Not been in many cars? My 1991 Toyota MR2 allows you to operate the windows until you open the door. My fiance's civic is a pain just like the element. Someone find a way to fix this!
This is likely a function of the multiplex unit built into the fuse box. Since the lastest Civic came after the E it is not real surprise that the E doesnlt have this function.The Element is based loosly on some civic arcitecture, I wonder if it would be as simple as swapping a relay somewhere and adding a wire or two. Anyone have a Civic service manual????
