My passenger power window does not operate with either the driver or passenger side controls. All fuses checked out OK. What do I do to isolate what needs to be fixed without having to pay a dealer $$$$$ to do it?

Dealership said the main office changed the gapvsetting and they adjusted all at last coil change. But now 3 months later another coil is mis firing. Sick of wasting my time and money.

The Occupant Detection System (ODS) of the restraint system may not sense a child seat in the passenger front seat. This may cause the passenger front air bag to remain active when a child seat is installed, which can cause unintended deployment in a collision. Dealers will correct ODS software to resolve this concern.

The affected vehicles are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation. Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

The stop lamp switch may fail, affecting many vehicle systems including the brake lights, transmission shift interlock, electronic stability control, and the cruise control. Failure of any of these systems could increase risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch to correct these issues. This recall is to begin on June 29, 2009. The Hyundai recall number is 092.

Bought a 2011 Accent brand new and have had to get coil changed 3 times now. I will never buy a Hyundai again this is costing me a fortune. I did all preventive maintenance and paid over $600 this month just in that. Of course the coils keep failing repeatedly after my warranty is up, and i have to pay $160 every time. I believe it is time to go back to Chevy
