I have a 1992 Honda Accord that the Power window controls on the drivers door work in rolling the windows down but will not work in putting them back up. You have to go the door where the window is down to put it back up. Any suggestions?

Re: Power window controls not working
It sounds like the switch in the drivers door is no long working...Sounds like the contact points are worn out...You should be able to get the switch from a wrecker or you can change switches from the other door. The switches for that year was made by the same supplier for all the switches in that car. The handle in the door is held in by approx 3 star head screws. After you take out the screws out just grab the handle and pull it off gently with a small screw driver and switches should just pop out just make sure you disconnect the wires first. Don't pull to hard because you could tear the wires and be in worst shape then. If the drivers door handle has a plate where the switches sit you will need to access the switches from under the plate. This whole process should only take you about 1 hr to do.

Roll it down halfway and in with your hands put it back in the place Center of the rubber that wraps the window you should feel it pop or click, test rolling the window up and down if it didn't work try a few more times there's two sides that should slide into place if it doesn't work a Clip broke off the slider you need to disassemble the door find it and replace it
You have a power window relay located in the engine compartment in the very back right rear.
The window relay is the one in the very front on the inside. Sometimes there will be relay which are the same , only used for something else in the car. You can unplug it and try it in the place of the window relay. There is an integrated control module located inside on the driver's kick panel, it's the large box. But it relates to other circuits. Do not forget to check the fuses.OH! the power window switch. .The power, I believe is routed through the driver's door switch.
Good luck. Start with the fuses, then the relay, switch, connections. All the simple things first.
Does you window roll up and or down using a different window control than the one you are using now? If it does then replace the broken control panel that is malfunctioning. You also have a fuse in the panel under the dash on the drivers side that controls the windows. Check that as well. If these do not remedy the problem then you will have to remove the door panel where the malfunctioning window is at and inspect the regulator/motor. One of these three will be the solution.
you most likely have a power/ground/switch issue in the drivers door. the power for the other three doors must first travel through the switches in the driver door before it goes to the passengers. hence the reason why when somebody rolls down a passenger window and you push the up button on the driver door the window stops moving. the wires can break inside the rubber boot in the door jam. you can also have an internal problem with the driver door switch unit. you would need a wiring diagram to diagnose this concern.
If you take the door panel off which there is only 2 to 4 screws holding in on and some clips in the back. pull the window to the top of the door and tape in place pull the track up and line track up with the window fully up and make sure to tighten track bolts on both the window and door bolts. hope that helps
Window motors & regulators go bad every day. Pull your door panel, unplug the motor, if you have an ohm meter apply the leads to the leads into the motor. One will be ground the other two will raise and lower (reverse) the motor. If you show resistance between the leads the motor windings are good and the problem may be the window regulator. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can run two wires (one ground, the other hot) and test the motor by applying elec to it.
No the only way to fix these wire regulators is replace them, they are fairly cheap, think about it, you pull the door panel, remove the regulator try to fix it and put it back, right away it fouls up, you have worked hard for nothing, replace it.
