Power Windows not working

Asked by Jan 31, 2016 at 08:19 PM about the 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My power windows do not work anymore but everything else does door locks, radio etc. I was told I would need to replace the whole fuse box. Is there anyway to fix this without having to spend $500+?

Is it just the driver's door panel that won't open the windows or any controls from any of the doors? Sometimes the wiring can get cracked or stretched that passes through the rubber grommet and into the sides of the dashboard area. These connections should be inspected and greased. If any wire is exposed this can cause a short in the system and the fuse can blow continuously even after being changed numerous times. If the only way is to replace the fuse box which can also be called a body control module (bcm) then look into a salvage yard or online for something cheaper with a warranty.

You need to check/inspect the wiring from the window control switch (on the door panel to the window motor which is behind the door panel. Also any wiring that passes through the door into the dash. It could be many things but you need to start at the source. take baby steps to figure it out.
