Go to and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.
Apparently you are not mechanically inclined... if this is so, you'd be better off by taking 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.). This way you will find out which parts, if any, you need to fix it - perhaps fix it yourself.

Car doors wont lock with key the lock motor in back door wont turn off until you unlock the drivers door with the key


Part of your post "car doors wont lock with key" initially seems to be a mechanical problem. You could try opening the door panel, perform cleaning to remove dirt, accumulated dust and possibly rust and spray with general purpose lubricant such as WD40.

Your other concern "lock motor in back door wont turn off until you unlock the drivers door with the key" sounds like an electrical problem but may be interrelated to the locking problem of above. Pls try the cleaning as above described and additionally check if there are any switches that may likewise be affected by any dirt/rust.

For a possibly more detailed solution, perhaps you could post back the year and exact model of your Ford vehicle.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

In order to remove the P/S Gear Pitman Shaft Lower Seal where the Pitman arm is attached on a 1995 chevy G10 van , can the seal be removed from the outside by just removing the Pitman arm or does the gear...

Once you have the arm removed (use a puller made for that) You need to remove the c clip retainer. Many times you can loosely install the arm, put it back on the ground and with a catch pan under it, just quickly turn the wheel and pressure will drive the seals out. If that does not work, you can use long self tapping screws and put one into each side of the seal and pull it free. Most i've seen always have two seals separated by a steel flat washer. To re-install, you need to carefully drive the seal back in using a piece of pipe or anything that fits and does not damage it. I have special tools I made long ago to do that but the trick is to be careful not to get the seal too far in on any one side and to not damage it in any way. Likely someone makes an install tool. Make note of the order of the seals as you remove them and make a reference mark on the arm and shaft so you can get back together the same way it was.

How to replace lower rear control arms on a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclip

I'm not surprised the shop didn't want to do the work. SOMETIMES removing the cam bolt nuts, and applying a large lever and socket,with heat, will break the bolt free of rust.

If not, it gets involved and expensive very quickly. Bolts can be cut off with and angle grinder wheel, but control arm bushes or complete arms may need replacing.

Passenger wing mirror replacement

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

How to a remove the wiper arm

Most windshield wiper arms usually fail due to a loose nut or rusted and worn out parts. Fixing this depends on how the wiper arm attaches to the vehicle. Fixing wiper arm failure is usually as easy as tightening a nut or replacing a worn out or rusted part.

Here is a step by step guide on fixing this issue.

Step1 49869_65x95_aspect.jpg Mark the existing wiper position on the windshield using a crayon. This will help you align the wiper arm correctly when you install a new one. Alternatively you can use the Trucks own markings. At the bottom center of the windshield you will see writing and three small dots. The wiper should rest on top of these dots. Step2 49870_65x95_aspect.jpg Follow the wiper arm down to where it connects with the Truck. You should find a hinged cap at the end. Step3 49871_65x95_aspect.jpg Lift this cap to reveal the nut and screw underneath. Step4 49872_65x95_aspect.jpg Use a wrench (or socket and ratchet) to loosen the nut. Step5 49873_65x95_aspect.jpg Remove the nut completely, leaving the screw stud exposed and the wiper arm free to be removed. Step6 49875_65x95_aspect.jpg Lift the arm straight up. Wiggle the arm and pull upwards at the same time until the arm slides free of the screw. If it seems stuck, push the arm back down and proceed to Step 7. Step7 49876_65x95_aspect.jpg Use a battery cable puller to pry the arm loose. Arrange so the large puller screw cap sits on top of the wiper arm screw. The outside arms have flat fingers that should be fitted underneath the wiper arm. Step8 49877_65x95_aspect.jpg Grasp the handle at the top of the puller and turn clockwise. The puller screw will push down on the wiper arm screw and simultaneously pull up on the wiper arm. A few slow turns should pop the wiper arm free.
