SOURCE: not ready codes

There is a long drive cycle for this issue and it is a tsb so it should be free. Have them call hyundai tech line to get the drive cycle. Its so long i could never type it out for you. Its pages but it works. If the dealer gives you any problems call hyundai consumer affairs and they will take care of it for you. the number is in your owners manual or ask a sales person. Hyundai cansumer affairs will do anything to make you happy. Hope this helps good luck.

SOURCE: trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th

DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.

SOURCE: my check engine light came on my 02 SantaFe, what can i do?

Have the codes read to find out the fault code that triggers the light. Go to a mechanic, or your local auto parts superstore and have them check it. Hope this helps.

Why does my dashboard lights flash on and off when I break? battery and oil light turn on red before car shuts off. car will restart but shuts off again after driving a short while and repeats.


Have the check engine light scanned for codes related to this problem first. You may have a charging system issue causing low voltage resulting in the lights flashing/stalling.

My dashboard lights (battery emergency brake light & air bags) are flashing on my dashboard while driving but go out when I come to a stop on my 2001 santa fe


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Left turn signal & dashboard indicator lamps engaged when lights are on. Problem goes away when lights are turned off, but draws excessive current noticable by dashboard lights dim as the turnsignal...


Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

2002 hyundai santa fe transmission will not engage


You might have lost your lower gears, I would have someone look at it to see if your gears are gone or if its just a faulty sensor.
