Rear driver side window won’t roll up but will roll down.. help!!

Asked by HTSCHAO Oct 09, 2017 at 11:25 AM about the 1996 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello! I have a 96 Honda Civic LX 4 door and my
passenger rear driver side window is not rolling up.
Replaced switch, window motor and master switch and
Still no luck. The master switch does not work rolling up
or down for the rear driver side but it works for everything
else. I thought this was the problem so I bought a new
master switch and same results. However the rear driver
side switch only works when rolling down, not up. So I
decided to try to hard wire/bypass the switch to roll the
window back up (jumped using two wires in the rear driver
side switch harness) and it rolled up! But this is a new
switch and I tested it on the other side and works both
rolling up and down. Now I’m really clueless as to what is
the problem... I was thinking maybe a wiring problem?
Ground? It was working perfectly fine before I jacked up
the car to do an oil change! Please help!! Fuse is good
also.

I would try following the wire(s) for the switch down through the door grommet to see if there are any defects. Check all contacts in the switch panel. Something needs to be not connected correctly from the switch to the motor because the reverse direction "up" isn't engaging properly.

Hope it would help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFuoiaWgvc4

I have absolutely the same problem with honda civic 2004. Rear right door window goes down but not up. Changing the motor didn't help, changing the door switch didn't help, changing master (driver door) switch didn't help either. I don't know what else to do. Any help?
