Question about 2002 Hyundai Elantra GT

1 Answer

Blinking dashboard lights

My wife went through a large puddle after a hard rain. She said that afterwards the car almost stalled. Then the Check Engine light flashed and went off as did the battery light. We have a stick shift. It drove fine later that day, as well as the next day. However, this evening on her way home the clock above the radio started blinking, then stopped. And then the ABS light started blinking really fast. Is this just a case of needing things to dry, or could it be something more serious?

    Thanks! How long do you think it'll take? This isn't the best time of year to wait for dry weather. It's been raining almost all weekend.

    Try to get it in a garage and leave an electric heater there too to get it dry!

Power steering went out while driving and battery


If the belt gets wet and flies off, or starts to slip, the power steering and alternator will stop spinning causing this condition.

Check belts to see if they are still on the truck and spinning the pulleys of the alternator and power steering pump.

Sounds like maybe the ECU had taken in some water. Is your ECM located behind the engine on the firewall? There are two large fuses located on the passenger side wheel well in the engine bay. They are two large (2" plastic covers) over them.

pop off the distributer cap and dry it out well. Put it back on and it should work. This happened to my 97 jetta too...also if I go through large puddles at a quick speed this may happen too. There isn't good electrical contact with the moisture.
