Question about Hyundai Motor 2003 Elantra

1 Answer

The power locks and power windows of the whole car shut down. Not sure if it's a power relay or not, but if all stopped working at the same time, what's the issue?

Tried checking fuses in the driver side fuse box. Fuses look good

Possible all power runs through the master switch. Check if there is power to it. May also want to check the wiring at the hinges where it comes into the drivers door for any broken wires.

SOURCE: headlights don't work, fuses are good

It's probably either a relay or bad electrical ground. You'll have to get a wiring diagram and a multimeter (like $5 for a harbor frieght cheapy) to track down the problem.

SOURCE: no low beams bulbs are ok fuses look good

There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.

SOURCE: my 2003 elantra all 4 windows stopped working.

Wiggle the wires going into the door from the pillar where the door hinges are while trying to put the window up or down if nothing happens then change the master switch.

Pull your fuses one by one until the power drain stops. Also relays contacts could be melted together

Both the windows and the locks (power) stopped working,,,,the fuse is fine,,,but dont know about the relay or the there a way to check with an existing relay

if you have 2 of the same relays in the fuse block, you can switch the 2 so you can check on the windows, if this fixes the problem just switch them back, and replace the bad relay, since you have 2 circuits that are failing, ( windows and Locks are normally separate) you may have an issue with the switches rather than the relay, if you have a meter , or `12 volts tester, you can check the switches, make sure you have power entering them first , then hold the switch in the up or down position, and see if the power is passing through the switch,, these switches are just basically a pass through of power, which depending on the position of the switch, ( up or down) transfers the power to the motor,, and the only thing that happens inside the switch, is the contacts pass power either directly straight through, or reversed, which gives you the up and down movement.

Does a 2002 Toyota RAV4 have a relay for window motor? This car is one of the cheap-material-made junk one ever buys, it took Toyota years to finally recall transmission problem on sears of 2001-2003 more...

Hi, there is only one relay for all of the windows, so that is not the problem. The likely problem is the switch. I recommend you test the switch using an ohmmeter.
In the case of the door lock, that problem may be a failed lock motor. I recommend you apply power directly to the lock motor to see if it works. If it does, check the switch. If not, replace the motor.

Where is the power window relay located on the '03 Buick Century? And could this be the problem for all windows to stop working at the same time EXCEPT the driver's window? Or possibly the lock switch not...

The lock switch is designed to keep the passenger buttons from being used. It should not stop the master switch from operating the windows - or at least, that's what the 2003 Buick Century Owner's Manual says.

After studying the schematics for your vehicle, Iwould say that the owner's manual is correct. The lockout switch only cuts power to the passenger switches. The driver's (master) switch can still power the passenger windows. If none of the passenger windows work from either the driver's door switch or the passenger switches, then the master switch probably has an internal open circuit causing this. There is no separate relay or fuse. I would replace the master switch. Be sure and check ALL switches with the lock on and the lock off to verify this before replacing anything.

Power windows and door locks stopped working?

First thing I would do is check the fuse. Then the relay (it's location should be in the owners manual) You can test the relay with an ohmmeter. It should have a strong reading. Make sure window lock is not on.

Drivers side power door lock will not lock/unlock any of the doors. All other power locks work fine. No power windows. All fuses and relays ok.

most liky your window got left down a few times too many.. what happens is the water or moisture will create corrosion will biuld up inside the switch and once it covers the contact inside it will stop the connection, you can try to take the switch itself apart but 90% of the time you will break the switch opening it up. if you have the time try to clean the contacts if not just replace the switch..
good luck

Pass.side power window won't work.

First be sure the window lock in the drivers side master switch is not LOCKED. This will prevent the windows from being rolled down by any other switch. (p106+)

Usually windows operate off a RELAY - not a fuse... and all the windows work off the same power relay.

Your Relay Part Number is 41-5021.
Here is the electrical schematic for your windows - showing the relay is common to all windows.

CLICK HERE for a better pic.

If the relay is replaced - and/or tested good, You will need to remove the offending door's panel and verify the motor is getting 12VDC when you press the button for it to go down.

If there is 12VDC when you push the button, the motor is bad.

If there is NOT 12VDC when you push the button - the master switch or child lock bypass switch is faulty.

Click HERE for a PDF version of your owners manual

Under the ROADSIDE EMERGENCIES section (p.245) you will find a layout diagram of your fusebox.

P.248 instructs to pull DOWN on the fusepanel door to access... however your power window relay is located under the driver's side dash.

If the other windows work - there are 3 options to test/replace - in this order
1. Relay
2. Master Switch
3. Window motor.
