Sounds to me like your auto electrician is scared of ECU's
If it is as you say "BUS" controlled, I am sure it can be changed, however finding an autoelectrician with the apropriate programming knowledge, not so easy. I think its a Bosch ECU?
Just unplug the cable the goes to the switch? or when they wind the window down wind it up from the front trapping thier arm between the frame and the glass, it fecking hurts and it taught me not to arse around with the window switches in my dads car.
I'm not an automotive electrician. However I am qualified in UML, which is the language used by Honda to design and prototype the logic in their automotive electrical systems.
Assuming that Honda use push-to-make switches (not guaranteed), the easiest and most-effective option would be to disconnect the rear switches.
The window motors will be actuated (i.e. told to go up and down) depending on messages received over the bus. If there is no input, then they remain where they are. By disconnecting the rear switches you will be removing that particular input, however the system will not realise the switches have been disconnected.
So, as a first step I'd try disconnecting (AND INSULATING) the spades from the bottom of the rear-door window switches. If that works, you could wire in a remote switch to the front to switch them in and out as required.
been reading this, bought er-indoors a crv vtec ex couple of months back.Gonna have to check the windows now, sounds stupid if it switchs them all off.
Only had it a week and it broke down!
Bloody great lorry reversed into last week and stoved in the tailgate. Insurance reckon they'll supply freelander or range rover as courtesy car suppose she'll want of them now.
