    That's what I was beginibg to think. I checked the fuses and they was fine. Then I remembered something I used on other problems and that was disconnect the battery and that WORKED. Problemed solved. I think when you disconnect the battery it lets things reset.

    Thanks anyway but I fixed it myself.

Sometimes the BCM gets confused if there is a short in the wiring, or the safety switch has failed. Resetting the battery is a temporary fix - however, you will need to get to the crux of the problem - or it will keep happening intermittantly.

Thanks for using FixYa - Glad you were able to come to a solution.

Where can I find the child safty door lock realease switch to be able to open the back doors from the inside?


The child safety door lock release switches are usually located on the inside of the door. The only way to unlock them is while the car is parked, and you have the door you are wanting to work on is open. While the door is open, look at the inside of it, kind of where the door fits to the car. You'll see a little black lever that you can "turn on and off." This is the child safety lock mechanism.

Door is locked and will not open child safty lock


there is a button for every child safety lock. on the drivers door. if it is not working, then you may have to take the door pannel off and either plug the wiring back in(especially if the door got slammed hard) or go to a wrecking yard and buy a new switch for just a few bucks & replace it. Door pannels come off really easy. most pop off. some have screws. either way its an easy fix. you can do it. good luck, Tim

The passenger side brake light, and passenger side (front and back) window control doesn't work is it a fuse?


Well, the short answer is no.
The lights and windows are are different fuses.
There's a slight chance you have a problem with a ground wire on that side, but I doubt the two problems are related.
I would check the light for power and ground, and look at the window switches for power and ground. The windows are powered thru the driver switch on most cars.

I have a 2003 hyundai sonata the power windows stopped working, I have changed the fuses and checked the child lock safty..nothing works what else could it be


Dear kaydynandtri, If you have the owner's manual find the power window relay. They are usually located in the fuse box. Check to see if there is another relay that matches that one and switch places with them. If the windows work or the accessory the relay came from does not the relay is bad. If this does not work I would replace the driver's door power window switch. I have also seen the wire break on older cars where it goes into front of driver's door.

Doorlocks dont work except from passenger side. mirrors dont work. windows dont work from anywhere


First, check all fuses to make sure that none are blown.

If the door lock switch works on the passenger side, then the drivers side door lock switch is probably faulty. Use a multi-meter to test the Drivers Side Door Lock Switch (Black and Pink/Light Green wires unlock the vehicle, and the Black and Pink/Yellow wires lock the vehicle)
If the switch is tested and found to be operating properly, you may have a faulty Body Security Module or Drivers Side Door Lock Actuator.

If neither of your Power Mirrors are working, you probably have a faulty Exterior Rear View Mirror Switch, Power Mirror Module, or blown Central Junction Box Fuse.

If none of your Power Windows are working, you probably have a faulty Accessory Delay Relay or a blown fuse in your Central Junction Box or a faulty Master Window Adjust Switch (all of the Power Window Switches feed through this Master Window Switch). If the Power Windows didn't stop working at the same time, you may have faulty Window Adjust Switches, or faulty Power Window Motors, this is very unlikely though. It would also be a good idea to inspect the wiring for any obvious damage.

Drivers door power window control stopped working.power mirrors won,t work interior lights want come on when you open drivers door but the other three doors interior lights come and the power window...


Since it is only happening on the drivers side door to multiple switches and lights on that door only, I think the problem is the wiring harness as it enters the drivers door by the door hinges.
