Power Windows and locks stop working after I found a penny in the cigarette power socket.


Asked by Ronnie Dec 22, 2012 at 09:26 PM about the 2004 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Windows dont move just make a clicking sound, locks only work if the car is running, checked all fuses from the hood the kick panel and the inline fuse to the alarm box which reminds me that the alarm doesnt respond to the key transmitter have to manuel lock and unlock with key.

well if your 12v power source isn't working you must have missed a fuse somewhere

Sorry for late reply. My son just shorted mine out. Not one but 3 fuses blew. First was a yellow 10amp found above footbrake on left. Other 2 were a yellow 10amp and a blue 15 amp on the passenger side footwell panel. After changing all 3 everything is fine.

The ones above footbreak are not easy to see, you have to crouch and look up, oddly there is no cover over them and I see no mention of that panel in owners manual. It is there though
