How to fix the aerial on a 2002 Hyundai accent as the rubber has worn off around the aerial and just a hole now?

You'll have to purchase the part from the dealer and I believe it isn't that expensive. One word of warning though, make sure you paint the rubber with a good quality automotive touch-up paint or the sun will destroy the new part rather quickly, I learned the hard way! If I remember correctly, I believe I had to remove the trunk liner panel near the antenna and the boot comes off with 1 (?) screw. And while you are at the dealer, you might want to pick up the brake pedal stop switch urethane button, under $2, as these fail and when they do your brake lights will stay on causing a dead battery situation. The button is on the brake pedal arm just below it's pivot point and contacts the brake light switch. What usually happens is you find the urethane button laying on the drivers floor mat in pieces, then you discover the dead battery because the brake lights stay on several hours.

Need to replace both brake lights

Hi, The 2007 Hyundai Accent is under a recall for the brake light switch since it has a tendency to fail. The brake light switch is high up on the brake pedal and it has a plunger on it. The plunger releases when you step on the brake pedal and retracts when you release the pedal. Recall Information can be found at:

Hyundai accent gs trunk smashed. dash light and back bulb on.

Drivers side kick panel(down by the hood latch) where your left foot is. There is also one under the hood by the drivers side strut tower. If nobody lost it there should even be a fuse puller in there. On the back of the fuse cover is a diagram that tells you which fuse is which.

Trunk light and dash light always on

I would have to agree it's an electrical problem. It might simply be a defective trunk lid latch switch. Here's the wiring diagram:

Trunk open light on dashboard trunk light on all time. goes off when applying brakes 2004 accent

Well I took it to a trusted mechanic and unfortunately for me it was not the switch in the trunk. The switch for the accent trunk light is built into the trunk latch which would be easy to fix, but I knew that because of the light going off when you press the brake it had to be a short somewhere, which it did turn out to be. Too bad we couldn't actually find the short, it is probably something rubbing on a gound somewhere. I actually just took the bulb out of the dash behind the trunk open indicator so it wouldn't drain my battery.
