Have 2005 Odyssey that the drivers side window works

Have 2005 Odyssey that...

Have 2005 Odyssey that the drivers side window works intermittently. It always goes down, but there are times when it is lowered, it will not go back up.

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

I am looking to fix it myself. I have tried a "reset" of the window as described on the internet - but that's as far as I got.

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

That's it.

Hello, and thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will do all I can to help.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

when it doesn't go back up, have you tried quickly flicking the switch from the neutral position to the up position numerous times, usually when this happens that the window works one way and doesn't work the other way it's the switch itself and not the motor or regulator.

I have tried flicking the switch a number of times. That's usually how I get it to go back up.
So - it's the switch I need to replace?

If flicking the switch eventually gets it back up then yes, I would say you need to replace the switch as the contacts are likely worn and failing inside of it.

Thanks.

Absolutely, thank you, check out this video on cleaning the contacts, if you want to attempt that it may work for a while. cleaning the contacts with alcohol could help. Thank you!

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
