What do you mean off track are they jammed in the door panel or do you mean they work once in a while if they are out of the channel you take your door panel off and remove the window and reinstall in the track make sure you lube the track because sometimes the window jams because the channel is to dry and causes the window to stick if you are saying the windows work once in a while the harness at the drivers side usaully breaks in the rubber garment so you have no choice to take panel off and try to remove the garment and chk your harness to repair cut wires if worst to worst you can cut the rubber garment with a exato knife be careful not to cut other wires and cause a greater problem then when you fix the wires you can tape up the old garment but i need more imfo

Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.

All doors open besides drivers it lock me in have to climb over seat to passengers n windor off track but there's power to open windor butglass off track


A rod connects the inner door handle to the lock mechanism. Possibly the window off track damaged the rod or knocked it off where it attaches to the lock or the handle. To check this you must remove the inner door panel. I suggest you check "you tube" to see if there are any vids on the procedure.. if not go purchase the Chilton manual or take the car to a serviice center. It will be at lease 2 hours of labor + any needed parts. the window can be repaired at the same time since the inner panel will be removed.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee front passenger window will not operate where is the motor located how do I tell If it the motor,switch or regulator causing it not to work?


first check the switches on driver's door and passenger door , most often this is the cause. switch them around to check or use jumper wires in the connectors. motor is inside the door low towards the front. motor is bolted to window regulator assembly.
1. take off door panel and plastic liner
2. remove 3 or 4 bolts retaining assembly with window up, but mark exact location as this affects alignment
3. pivot assembly to remove rollers from track on glass
4. remove assembly through largest opening on inner door frame
5. un bolt motor from regulator
6. Install in reverse order
I am willing to elaborate on any and all of these points untill you are done, just reply to this feed for more info

Saturn LS2 1998. Front passenger window won't close.


Does the window move at all? If so, then it may have come off the track inside the door. Otherwise the window motor may be going bad. You will need to remove the door panel to investigate.

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...

Carefully remove the window switch, open it and spray electrical contact cleaner on contacts. Try it now. You may need to remove door panel and lubricate guides and tracks for window. Let me know.
