Opening your Hyundai's window is made incredibly simple by the Hyundai window motor. Nestled within the door panel, the Hyundai window motor is connected to the window regulator and creates the power that it relays to the regulator. This is what allows your window to go up and down at minimum effort to you. Mostly, a defective Hyundai window motor is caused by water damage and ironically enough, this occurs when the window is left open while it is raining and rain seeps into either the arm rest control panel, or through the door panel if the window seals are not intact. This can be prevented with a Hyundai vent visor.
Nevertheless, if your Hyundai window motor goes bad, your windows will not roll down for any reason, meaning that if you need to pay a toll, pass by a drive-thru window, or ask for directions while driving, you will not be able to roll down your window, at all. Even if you don't normally roll your window down, just knowing that you cannot do so will drive you crazy, because feeling like a prisoner in your own vehicle does not accurately match the concept of the open road.

When power windows of your Hyundai no longer work or seem to act up as you push the button or flick the switch, the Hyundai window motor is often blamed since everything is supposed to be automatic. You then have to check if the one causing the electrical failure is a bad window motor.
Symptoms of a faulty window motor or regulator assembly
- Window does not automatically roll up or down even after pressing the button multiple times
- Window rolls up or down faster or slower than usual
- Clicking sounds can be heard from the door when the window rolls up or down
If you encounter any of these, the power windows need to be checked to figure out what is really causing the problem.
Checking for window motor problems
Inspect the fuse.
When dealing with electronics, usually, the first thing that you have to check on your vehicle is the fuse. The owner’s manual can help you locate the fuse box or compartment and identify which fuse is designated for power windows. Examine the fuse. If the fuse is blown, replace it with a new one (with the same amperage) and then switch on the power windows to see if this will work.
Check the window relay.
You have to safely remove the window relay before installing a jumper. Your vehicle manual can help you figure out where everything goes. Test the power windows. If they work with the jumper installed, this means that the window motor is not at fault.
Test the window switch.
You can check if the window switch is working using a voltmeter or ohmmeter. If the test shows low voltage, the electrical problem could be coming from the switch or something could be wrong with the motor.
Once you have identified the source of the window problem, the necessary window motor repair or replacement can be done to finally fix the power windows for your convenience. Motor replacement or repair may take about a couple of hours or more to finish. For the labor, the estimated fee could be over $100, in addition to the window motor replacement cost. Please note that labor fees or repair prices vary per location and per make and model, and may fluctuate from time to time.
Getting a window motor replacement
Make sure that the window motor is a perfect match.
When shopping for OE replacements or any Hyundai parts online, see to it that the product is specifically built for the year, make, model, and trim level of your vehicle. Use the complete vehicle specifications on your search (e.g., 2006 Hyundai Sonata window motor) and make sure that the product details match.
Check to see if the window motor is new or remanufactured.
Some window motors are sold as remanufactured units, which means that they are rebuilt using reused, repaired, and/or new parts to match OEM specifications and to restore full function. Since they are rebuilt, these units are sold at lower prices.
Compare prices and check the product details.
Window motors may be bought per unit (for the front or rear passenger or driver side) or may be purchased as a set. By checking the product details and making a comparison with the prices and features, you can find a good deal when shopping around for a replacement. The price of a single window motor ranges from around $50 to over $200, while a set of two costs around $110 to more than $200.
