Did a search and can't find. I am looking to see if someone has successfully installed power winows/locks on an DX/VX/CX EG. I have a 93 DX and I want to install it. From a couple of searches, I have found people who say, allyou need to do is get this and get that but yet to find someone who has actually accompolished this. Just bought the EG so I am new to the forum. If someone has done this, please post pics of a finished product and please let me know how you accomplished it.

Most likely the problem is the switch.
Honda/Acura use a polarity reversing ground at rest power window system, same as the door locks.
When not rolling the windows, [at rest] both the leads going to the window motor are grounds, when the switch is pressed for up or down the ground is "lifted" off one of the leads and 12V+ is supplied, window rolls in one direction, when switch is rocked in the other direction the ground is "lifted" from the other lead and 12V+ is supplied to it, polarity reversing.
A simple test is to connect a 12V test light to the motor leads red/blue and red/yellow drivers side and blue/yellow and blue/green pass. side, [from drivers switch] it is blue/white and blue/red for pass. side at pass. switch, it does not matter which way test light is connected, test light should light up when switch is rocked in either direction.
You can also unplug the switch and supply 12V+ and a ground directly to the motors leads to roll the windows up or down.
If the windows move in one direction the problem is not the motors it is the wiring or lack of a ground or power because of the switch.
