Question about Hyundai Sonata
In my Hyundai Sonata right signal does not work properly. When lights are off and I use it, all lights including, head/fog lights are fleshing, my instrumental panel light is also flashing. When my headlights are on, right signal light is solid ON and when I try to signal right, nothing happens. Also, when I turn my emergency lights, everything is flashing just like when I only turn right signal without head lights (head lights, emergency, and instrumental panel light, fog lights). Left turn signal works without any problems. Hi/low beams work fine. It started to happen few days ago when car warmed up. I played around with it and it by switching lights and it stopped doing. Then next day it happened again when car warmed up, but stopped after I shut down and restarted the car. Then in the evening of same day it became permanent. Next day I noticed a strange smell of burning electrical insulation when I remote started my car and approached it. All fuses seem to be fine. Just in case, I looked at all of them with flashlight (both under hood and near steering wheel).
Did you check the directional switch. sounds like you have a bad one

Testimonial: "When I took apart the directional switch, I noticed some oily liquid between pins. Did not have electrical contact cleaner, so I used a napkin to wipe it. Issue got resolved when I put it back together."

Sounds to me that the turn signal switch is bad and will have to be replaced. If you could wiggel it around and get them to work tells me that is wear the problem is.

try changing the coil- sometimes they get hot and break down- once they cool off vehicle will start and run until they get hot again

this sounds very suspicious it is possible all the light just brunt out BUT very unlikely check fuses and test lights if lights or fuses are bad ? then test alternator volt regulator that it is not putting out too much volts not over 15v if that is OK then their is A short ! fore short you will need A weiring schematic PS. let us know please.

The problem is likely your multi purpose signal light switch. If you take the lever and move it from hi to low beam will the low beams come on? It is common for this multi purpose (real expensive ) switch to fail after a period of time! The steering wheel may have to be removed, to change it. The air bags will also need to be disabled so as not to active them while removing the switch.
