You can bring it to a parts store, most will check to see why the light came on as a free service. To do this they will plug a scan tool into a port under the dash of the car to 'read' any stored codes in the cars computer indicating a problem. Write down the code #'s, ask them what they mean, and what they recommend u do to correct the problem. If u have any questions, post them here w/ trouble codes for further assistance. Have this checked out in the next week or two, don't let it go much beyond that.

On my 02 elantra once the engine is warmed up it will not rev up when i push the gas what can cause this


It sounds like your engine is going into the 'limp home' mode, indicating there is a significant emissions equipment malfunction. Is the 'check engine' light on? You can take the car to a decent Auto Parts Store (O'reilly, Autozone,etc) and they will scan for the error code and reset the 'light' and get the car out of 'limp home' if the fault was intermittent. If the light comes back on, the malfunction has to be repaired. Literally dozens of minor malfunctions will cause this. The Federal Emissions Standard laws REQUIRE the 'limp home' mode when the malfunction will cause a significant increase in emissions. The problem could be a loose gas cap or loose vacuum line etc. MAJOR component failures are rare.

The turn signal switch is grounding out somewhere which is probably at the switch and may need to be replaced. That is laziness on the dealers part for not checking the obvious. Tighten the gas cap completely and drive the car 40 to 50 miles and if the system is sealed, the light should go away. Please rate me on this answer.

Is your check engine light on? I have the same probelm with my 2002 Elantra. I think it may be connected to the O2 sensor with regulates the emissions, and can cause poor fuel economy. I know I need to get it fixed, but am waiting for funds to do so. Does it seem worse after you fill it with gas? I am just curious since that is what mine does.

2002 hyundai elantra gls . low idle speed, check engine light on, and doesn't shift out of low gear . ( 50,000 ) miles


Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

A random hazzard light


a service engine or check engine light. you have two choices either take it somewere to scan it for codes, or if it drives fine you can wait and see if the car does anything abnormal. if it runs fine for a while(week,month) you can reset the light by disconnecting both battery terminals from the battery . touch and hold the TERMINALS together for 10-15 seconds. MAKE SURE you do not touch the battery with the terminals. This will drain the remaining battery in the cables themselves and it clears the computer. Simply reconnect
