Honda Civic passenger window goes down but not up

Asked by Jun 08, 2016 at 08:18 PM about the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Honda Civic. The passenger window
and rear passenger window will go down with out
any issues but will not go up. I hat hit the door
panel a couple times and it will go up without any
issues. If I hit the up switch 20+ times it will
eventually go up without any issues. The lights do
dim at times when trying to put them up. Any
suggestions? Switch/regulator?

Remove the door panel and inspect the wiring harness connectors and switch. LOOK, at the regular too.

Window lift motor is going out, down is easy, little load on the motor but up is another story, it's fighting gravity as well as the internal clockspring that keeps tension on everything.

If it works sometimes and not other times, It must be an electrical connection issue. Could be a loose connector OR a pin fit issue inside the connector. There are a lot of connections between the WIndow switch and window motor because it is controlled by the Drivers side main switch. Check to see if it works from one switch and not the other?..

It doesn't work from the drivers side door as well. I can put it down from that switch but not up :( I was hoping it wouldn't be a wiring issue. I read others where they said to change the switch on the drivers side door.
