Thanks for the reply, I can lock and unlock the car with the key, but when i try to open using the door handle on the inside or the outside, i can feel there is no resistance, like some wires or cables have disconnect that controls the locking mechanism. The door panel is in one piece I have thought about it to attack the panel and rip it to shreds Thanks for a quick answer dose someone here know about any repair manual for sonata online for free ?

https://www.hyundaitechinfo.com/ is Hyundai's official site (it used to be hmaservice.com). They do offer free manuals for some of their cars so you can see if they have yours.

The crankshaft sensor sits right next to the crankshaft belt. When your belt gets loose it chafes on the wire for the sensor which is what causes these intermittent problems. It may be fine one day, bad the next, sometimes the car will even stop running. I used to be an aircraft mechanic, i work in a chemical plant now and these are common issues with wiring and could be fixed if they ever decided to do a recall and reroute the wiring for the sensor.
I had this problem for about 5 years on my 2003 sonota I bought in 2004. I finally gave the car away because I was sick of messing with the sensor every 2 years or so...which seemed to be the timeline for the wiring to get worn down again.
I replaced and adjusted the belt several times but it sits too close to the wiring and the minute it moves it flexes and wears the wire down...it's only a matter of time before it happens again.
My stepson originally wrecked the car the first year I had it and I thought it was a wiring problem associated with the wreck and the insurance paid to have it fixed the first couple times...then they considered it a maintenance problem and wouldn't pay anymore. so I got rid of it.

I have experienced the same problem. The problem with the door is that a small spring inside the door is broken on the latch which combines the inside and outside door handle to open the door latch. The way to open the door is to use a slip (jimmy, slim jim, etc) and hook the unit and push down the lever where the spring connects. At the same time pull the door open. Replace the spring ( I believe it's a compression spring with a tail on one end and a loop on the other). Make sure the spring you get is strong enough 3-5 lbs pull. Use some grease so it doesn't rust as fast. Then enjoy your working door.
#3234 of 3234 rattle on roof
Oct 15, 2012 (7:44 am)
Thought it might be helpful for some.
Have a 2006 Sonata GLS 2.4L. One year into owning it,
I've heard a very annoying rattle from behind when I's driving over bumps.
Sent it to dealer one time and they said they fixed it by padding some
tape etc. But after a while it came back. Recently, my wife's driving,
I sit on back seat and listened carefully - finally nailed it. It sounded like
from c-pillar or trunk if you sit in the driver's seat. But actually it's from
the roof - headliners. Then I took apart of the driver side B-pillar trim and opened
up the headliners nearby - saw a segment of double-threaded wires hanging
there, with loose glue - the glue supposed to attach the wires on the headliners
under it but got broken. The loose wires obviously at bumps of road will vibrate
to a rattle. So, it's fixed:) Saved me the trouble and maybe cost of service at a
