Slightly off-topic, but we've owned 3 TL's and a TSX. Honda implements the lockout switch in a ridiculous manner. When you enable the lock function, it even disables all the switches from the driver console -- stupid! The driver is always supposed to be able to control all windows. The idea of the lockout switch is to prevent passengers from "playing" with the windows.
OP -- are you sure you are testing correctly? Is the ignition on, LED lit in the lockout switch, doors closed, you're sitting at a passenger position and attempt to open or close your window? I have a hard time believing the switch is not operating correctly. Maybe it only works when the driver is present in the driver's seat -- who knows? Try it with another person sitting in a passenger position. With all the safety overrides in our cars, maybe if the driver isn't there, the system allows passengers to open their windows even in a lockout situation for a safety reason (they HAVE TO get out???)
