Question about 1998 Hyundai Tiburon
The regulator "ergulates the voltage going to the motor.
If you hear it humming - chances are the gearbox is stripped or the motor shaft has broken.
The only way to see if it is "off the track" is to remove the door panel, and check it out.
Once you find the problem - please use the "Continue with this expert" option so we are connected again in the future, and I can help you out.

I tried searching for the diagram but I couldn't find one. Since the motor still works, but the windows won't come up, there's a possibility that the motor looses contact to the gear that pushes the window up. You have to remove the handle and the door cover to check that one.
Here's what you need to do:
First take out all of the screws in the door panel. There is one in the handle that opens the door, and 2 in the door panel handle. Use the flat screwdriver to pop off the covers. Taking out the door handle is a little tricky. Slide it towards the front of the car and pull out. You might not get it the first try. Once you get the handle out enough, you will be able to see 2 metal rods connecting to it(towards the back of the car). Using the standard screwdriver, pull the plastic piece(either blue or red) towards you and it should unclip from the rod. Next, pick up on the rods and they should come out of the handle. Once all screws and the door handle are removed, you can take off the panel.
To remove the door panel, simply pull it off, starting at the bottom of the door and prying your fingers between the panel and the door. You will hear a series of pops. You didn't break anything. If it doesn't come fairly easy, don't pull too hard. You may have missed a screw. Once the panel swings freely on the window slot, get it close to the door and pick up, as the top rests in the window slot. Since you have power windows, you will have to unclip the wires going to the switch.
Then check if there's any loose contact between the motor and the gear.
Have a great day!
