it fixed 3 times and now it needs a 4th fixing. The anti-lock braking system engages prematurely, making braking ineffective at highway speeds.
Automatic door locks fail to lock automatically. Consumer manually locks each door instead of one door locking all. Consumer has yet to contact dealer. Power windows inoperable,only the driver side front would work.
