Question about 1996 Honda Civic
Hi, i own a 1996 honda civic lx. I have a problem, my power window on the passengers side does not roll down . I have taken apart the door panel to get at the wires that connect the switch to the motor and when i push up on the switch i hear and feel the motor work and it rolls the window up if I push down nuthing happens and the window doesnt roll down, then when i switch the wires and push up on the switch it rolls the window down and i i push down nothing happens. can you help me?
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!!!

I removed and installed the door connector between the hinges and it fixed the problem.

Sounds like a faulty connection in the switch. Replace the window switch.
