First go on eBay and look for a window switch. I found one for about half of the price the dealer wanted. You will need a star shaped screwdriver adapter of some sort and just take two of them out inside the door handle where you grab the door to shut it. Once you get it out, just unclip the wiring clip and attach it to the new switch and put back in door.

NO DONT BUY A NEW 1 .... try this first it worked for me.. i took apart the switch panel and was gonna put the back window switch in the drivers side but i carefully took the WHOLE switch apart down to nothing. Then i bent back the contacts so they were usable again and WALLA it works great and has ben for over 3 years knock on wood

Plymount Grand Voyager 98 all lights flicker on an off automatically even when engine ignition is off Mechanic could not find anything wrong What could be the problem?

What do you mean by all lights, all lights as in dash, headlights, parking lights and such... could be a bad light switch, or relay or a burnt wire. I have a 90 Caravan, did basically the same thing, the wiring to it was over heating and it was causing the breaker in the switch to kick off till it cools down then kick back on... I then replaced switch and dimmer switch... still did it, so then I went investigating and found out that it was cause of 1 burnt wire that was good enough to cause contact but it over heated quickly, kicking the lights off, then when it cooled they came back on... It might be something simple or as a burnt wire or the switch itself... checking for a burnt wire is easiler and cheaper then replacing the switch... Hope I helped. Good Luck

You probably won't have dash lights either. The problem will probably be at the light switch. If you take out the switch, there will be a burnt wire, and the switch will have to be replaced, along with a pigtail for the burnt wire.

How do you fix a 1999 Honda CR-V driver window which does not open?

Several possibilities - but unless it's something simple, like a blown fuse, whatever the problem may be, it will have to be first accessed by removing the interior door panel to get at it. Could very well be a burnt out electric window motor, or simply the wire has come loose from the motor. No way of knowing until you get at it.

No. Window glass is nearly opaque to ultraviolet frequencies of sunlight; which are the frequencies that cause sunburn. The same applies to sunglasses.
