Either that or definately a wiring issue. I had JDMXTAI drop by the shop not too long ago with the same issue, except on his 96-up civic. We found the issue was faulty wiring right where the harness meets the door. His issue was a bit worst then yours, 95TOPLESS, his didn't let the window roll up (only on certain occassions), no audio or door locks etc.

Double check all wiring going to the door and if need to, try checking voltage going into the motor. If there is no voltage then you know it is wiring but if there is, might just be the motor starting to go bad. Other way to check is to have a motor off another buddies car and just hook it up, if it works then you definately know it is the motor.

hope ya get it fixed!!!

nope can't hear the motor. i checked the fuses and they're fine but i haven't had time to do anything else really. it just sucks 'cause i live on gravel so the dust gets in no matter how slow i go. haha last night i duct taped plastic all over the windows.

You could also use a small test light, you just gotta see if the wires are getting power to them.
