Default Honda accord power window delay problems?

I have a 2003 Honda Accord Coupe Ex and it has power (electric) front windows. The windows will not go down open for a random time (anything up to 4 minutes) after starting the car. Then they work fine. The fault is present regardless of which switch I try to use (driver or passenger) I have replaced passenger side switch. If I wait long enough it works (so far). After turning ignition off and removing the key, the windows still work until a door is opened (as you would expect). If I immediately restart the car I can also use them but the issue seems to present when the car has been left for a few hours (or more). Any pointers or indications on how the system works and what might be going wrong would be welcome.

Ive read that it could be a relay if so where can I find the relay on the car?

On the Accord with the 2.4, the relay is located in the underdash fuse box. If you look at the fuse box, right above the fuse there are 4 relays. The 2nd one from the left (as you are looking at the fuse box) is for the power windows. You may have another relay next to this relay that can plug into this position to test the circuit. If the windows start working, then you know the relay is the culprit. If it still doesn't work, you have other issues.
