Yes!... what do you mean when you write "power windows went but not return to..." What does that mean? You want free advice?.. Then I want a clear description/definition of the problem. Otherwise, Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

Rear door lock wont open

Before buying a new actuator. Spray some wd-40 down in there and play around with it a little bit. My 98 Durango was the same way. I sprayed wd-40 inside the lock and then up underneath and just played around with it for 5 minutes and it finally broke free and works fine. If that doesn't work, take the door panel off ( a job that can be easy or hard depending on the vehicle) and spray some more wd 40 in there and play around with it. If that doesn't work you might just have to replace it.

Rear hatch door in ford windstar-mechanism came apart

My back hatch would not open but it appears the lock was sticking and the return spring to the handle is broken. We used the key to unlock the back door and then door opened. Then husband sprayed WD 40 in all the lock holes. Now once we open the door we have to push the handle back down as return spring is still missing but the door opens :) . My van is a 2002 Ford Windstar.

Need an undercarriage protection for our 2003 chevy blazer - cant find one!

There are any number of commercial protection products available over the counter.. of any auto part store, or online.

In my own humble opinion... Your best protection is regular washing with clean water, and some WD40 on all unpainted surfaces. Any coating you put on will eventually trap moisture and contaminants under it, causing corrosion faster.
Easy way to prevent undercarriage rust is to power wash the entire undercarrage, then spray the entire undercarriage with WD-40 before the onset of winter.

WD-40 displaces water, helping to keep rust under control. Suprisingly, it doesn't come off as easily as you'd think in wet winter driving.
Use use two medium size cans of WD-40 to do all undercarriage, making sure to spray every nook and cranny (but avoiding the brake rotors/pads) until it is saturated.

Believe it or not, one good coating will last all winter--at least enough to prevent rust. Each spring, use a high pressure sprayer to clean the undercarriage and reapply a new coat of WD-40 for the spring/summer/fall months.

2001 Montero Rear door latch doesn't open in cold weather. The panel you press to open the door doesn't return to rest position.

I had the same problem and someone in the dealership advised me to saturate the entire latch mechanismn with WD 40 before trying to figure out what is wrong with it, I did so and have never had another problem again, I have solved many sticking locks and latch problems with WD 40 ever since and found 90% of the time parts are not needed just a good lubricant to keep things flowing!!! Good luck, hope this helps.

The exterior and intrior lights come on and go off

What I did was take a can of WD-40 with the straw on the nozzel and sprayed a large amount up into the latch mechanism. Do this to ALL the doors, hood, back door too. Open and close each of them many times to get the WD-40 all around the latch. The latch gets dust, dirt, old grease in it and needs to be lubed.

How do you unlock the power window to push it in upright position

Before you go through all that problem of taking the door panel apart, check the fuse, wire harness between the door hinge, and the switch it self. You can try removing the power window switch, which just pop's out from the door without removing the door panel and wiggle it around while pushing the up button. It may just be as simple as a switch gone bad, that can be bought at Auto Zone or you can pick one up at a salvage yard for $10.00. You can even try swapping the window switch with the passenger side to try to get the window to go up if the wire harness clip's are the same. God luck and keep me posted, be glad to help and if you need to disassemble the door to get to the window, keep me posted, be glad to help you with that too.
