I put the all four windows down before driving. After I arrived at my destination, I put all four windows up, later on that day before leaving my destination, I tried to put the windows down. The only window that would go down was the driver side window. The other windows would make a clicking sound, but wouldn't go back down. This seems to be a common problem in many Honda Accord models. It would be great if the company would fix this problem, Honda owners are very loyal customers and it would be greatly appreciated by many of us. This problem makes me a little skeptical about buying another Honda.

Front passanger and back windows have stopped working. Driver side window works perfectly. I can hear a 'sound' when I try to slide down those windows, but nothing happens. When I googled about this issue, I could see many drivers using Accord 2007 facing similar issue.

Ignition allows you to remove key while still running and in gear. Went to get out of the car in a hurry and kept rolling. Jumped back in but couldn't stop before hit garage door and damaged front fender.

I have a 2007 Honda Accord the driver's side window works but other 3 windows don't. when I hit the master switch on drivers door to try to roll the other 3 windows down you can hear the switch click at the switch on the door ur trying to roll the window down but it does not move. It all started when I used my key to put all the windows down(turn key twice to left and hold) before entering the car. Then, once I began driving I decided to adjust my windows but it did not even budge, except of course for the drivers side. The night before I didn't have this problem.

I purchased/financed a used- 2007 Honda Accord on 4/2/2015. Outside of an airbag recall notice received in June, there were 4 consecutive electrical malfunctions that occurred and is currently pending - 1) rear driver-side window motor seized, 2) both keyless fobs stopped working and requires reprogramming, according to mechanic, 3) cd/aux button no longer functioning, and 4) rear driver, passenger, and front passenger-side window motors have all seized and no longer functioning. It should be noted that the salesman did not disclose physical front bumper damage on sale date, and did not offer any corrective action upon notification. Vehicle was stationary in dealership's possession over a year - from sale date. However, they (owner/salesman) guaranteed the condition of the vehicle as above standard and recommended extended warranty.

The passenger windows (1 front & 2 rear) stopped working. When they stopped working, the windows were partially down. I could not raise the windows by any usual means. All I would get is a clicking sound at the master window control and the individual respective windows controls when I tried to raise them. The only window that would operate in a normal manner was the driver's window. The driver's window would go up or down as needed without any problem. This appears to be an electrical issue that has affected many Honda models of various years, including models newer & older that my 2007 Honda Accord SE. The issue does not involve a window regulator, nor window motor. It appears to involve the master window control and/or the vehicle's ECU (electronic control unit) that is responsible for the operation of the vehicle's windows. This problem should be addressed by Honda at no charge to owners of Honda vehicles.

I bought this vehicle from a Honda dealership in the beginning of February 2015. The car had 2 or 3 previous owners who did an excellent job of keeping up with the maintenance. The car had also just been inspected in September of the previous year and passed with flying colors. I was in the process of relocating to the West coast with my fiancé. four hours away from our final destination, the car shut off and I noticed that the engine light flashed on. I quickly got the car to the side of the road before it completely died. My fiancé and I hopped out the car to check under the hood. By this time you could smell the smoke coming from under the hood, but a fire was not visible looking directly under the hood. Another driver, who happened to be a fire fighter, who was on the same highway stopped and told us to back away from the car because there was a fire underneath the car. Once we moved back, we were able to see the fire under the car on the right hand side (if you're facing the car). We could also see that the fire was melting something. You could see the substance melting to the ground. The fire fighter called the police and investigated the fire himself. He said that it was some type of wiring issue and the fire dept. Confirmed this as well when they finally disconnected the battery to inspect the car. He again stressed the fact that we needed to stay back because the car could blow at any moment, which was devastating news because everything we owned was in the car. Thankfully a police officer arrived and diffused the fire. I noticed that there are no open recalls for this vehicle, but I did notice there was an investigation for some issue that could cause a fire under the hood. I absolutely loved this car and I only had it long enough to make 1 payment to my finance company. I just wanted to bring this to your attention to prevent any other incidents.

Just bought my Accord in September 2013 with 105K miles on it.when I test drove the vehicle I noticed that the brakes were sticky.when I came to a complete stop then when I accelerated it took a second or two for the brakes to release then accelerate again. They told me that they had just replaced the brakes and that's the reason why that it was doing that.so within a month later I brought it in cause the problem never went away. They fixed the problem and just put brake fluid and bleed the brakes.the car ran a little better and the brakes weren't sticking as much.two months later I had to replace the brake pads.brakes were still sticky.3 months later I had to replace them again.then I noticed that when I would due over 60 mph that when I would press the brakes that the car would shake and pull to the left.I then got a aliment and still the car would shake when I would accelerate and brake.I then replaced all four rotors.problem stopped.two months later the cars left lower control arm was giving out.had to replace both right and left side.one month later I hear the brakes making a loud grinding noise.I had to replace the pads again.I find that every 2 to 3 months I have to replace my brakes. All this money being spent is not fair.Honda needs to recall these brake systems.my airbag light and engine light keeps coming on and off.also my stereo light goes off and on.help me please.

When I went to go turn on my car the radio went dark. I have done some online research and apparently this is a common problem for model years 2000,2001,2003,2004,2006,2007, and 2008. I also have issues with the interior ceiling light. It keeps burning out. I have also experienced my power windows go down on its own after I locked the vehicle by pressing the remote button. Occasional, when I put my key in the ignition and im about to turn on the car I hear a buzzing sound be fore it officially starts.

When I have an adult passenger sitting in my 07 Accord front passenger seat I occasionally see the passenger airbag off light lit up. The passenger is about 95 pounds and I believe it should be sufficient to keep ensure airbags are kept alive for an grown up adult. I am very concerned about this and worried that airbag may fail to deploy. I request Honda and NHTSA to consider this complaint seriously and investigate asap before it is too serious.

After a week long period of heavy rain, three out of four power window switches on the driver's side door failed. It seems like the 'master power window switch' may have shorted out. All windows except the driver's window fail to open now from any window switch in the entire car. After searching online, people report this to be a common problem in this generation of Accord (2003-2007). Honda has also recalled the Honda fit 2007-2008 for this same reason/part. www.Honda.com/newsandviews/article.aspx?id=7262-en.

My 2007 Honda Accord had starting problem, and the engine stalled when I backed up sometimes, especially when in hot condition. It will eventually started after 3 or 4 time when I tried to started. The mechanic didn't find any problem with starter or battery, but I change it anyway for my safety; the problem still there. After researched on the internet, I changed the ignition witch; the problem solved. Honda should look into this problem to prevent accidents or deaths. My car engine shut off when I backed up a few times not in forward. Hopefully it will not happen in forward condition to any drivers.

My 2007 Honda Accord has a starting problem. Initial diagnosis test leads to faulty ignition switch as the cause. The car does not start on the first attempt. It starts after turning the key for more than 5 times.

Check engine light went on and off a few times, took it to autocheck and found a code. Took it to dealer, they could not locate the code and claimed there is no issue they can find, come back when it happens again. Few weeks later, the check engine light came again in the evening, and now with other problems, the whole electric system including lights, radio etc started dancing on and off, ABS light came on and off. Happened for a few minutes and then everything went smooth. I took the car back to dealership and they claim the code P0685 was found and there was a software update for the PCM and they applied that update. I asked why was there no intimation about it and the response was that it was not considered as one of the critical updates. With the experience I had, the way things were happening in that 2-3 minutes of electric system dance, anything could have gone wrong with the car. There should be a recall notice sent for this update.

Had vehicle serviced a day later I heard a clicking noise. This noise continued. I thought it was a fuse. Then two days later the driver window will raise and lower by the master control switch. The passenger front and rear windows would not lower only click when pushing the master control switch/button. I took vehicle to Honda they said it was not under warranty but after a diagnostic fee of $59 it was working however the switch isn't grounded properly and still makes the clicking noise and won't work with the key trying to lower the windows. I then observed online that there was a recall for V6 model of 2007 Accord. Mine is a 4cyl. Honda wants about $359 for the repair. The repair is for the master control window switch.
