Question about 2006 Kia Sorento

Spilled drink on driver door, now passenger window stuck down

My husband spilled his tea, to avoid accident, on the driver side door, the next day the door locks keep clicking, and the driver window would randomly go up and down, and there was a sizzling noise. this lasted about a hour. Then everything worked fine. three days later, the passenger window would not go up.... and still hasnt. Any suggestions? How hard is it to get to the electronics, 1 screw? or the whole door dissembled? better off taking it to the dealership?

    thanks, I removed the entire master switch and gave it a bath... let it dry overnight, and the window went back up.

Maybe its not to late?what alot of people dont know is BABY WIPES is the answer; lets start at the drivers door it all started here if you can get the buttons popped up out of the panel and give them a good cleaning with baby wipes leave out for 5/6hours to dry.replace.allways remember the drivers door resets all doors.If your happy put everthing back into position.then with car running .pull the switch ie;drivers window switch to auto up,this should reset all windows.If it fails keep will work in time .adrian

I have a 2004 Titan 2 WD Crew cab. The drivers window has stopped working and the passengers window will roll down but may not roll back up.

have you tried both the switches on pass side as well as the drivers. does the pass side work but not the drivers? do you like to drive and drink coffee if so your spilling coffee on the switches and coffee makes a film on the electric contacts and makes em not work. you need to remove the switch cluster and pop the buttons off and clean it , you tube it, or the drivers door wires from the door to the car frame are broken you will see a lumpy looking rubber boot from the door to the car when the door is open. if you carefully cut the boot open you might find broken wires

Hyundai ix35 2012 window lock stuck. passenger window half down and cant get it to move up or down

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.

The passenger side window wont go up in Saturn

I'm assuming it's an electric window. Does the window motor make any noise, or just nothing? A bad switch will cause this, as will a bad motor. Sometimes the wires in the doors will break because of the opening and closing of the doors.

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work

I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.

How do i get to the window motor leads.

You should have 2 main wires going to the motor. Reversing the polarity should make motor wind opposite way.Sometimes when testing, if necessary, I'll use a 12VDC battery from a cordless drill as a test. Even a 14.4 volt will work. You may have to remove door panel to see which 2 actually go to that motor.
