Question about 2004 Honda Odyssey
My front pass side window will roll down, but in order to get it back up I have to hit window lock then window unlock then it will come up. Sometimes it wont even do that. And its like that on both door switches. New window motor has been put in it and new switch has been put in it. Also put in used master switch.
Maybe the wire harness (move door harness when pushing switch) or corroded conectors in doors or passenger's under-dash fuse/relay box connectors?

Very unusual issue. Sounds as if you may have a wiring section frayed or almost broken. This usually happens in the area which flexes in the hinge area on the driver's door, as the driver's door sees the most use. I know the issue is with the passenger side window, but remember that the hot wire for that window runs first thru the driver's master switch.

SOURCE: passenger electric window
I think that what has happened with your vehicle, is that the master (driver control) switch has become defective....If you have a friend who is good with electronics you may be able to ask for help in getting it fixed....otherwise a new unit is needed.

And you need the manual to look at how to do some tedious work. I couldn't remember all those parts so I recommend tape and labels and notes as you go if memory is bad. I tape the screws to the area where I removed them. Switches break too and so far I can't tell if it's a switch problem or motor. A small piece of copper wire should help you bridge the contact points, where the switch normally does so you can see if the switch is bad. My doors went bad close together and that indicates the switch. Some people say a can of switch cleaning spray is good enough.

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.

I had this problem as well as 33 others I've spoken to online. The main floor harness runs thru the drivers side front fender and plugs into the drivers door. The harness in 1996 civics are an inch or 2 too short so after a few years a few of the 25 thru 27 wires in the plug #C556 either break off or pull out of the plug. Since the drivers door contains the master power window and lock switches and the power mirrors can also be affected it can seem like everyones problems are in different parts of the car but they are all part of the same default. So I went to ebay and purchased a floor harness with full power options and installed it myself. Until my part came in I just went to a junk yard and cut off a good plug then spliced it into my existing floor harness. Hope this helps. It took me 4 months to figure this problem out!!!
