Rear window malady here too. Solution was the 5 second up/down described in response by "getakey" member. THANK YOU!

Note: Had battery replacement months ago, but hadn't tried rear windows (Winter).

Saved a 50 mi RT to dealer, probably $.

Thanks! Your suggestion easily solved the problem.

Search "window reset". Something about holding the button down for 5 seconds after it goes all the way down, and then 5 secs after it goes all the way up will reset it. Other than that, there is a service manual in the garage with a Power Windows.pdf that could help you troubleshoot.

Do the windows go down if you use the rear switches?

Try resetting them. You may have locked them when trying to remove the snow

you just need to do a reset. happen before

To reset the EACH problem window, do these steps from the individual window control, NOT the driver's master control panel:

Press and hold the button to roll each problem window all the way down, then hold for 5 seconds after the window is down. Let go of the button. Press and hold the button to put the window the whole way up then hold for 5 seconds after the window is up. your windows should now be reset and can be controlled from the drivers window controls.

How do you do a reset if the window won't go down?

The OP said the window goes down at every door, just not from the drivers control. The passenger doors is where you do the reset

"when i use the back power window switches the windows go down but the driver side one won't" is the quote from the OP. I assumed that the drivers side meant left side. So the first half of the sentence says one thing that is contradicted by the second half.
Maybe an unambiguous statement is necessary to help diagnose the alluded issue?

If the rear switch can still open and close the window, but not the main switch, it means the driver's main switch is bad due to snow falling on it and killing it.

Auto down stopped working

Well...I've only had my car for about 2 months and I've already encountered a problem. My auto down seems to have stopped working. Any idea what could be causing this? I'm guessing I will have to take it to Acura but I just wanted to get some input.

Have you tried resetting the controls? There are instructions to do so on this site. Here they are:

Press and hold the button to put the window the whole way down, then hold for 5 seconds after the window is down.
Let go of the button.
Press and hold the button to put the window the whole way up then hold for 5 seconds after the window is up.

Surprisingly it started working again without the reset. It is odd but I guess I will reset it if I encounter the problem again. Thanks for the tips guys.

Power window issue

Hey guys ,
I recently noticed my rear power windows were not working from my drivers switch but when push the actual button on the rear doors it works, i thought it was a window lock issue until today when my passenger window switch also stopped working!. Now only my drivers window works out of the 4 switches on the drivers control , anyone else experienced this issue?

A thousand thanks my friend! I thought I was going to have to go to the dealer to get this fixed. I had replaced my battery, and I could not control the front passenger window of my 2007 MDX with the driver's controls, but it would operate from the passenger door. The auto-down feature for that window had also stopped working, and also I was no longer able to roll all the windows down with the remote key. I had been trying to reboot it with the driver's window switch, when the answer was to use the passenger's window switch. Now everything works!!! Thanks again, man!

I too had this problem but little did I know the act of investigating that it didn't work fixed it! LOL!

I apparently fixed it when I went to investigate why I could not roll down the passenger window but the passenger could. At first I thought it was a short. So I rolled it down ... then rolled it back up - then it worked again! Now I see why. LOL!

Would LOVE for this to work to CLOSE all windows Do any of the newer RL's, mines 08 work like this? Would be nice to open home door and close all windows before I go to bed !!!

Nope, closing doesn't work, but IIRC you can turn the key and hold in the driver door lock and it'll close them all. Just can't use the FOB.

Power windows help

So my windows been working fine until one day I go to open passenger windows with the driver controls and they don't respond, if I reach over to each individual window and push down, they will open. I check fuse box and all the related fuses and they are fine. Just wondering if anyone ran into this problem before and of there is some trick to get this working or some fuses that I don't know about...thanks

Yes this is a common issue and easy to fix. I believe you need to make the window go all the way down and hold for 10 seconds, then all the way up and hold for 10 more. Something like that anyways. You can search for "Window reset" if you don't want to rely on my shoddy memory.

-Turn the ignition switch OFF.
-Push and hold the window DOWN switch.
-Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
-Release the window DOWN switch.
5. Confirm that AUTO UP no longer works. If AUTO UP still works, go back to step 1.
6. Move the window ail the way down using the window DOWN switch.
7. Pull up and hold the window UP switch until the window is all the way up, then continue to hold the
switch for 1 second.
8. Confirm that the power window control unit is reset by using the window AUTO UP and AUTO
DOWN function.


EDIT: Reading back over this, I don't think all of these steps are necessary. IanVS is right. First try this:
1) Hold window button down until 5 seconds after the window is all the way down.
2) Hold window button up until 5 seconds after the window is all the way up.

You guys nailed it! I had tint installed for the driver and passenger front windows and the company must have run the battery all the way down during the process. When I picked up my 2008 MDX, I had to reset many of the program features.

The big problem was the passenger window wouldn't roll down from the driver position. I had no clue how to fix the problem and didn't want to deal with another auto shop or dealership. Enter AcuraZine... The knowledge of this site has made my MDX purchase much easier. I simply followed the instructions of fellow members (hold window button down for 5 seconds down and and up) and BOOM! fixed.

Thanks for the help guys.
Now if we could only find someone to start making the front lower aluminum trim for the 2007+ MDXs again.
