It is highly unlikely that it is off its track unless the door has been apart & not reassembled correctly.
1. it is possible that the bottom of the window is broken or became diconnected from mounting bracket.
2. if key is on & not started, push switch & see if interior light dim any. if it does, then it is a bad motor or the window is jammed. if not, continue below.
3. remove the door panel & check the electrical connection, it could have came undone.
4. check the electrical connection for power when pressing the switch. if power is present, then check wires leading to the motor for damage. if all looks good, then it is possibly the motor.
5. if no power to the connector, then you will need a wiring diagram to check other possible connection points. hope this helps

SOURCE: 2004 mitsubishi endeavor passenger rear window off track

Yea its actully quite simple, but expensive. The regulator needs to be replaced. I have already replaced my right rear, but I think my driver side is going out also, sounds like it anyway.
Thank God I bought a third party warrnty and they took care of everything. Zurich is the name of the company. I purchased the one with no deductible. Anyway I wish I had a better solution-but its awful hard to do your self.

SOURCE: driver and passenger windows apear to be off tracks

They are definitely either off track, or the window regulators are broken, or some mounting points are broken in the door trim. I am not really familiar with the door trim in Elantras, but the inside door panels will have to be taken off (which is real easy if you know what you're doing on that type of vehicle but manufacturers like to hide screws, bolts and clips which can make it a pain if you don't know exactly what holds the panel in place) and once the panels are off the source of the problem will probably be obvious...

The driver and passenger side windows are either off the track or the motor is defected.

You will need to remove the door panels and take a look inside to see if the window regulator is broken, the most common reason for a glass to be off track is the regulator and aslo window not moving, once inside you will see and can test for power at the motor too see if the motor is bad.

Passenger window on 94 lumina van

If all the other windows work when the passenger window won't move (during the 5 min period), then the passenger side motor is bad. If the motor pulls too much amperage, the circuit breaker that is built into the motor will trip, until it cools down.
