Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent
My battery is less then nine months old, but the car still has the original alternator. Do you think this is a problem with the alternator, or just a sensor. Also, about 10,000 miles ago, I changed the brake pads, rotors, and the brake drums. Any advise??
The light that comes on just say "BRAKE", correct?
If this is the case first check the fluid level in the master cylinder. If it is low it will turn the light on. Top off with DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid only. Continue to monitor the level. if it goes down again within 10k miles than there is likely a leak somewhere.
The other thing that will case the BRAKE light to illuminate is if the E-BRAKE lever is not in its full retracted position.
If there was a problem with the charging system a light would come on that looks like a "battery". You should be able to see this light for a couple of seconds every time you turn the key on.

you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.

NO $300 special tools are needed. A impact screwdriver to remove the set screw from the hub.
You can buy an impact screwdriver for about 30-40 bucks at a cheap tool store.
