Left rear power window 2005 Honda Civic goes down but not…

Left rear power window...

Left rear power window 2005 Honda Civic goes down but not up, jumpered the motor and went up ok. Drivers switch and left rear switches do not go up. replaced both, still does not go up. Up grounding must be faulty, is there a breaker on the motor that could cause that?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses?

Yes, window goes down but not back up. All other windows work

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, removed door panel, jumpered the motor to move the window up. It did. motor OK but no up circuit.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Already replaced drivers control panel switch and the rear left switch

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

Do you have a volt/ohm meter so we can do some testing?

I will pull door trim off tomorrow and check for power to the door switch and motor, and raise the window back up by jumpering the motor, as before.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
i will do this tomorrow and may call back then Chris, depending on what I find with my multimeter testing

Here are the wire diagram for this model https://www.dropbox.com/s/tq4wiq16fc79mtb/civicwin.pdf?dl=0

We need to make sure the main switch is sending out ground on the brown and brown/white wires to the left rear switch when neither are being used. If so then see which is not grounded at the LR switch, most likely it is a broken wire in the harness in one of the door jams.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
