If the windows work by moving the door, there is a bad wirein the harness. You will have to remove the covering on the bundle going from the door post to the door and start searching. I don't know Kia wiring but power wires are usually red, pink, or orange. Start with those. Look for cracks, scorch marks or excess flexibility. Tape up the cracks and splice the others with connectors and heat shrink tube. Make sure your pull the wire harness so you can check the part that goes through the door and the door post.Holding the switch in the on position while you move individual wires could help determine which wire is the culprit,too. Plan on a couple of hours and happy hunting.

Drivers side door wont open from inside, window problems


It is most likely a rod has fallen off inside the door. You may have to use a coat-hanger to read down inside and pull back on door latch to open it up.
Then after it is opened, remove screws on inner door panel, remove window/lock controls, take a big flat-head screwdriver and gently pry next to the plastic tabs holding on door panel. Remove door panel and put window back on track , and replace or reattach door handle rods.

How do I remove the inside front driver's side door panel?


First you gotta take out the screw. it is where you hold the door to open and close it from the inside, right back from the auto window openers. pop the cap off. take out the screw.

Second, open your lock.

Third start pulling. it'll come off. But if there something FOR SURE holding it in place, be careful not to crack the panel. But don't be a girl about it either, sometimes you gotta reef on it a little. Just use your judgement :)

Check the wiring between the drivers door and the A pillar(the body of the car). Sometimes the harness breaks from opening and closing the door.
