Having problems with your 1997 Honda Civic ?

96 Honda Civic PASSENGER Power Window will NOT go down,Only UP.

\015 I have just come in from looking at the car again that I posted a question about last night and can add a piece to the puzzel. This 1996 Honda Civic EX 2Dr. PASSENGER WINDOW WILL NOT GO DOWN,BUT GOES UP JUST FINE. I have bought a brand new motor w/regulator and new switches for the doors on BOTH sides and today I unplugged the window motor plug and jumpered the 2 terminals with 2 wires from the battery and reversed them and the window goes up and down but when I unhook the jumper wires and put the factory plug back on,the window will go up fine but just will not go down. I checked all the wires inside the passenger door and even the connector plug that is covered with the plastic boot where they go into the black rubber boot between the body and door and all look good. I just wondered if now knowing that the window will go UP just fine and NOT down may point to something more specific. Thank You to EVERYBODY for the help and support.\015

There is also want seems to me be a default in the main wiring harness. All my windows would not go up or down. I checked the main harness it runs from your door to through the front fender. I removed the boot and there were several broken wires. Luckily I had a parts car to pull the wire harness and spliced in the newish one, and even in the parts car there were a couple of wires that were cracked, which I fixed. Now all windows work great!
Check the Power Window Relay that is located in the drivers side kick panel, not in the fuse panel. I just had a similar problem with a Civic 4dr, had power out of all the switches and the motor would work fine if I hooked up direct power, when I hooked the switch to the motor, nothing happened. I printed the wiring diagram from AutoZones help section and found the relay that operates everything for the windows.

I'm having trouble figuring out how to find a replacement switch without having to go to the dealer, any suggestions?


If your window rolled down than means your window regulator is getting power. It's most likely your switches are bad. When you use the down switch it supplies power to your window regulator. When you use the up switch it supplies powe ... 2005 Honda Civic

1995 honda passport -- my master power window switch for the passenger side shorted out -- no problem it was broken plastic in the switch that caused it -- i replaced it and i assume it works, however i was not able to figure out how to put back the red button that allows passengers to be able to roll up and down their windows -- i was going to leave it out but then i realized that may end up leaving all windows unable to go up or down -- how can i put this back together properly? thanks
