Check the wiring going to the latch for loose connections and also check the relay which is located on the side of the trunk wall.

All 4 windows won't work and rear door latch won't open! So, I have two problems: Firstly my rear hatch won't open as of yesterday (Keyless entry pushed & it doesn't even make a noise...

Look at your maintenance manual. To find where your fuse box is located(may be under the hood or under the steering wheel). When you find the fuse box look on the back of the panel flap and you'll find a fuse map. Locate the fuse that corresponds with your problem. It could be the same fuse but not likely. If fuse is blown then replace it with a spare. Most manufacturers will put spare fuses in the box or you could pull a fuse from some where else just to try and see if the problem is still there( make sure it's the same size and understand that it could blow this fuse as well then you will need 2 fuses). Most of the time fuses don't just blow. For some reason it pulled to much load. Probably a dead short in the wiring. I hope this helps.

Hatch won't open

The car doesn't have a remote release lever on the driver's side floor in front of the driver's seat- where the gas door lever might be too?

Try pushing DOWN on the hatch while either turning the key or moving the lever.

Look in the Owner's Manual (or download one online).

Replacing rear hatch struts on 2002 santa fe

open the hatch,, get a 2x4 or something that will hold the weight of the hatch up, prop it in place against the floor and the hatch itself, so its solid and won't come off under pressure so once you remove the strut it doesn't come crashing down on you, they have a bunch of different ends on them, when you buy the replacements make sure the end caps are the same, some are held in place by a nut with a bolt that attaches to a bracket on the opposite side , and some have screws at each end that go right into the sheet metal of the car . with the hatch open,, you should have very little play left in the strut itself,, but still use care in the removal of the first side of it,, you may have to push it in a little to get it to release, again, this depends on the mounting harware that your vehicle has for attachments. don't think that replacing one side at a time will hold the hatch open,, use the board or broomstick if you have to,, to support the door

Rear wiper inoperative. How to diagnose?

try slowly opening and closing the rear hatch-door with the wiper switch on and see if wiper trie to operate.I had an intermittent problem with no sound coming from any speakers,but I could see from the radio display that the station and song were being displayed,by chance Iopened the rear hatch and the sound came blaring out of all the speakers.Turns out there is an electrical cable that comes from the roof area into the center of the rear hatch(between the hinges) and from flexing as the hatch opens and closes several wires broke and would intermittently make up and sometimes go open again.Took vehicleto dealership and the fixed and or replaced that part of the wiring harness,claiming they had not seen that problem before,seems hard to believe,as no doubt all of these models had the same wiring harness.--Good luck
