Question about 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe

Open Question

Brake pedal will not press down upon starting up in cold weather

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe- Every winter for the past two seasons, once the weather drops below freezing, the brake pedal will not depress until the car is allowed to warm up. Car has been to the dealer 2X, thought the problem was corrected, but now since the weather has gotten cold again, the same issue is presenting itself. Anyone have any ideas?

Yes. Your Local Auto Parts Store should Carry these as Direct Replacements. If Not, Sears Carries them.

SOURCE: need instructions on removing hyundai santa fe 01 fan belt ac

its your serpentine belt (thats what its called) and you will need a 3/8 ratchet and then find the belt tensioner. The tensioner has a spot where you need to put the ratchet into and pull or push depending on whatever way and that will releive the pressure off the belt so you can take it off.

Most likely the o-ring seal between the torque converter and the transmission is going bad. Get that transmission rebuilt pronto before serious damage is done! But first, have a mechanic drop the transmission pan and look for signs of a very thin silvery film coating the inside of the pan. If found, then the transmission definitely will have to be rebuilt, and the torque converter will also have to be replaced since embedded metallic particles in the old torque converter will eventually come loose, due to wear of the clutch plates within the torque converter, and eat up the rebuilt transmission. Now, here is the deal once the transmission has been rebuilt:

Change the transmission fluid and filter once a year -- no matter what! If you do this, then you should never have any more problems with the transmission.

SOURCE: PROGRAM KEYFOB FOR HYUNDAI SANTA FE

This is from the factory service manual of your car:
There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Translation you need the dealer to do this.

2004 Hyundai santa fe brake lights on passanger side replaced bulb still not working


Dude you need to do a circuit test to check for power at the bulb socket with someone pressing on the brake pedal, or use a short stick wedged against the drivers seat.
Have you had a towbar fitted recently, these are a constant source of faulty connections !

I recently replaced all of the break pads (4 wheels all disc) on my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe. I have a brake, but the pedal goes down too far before gaining hold/stopping the car. I never cracked a bleeder...


the brakes need to be broken in, if you are pushing the pedal hard to try to stop, if the pedal just goes down on normal breaking then theres a problem, make sure the pads are sliding freely, if the pads are tight on the bracket then the bracket needs to be cleaned and lubed, this will make the pedal drop lower than normal, theres no other reason, you never opened the bleeders the pedal should be good, make sure the pads slide freely,
