Question about Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Hi, I have had a problem with my 05 Santa fe, for a few years now. It concerns the brakes. I had it in 2 wks ago for a servicing and alienment and balancing. I NOW have a tire that has scalloped , on the outer edge. I took it back and all they did was take the tire and transfer it to the oppisite side. It vibrates and it gets worse after braking. It isn't equiped with ABS. I have no trust in the dealership , Oregans Bridgewater, N.S. I have been handed so much BS I just want to know what the trouble is. I bought it NEW, I adore the "Fe" and just want it fixed> Can you help me? Pat

Cupped or scalloped tires can be caused by many things. Cups or scalloped dips appearing around the edge of the tread on one side or the other, almost always indicate worn (sometimes bent) suspension parts. Adjustment of wheel alignment alone will seldom cure the problem. Any worn component that connects the wheel to the car (ball joint, wheel bearing, shock absorber, springs, bushings, etc.) can cause this condition. Worn components should be replaced with new ones. The worn tire should be balanced and possibly moved to a different location on the car. Occasionally, wheels that are out of balance will wear like this, but wheel imbalance usually shows up as bald spots between the outside edges and center of the tread. Don't forget to check the control arm bushings and ball joints as play or looseness here can also allow unwanted gyrations in the wheel and tire as the vehicle travels down the road.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe, brakes locking up


Lets narrow this down a bit. You said all 4 wheels lock up. So the problem will will have a part in all 4 wheels. So knowing that, we can forget about the hose, master cylinder, and brake booster theories. It sounds like the ABS module is malfunctioning and surging. The Santa Fe's in the previous year had the same problem and were recalled. The problem with those was the ABS unit. Hope this helps you.

The brake light on my dashboard has been coming on and staying on in my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. What does this mean?


This can mean one of a few things.First, make sure your parking brake is fully released and not even slightly engaged.Next, check your brake fluid level.A low level will trigger a brake light.which this is probably your concern.Finally, your abs(if equipped) could be failing.More than likely it is simple enough as a low fluid problem.Have all four corners checked to make sure all your brakes are up to par and you should be ok.Hope I could help.Rate me accordingly.Thanks!!

Hyundai santa fe 2004 how can i install two front seat,


2 bolts in each of the seats' floor rails... total of 8. Wire harness connectors may not be the same power seat control harness, seat heaters, etc. Research of connectors shows floor harness connectors are identical between 04 & 05. However, optional features like seat warmers in the wire harness of the 05 model may not exist in the other and vise versa.

Brake light and battery light came on at the same time


Have your alternator and alternatorwiring checked, if the ALT light goes on, so does the brake. So it could be that the alternator is faulty. Also check the fuses.

Not unless the rotors are worn out past their minimum thickness. Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

Abs brake light stays on


There is no ABS brake light. Take the vehicle back to whatever service center/garage did the brake work and tell them to fix it.
