1996 Civic door locks and windows Sign In

Locks: When the driver door is wide open the auto locks work, any other range of being open, nothing. I opened the panel and can hear the lock control module working when using the rocker switch - the rocker switch does have continuity for both open and close btw.
Windows: Before opening the driver door panel the passenger window worked (slowly) by both the driver and passenger rocker switch. Now neither rocker switches will open the passenger side door window.

Look and check for continuity of the wires going thru the door jam where they bend with opening and closing the door to a plug inside and wiggle test the snorkel where wires are hidden watching for continuity so quit.


If it was always out you could probably just tug on wires and one pull out.


Can be somewhat common for a driver's door used more then the others wires only bend so many times and slowly or instantly lose fine strands till they can't work.


Use proper rated wire if that is found to splice thru - decide on dealing with any rubber snorkel how to approach - pull it back or cut it open when sure as needed and doubt new is easy to find for that,

Yes, most likely a broken wire in the door jam

HT and OP - Just luck or IDK this would be the first Honda by brand to do that but common to some others? Duh - wires have to bend there so can only take so much of that - spot on with the symptoms stated, T
