Hey there Rorique...
The 'Window Lock' button only locks out the passenger windows and not the drivers window. At least that's the way it is set up on my '07. So unless yours is set up to 'lock out' the drivers window also, deactivating the 'window lock' would have had no affect on your drivers window. There would be no point to a 'lockable' drivers window...
Just like you, I am a 'Points & Rotor' kinda guy... All this high-tech compuletrics (geeze, I just invented a new word... ) is beyond my knowledge. The 'Backyard Mechanic' is obsolete these days eh. Cars have evolved into such sophisticated machines that the 'novice' grease monkey can no longer completely maintain them.
Your problem may be a tad more complicated than just a switch failure, but IMO, a switch swap would be my first attempt at solving the problem.

Good word! Compulectrics, I'll pass it on to the other old school wrench benders! The ones I know would get a kick out of it!
I'm going to wait for complete failure, so I'll know for sure which component is causing all the problems. Right now it's working fine, but we'll see for how long. I'm pretty sure you're right though. Everything about it points to the switch. No telling when, but I'll post the results upon completion.

#24 of 29 Window's Off Track - Santa Fe
May 03, 2010 (8:05 pm)
My pax window is off track and will only go up 1/2 to 3/4 way then slow to a stop. It's not the motor and can see it needs to come in and is getting caught. Any suggestions? Can I take the inner panal off and see the problem?
#25 of 29 power window problem
May 15, 2010 (5:14 am)
My driver's side power window on my 2002 Santa Fe just broke. The window glass is intact but seems to be off track and will not close completely as it is crooked when I try to raise it up. Obviously I have to take it in to be fixed but I was wondering what the cost estimate for this kind of problem is and anything else I need to know before taking it to the dealer. Also has anyone else had this problem with a Santa Fe or other Hyundai?
#27 of 29 Power Window Issue 2004 Santa Fe
Apr 15, 2011 (7:04 am)
Anyone know what could be causing this problem. The power windows in the rear (both sides) go up and down using the controls on the respective doors but not if I use the driver's controls. The driver's control will only operate the driver's window and it will put up the rear passenger window (but won't put it down). The front passenger window doesn't operate at all using any of the controls. Too strange.
A garage told us it was probably a motor but if it was why would some of the windows go up and down with the door control but not work with the driver control.
#28 of 29 2002 Santa Fe front windows are off track and won't go up and down anymore
Sep 14, 2012 (6:00 am)
They used to squeak when going up and down and then all of a sudden they would get stuck and not go up and down anymore and when they'd get stuck they would be off kilter. I haven't gotten them fixed yet because I'm waiting for a recall on this problem since others have reported this problem frequently. Anyone know if there is a recall yet? Thanks
