Re: hyndai xg 2.5 petrol indicators & rear fog wont s
BEST GUESS... you have a faulty fog lamp relay ... now, the petrol indicator in the instrument cluster has probably seen its last days (provided all the wiring is still in good condition and there are no shorts/opens in the circuit)

If it is a late model car using a CANbus system you need to be aware the switches do not actually control the current to the lights but merely inform a computer the lights should be switched on and a local computer places a request for this on to the information highway where another computer will receive the message and comply or if there is a fault, nothing happens or strange things happen.
The lamps can be checked in the traditional manner and so can the switches and even some fuses but after that it will require specialised diagnostic equipment to locate the fault.
The electric window could either be the fuse,switch, or window regulator motor at fault..Sometimes the window motor electric plug can vibrate loose or become loose from door slamming..Also the switch can become loose as well or contamination if you are lucky..You will have to remove door panel to inspect these components..and fuse panel..The light could be a faulty bulb..Check and replace bulb..before involving the signal indicator switch lever...If bulb is at fault go ahead and change bulbs at both rear sides..Do not try to repair signal switch because of air bag..If you can hold down on the turn signal switch and it works the switch is at fault...
I have the similar problem with my 2000 model. On mine I have narrowed it down to the rear light cluster on the right as you look at it from the rear (drivers side in the UK). Here's how I fix mine, although it does keep happening every now and again:
Remove the lights cover from inside the boot, it is held in place by a couple of plastic nuts.
Remove the strip of lights that are clipped into place.
There is an electrical connector block attached to the now removed light cluster. Undo this and the whole set of lights will be free.
Where the connector block fits to the light cluster clean all of the terminals. I use one of my wifes nail emery boards.
Make sure the female connectors on the connector block are all fairly snug so when put back together it is a tight fit.
Clean with electrical contact cleaner if you have any (not really necessary but I had some anyway).
Reconnect the block and test your lights, put back together.
I suspect it is an earth fault but I ran a separate earth to the unit but it didn't improve.
Other faults I noticed is the rear wiper operates when the front one only is on and I touch the brakes. Also when I lock the car when the indicators flash to show it is locked the rear high level brake lights flash as well. I was thinking of trying another light cluster, but 25 pounds from a breakers yard seems a little steep for a minor irritation.
when you removed the filter was there any wiring loom/harness that you may have disturbed ? this is a strange one , if there is no obvious way you may have disloged a wiring connector i'd advice you to get an auto electrician as these faults can be a nightmare to rectify
dont know, but im having the same problem. my pass. side front wont work, and the driver rear wont work. its a 2005 ion 2 i suspect its the motors in both of them. i will let you know in a day or two, as soon as i check the parts yard to get a couple.
the switches are a nightmare they always play up,if your good with a multimeter check the supply at the switch (feed in)flick the switch to on and check the output,no input broken or damaged wire or relay if you have input but no output its a switch fault....
hiya from uk the rear fogs and front fogs will only work when head lights are on also this is the correct operation re if weather conditions warrant use of fog s then you should req head lights ? if you understand ? as for indicators/hazards this problem is more than likely the relay switch is at fault ? this relay on most modern cars is the hazard lights switch which is a combined indicators and hazard lights relay unit try a replacement or price a new unit hope this helps ?
