Thsi is exactly how I solved my problem about 2 yrs. ago. As mentioned the only problem is that your window lock switch is permanantly set to off - so you won't be able to disable the other three windows.Jetdoc said:This is the way I fixed/corrected mine. disassembled the pwr window assembly. soldered a
small wire between the contacts of the on/off switch. No wire cutting needed. Saved the $250 for new control panel but have to put up with kids playing with windows sometimes because I cant turn them off.
that sounds like a great way to do it and save a lot of money, probably would have tried that if i had known...but luckily I was able to get a hookup from a local Honda dealership because one of the mechanics owned a Legend he had wrecked so he had his own spare parts, and he replaced the like new master window control panel, parts and labor total for $125 (and it works perfect now)...so I feel I got a pretty decent deal...compared to when I walked out of the Acura dealership after they told me $300 just for the part itself!KNLNGUS said:I fabricated a cylinder from a gallon paint can metal handle and fixed the switch myself using Spiff's suggestion. I altered his repair method by burning a hole into the switch housing, through the on/off switch and then through the switch housing and then securing the two with a piece of paperclip.
