Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

My 2001 Hyundai Accent has 106,438 miles. Last night the check brake and check battery lights both came on. My battery is less then nine months old, but the car still has the original alternator.

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.

SOURCE: rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads

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.

Rear lights have been stuck on for the past several months, even when my car if off (Causing me to unplug my battery everytime I turn the car off ). Just last night I found out my break lights don't work...


By any chance did you find urethane button parts on the drivers floor mat?

Look under the dash at the brake pedal lever just below the pivot point for a small plate with a hole in it. Normally the hole has a white/yellow urethane (rubber) button in it that makes contact with the brake light switch turning the brake lights off. If this button is missing the brake lights will stay on all the time and run your battery down. If your brake lights have been on steady all this time they could burn out too. The bad part is that no one knows when you are braking and you could get into an accident and worse, found liable for not having your car in a safe operating condition resulting in a ticket and so on. While you might be able to find a substitute for the button, that could damage the brake light switch plunger tip making matters worse. The button from Hyundai is very cheap and a quick fix.
