Hyundai Elantra power windows goes down , but does not want to go up.
I fixed this problem by stipping the power switches and filling down the inner metal contracts. I put the switchs back together and got all my windows to work.
The Contacts get burnt , beacuse of the high current the window motor draws.
One by one they went: left rear at 100k miles. Right rear at 110k miles. Right front at 118k miles. Finally, driver's window at 130k miles. From what I understand, there is a ceramic component that is part of the window pulley assembly that wears over time and breaks/shatters/crumbles into a few pieces. I heard that Hyundai wants about $250 to $300 per window to repair. I can see why, as it's almost impossible to get in the window well. Well, that's too much money for me (it almost surpasses the value of the car if I did all 4). I wedged the windows up with some PVC piping and some pressure treated wood. Seems to be working. I do miss the fresh air, though.
Front passenger window switch no longer rolls window down, only up. Driver console still works. Also, passenger front window is beginning to struggle when rolled past about half way either up or down. Signs the hardware is failing
My right rear window will not open from drivers switch, but it will go down with right rear door switch.
Found out I need to open the drivers door to make both switches work. I think a wire broke in the driver's door harness.
