The drive teeth on the gear that turns with the window motor are not engaging the teeth on the lift mechanism. They may be stripped, or just out of alignment. You need to remove the inner door panel and investigate to see what the issue is. It may be that you need to push the window up slightly to get it to engage the lift gears, and then it'll go up.

My 2004 acura rsx. the window track clips dont stick to the window when they go down. so the window works fine when it goes up. but doesnt come down with the track clips. is there a adhesive i can buy. or...

I had the same problem with our 2004 RSX. First the driver's side window now the passenger side. They tried to glue the window back twice (driver's side) and ended up having to replace the window and tabs. Now the passenger side did the same thing. My wife put up the window and it kept going, coming out of the track. I'm assuming the window will have to be replaced. Waiting for Acura's ruling. Must be a flaw in the tabs/glue...should have been a recall.

Passenger side window fell down when pressed down button. now wont go back up and wont stay up when pushed up

Take it to an auto glass shop, the window has fallen out of the track attached to the regulator. If there is no whining motor sound the regulator may have died as well and you need to look around on ebay for a replacement, Since the driver door regulator usually dies first however, I would bet on the regulator being good, window just out of track. A glass shop can fix that for you in a few hours for less than a hundred bucks. If price is not a factor then a dealer can do it for you for about 500 bucks.
