Electric window will not go up

Hyundai Sonata 2006 drivers side window made clunking noises on the way down and then stopped. It won't go up. I don't want to repair, I just want to manually pull it up (right now I cannot pull it up) and then leave it until I turn it in when I get a new (newer) car. Its not worth the money to fix it at this point. How can I do this?

Most likely a small cable on pulleys hooked to a motor runs your window and the cable is chewed up and stuck in the motor. I had this problem and bought the motor/cable and bracket all in one from auto parts warehouse for $50

    Well the problem is that I am almost upside down on my car at this point. It has 144,000 miles on it and several other small problems that I would need to fix before I could sell it. I am going to turn it into a dealer and he is going to give me the same price for the car no matter if the window is fixed or not. So if I spend 100 to get this fixed and then something else goes wrong, I am pouring money into a car that at the end of the day is not worth it, hence why I just want to get the window rolled up until I am ready to send it to car heaven.

SOURCE: 2004 clunking noise thru steering!

Its probably the intermediate steering shaft. The shaft where it goes thru the firewall is known for clunking on these trucks. GM makes a lube kit to fix the noise. I don't have the part number handy, but the parts guy at the local dealer will know what you are looking for.

Good Luck

sounds like a bad cv shaft. If there is clicking while making a turn, 90% of the time you will need a new cv shaft. The shudder also denotes a bad cv shaft (front axle) Most axle repairs cost up to $400. If you are charged more, find a new mechanic. if the car feels like it floats back and forth (side to side) Be sure to check the control arm bushings. If you are not sure how to inspect them, visit a service center. Any problem in the suspension should be addressed immediatley. Stay safe.

It does come with the axle. That is the counter balance.

SOURCE: 2001 Toyota corolla LE: Driver side power window problems

The motor is burned out, likely due to heavily worn brushes inside. As the motor cools (from lack of use) it becomes usable again, but quickly heats up and seizes with use.

You will need to replace the window motor. If you are mechanically inclined it is not a difficult job.

The door panel needs to be removed (numerous philips screws and push fasteners), then there are two 10mm bolts holding the glass to the regulator. Support the glass in the upward position with tape or suction cup supporting devices.

Disconnect the power to the motor and unbolt the regulator from the door (about 5 10mm bolts), then slide the regulator and motor assembly out the door opening.
If you purchased a complete regulator/motor (typical aftermarket), simply install the new one in reverse order.
If you purchased just the motor (typical OEM), you will need to unbolt the motor from the regulator. Becautious as the regulator is spring loaded and will snap open once the motor separates. Install the new motor with the regulator in the same position as before disassembly, and reinstall into the vehicle.

SOURCE: Hyundai Sonata 2006 - Check Engine light came on.

"Fuel system too lean at idle". It's an air/fuel ratio that is not correct, possibly a vacuum leak somewhere. Or a leaky exhaust pipe. Could be related to intake manifold gasket. Somewhere, air is getting into the engine.

I suggest taking it back to the dealer under warranty. I think Hyundai is 10yr./100k for the original owner. 5yr./50k if not. Ask first if covered, and ask why not id not covered.

Electric window


First step is to see if you can short the switch to work right at the switch itself. If you can do that then you are down to a wire issue still even after you have replaced what you have. There also may be fuse dedicated to just the drivers side itself. It does not make sense for that to be but that is where I would take it next is to see if it is an isolated circuit for some reason.

2009 Hyundai Sonata- Car is making a ticking, sometimes clunking noise from the front left side, when making a left turn. What could be causing this noise?


That will be your front axle or your left side ball joints, have them checked out, it will not be an easy fix or something that you can do yourself, it will continue to happen and wont get fixed with time.

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata the sunvisor will not stay up or all the way down. It just flaps back and forth, I have to put double sided tape on it for it to...


If under 60,000 miles, take it to the dealer for replacement - free of charge. Both sun visors on my 2006 Hyundai Sonata did the same thing and had them both replaced, but now out of warranty and driver's side has done it again so I'll have to pay to have it fixed. Looking for a used one online now. I guess this is just a defect in that particular model.
