Question about 2005 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

The headlights and heater turn off while driving.

While driving, the headlights and heater suddenly turn off. I learned that when that happens, if I just jiggle the key in the ignition, the lights come back on. Does this indicate a need to replace the ignition switch? Is it a job that a non-mechanic could handle? If so, how do you replace the ignition switch?

Yes,you need to replace the inition switch. You will have to have a steering wheel puller, snap-ring pliers, and a few screw drivers an a socket set. It is a goood little job, but can be done in a few hours. But it could be the other inition switch which mounts on the side of the steering colum shaft. It is a switch the has to be adjusted so that the key moves all the part in the right position. It has two screws or two bolts to remove to install it and adjust it. It not to bad to do.

Volvo 1998 S70 headlight and indicators won't always turn on


I have had this happen before - this is the multifunction switch on the steering column. The one on my Ford took about 10 minutes to change (two bolts). My problem - I would turn my lights off, then turn them back on and nothing, then they would suddenly pop on. after a bit my lights would not come on at all. I had to drive with my Flash to Pass lights for a couple of days when driving at night.

I hope this helps!

Sounds as though you have an exposed electrical connection that's either getting splashed from the tires, or the moisture is creating a temporary disconnection. This can happen, but once it dries it will resume working. I would have your electrical system checked. I would also have your headlight switch checked for a possible short.

My 1996 LS 400 appears to have a widespread electrical problem. It happened suddenly. No dash lights, AC/heater are out, electrical windows not working. Can't shift it out of park. Engine cranks just fine....


Always go directly to the ground and check it is clean and well connected. I speak mainly here of the body grounds. Battery to starter is fine cause it cranks well and headlights are operable, it's just the battery ground to the body that's giving you trouble. When electrical problems arise, Always go directly to the grounds first.

The first thing you should do is check your transmission fluid! then look for leaksif it keeps happening and the last step would be to look into getting the tranny checked by a mechanic.
