Question about Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

2001 Hyundai Sonata. This morning the brake and battery and airbag lights went on, defrost won't work, radio stopped working, and brakes started to lock up in the last mile, which I "fixed" by turning off my headlights. No odd noises, so I'm thinking it's the alternator itself, but anything else I should check?

Just the change dipstick and the oil in the car and also check if there is any debris in the car as the broken dipstick which may cause damaged to the engine ,You found the problem it was the oil burn which is causing the loss of power ,and also clean the alternator ..


Good luck....

SOURCE: parking brake light stays on

If it's just the light that stays on, often that's a sign that your brake fluid is low.

SOURCE: 2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

Try a day time running light modual,these things are notorious for messing up,and since they are supposed to work when the car is charging it seems like the logical solution.

I was driving and the brake light , abs and airbag light came on. the car was still running , however i think i lost some power , the passenager window would not go up and now I am not able to start , what...


Hi, Same problem - with my Hyundai Getz. Thought I'd pummelled the horn too much. However, I'm told that it might be the alternator. Battery completely died and couldn't be charged - AA man cleaned around the alternator ready for new battery, which seemed to work - advised to get new alternator. Didn't! Battery died again few weeks later, but still some power so that I can jump start the car - all lights on! ABS, airbag, brake - you name it! Also, car is brakig itself when driving - this only occurs when all lights are on. Lights eventually go off, and car resumes back to normal driving again - no more bunny hoping a it brakes, and no more smell of rubber. Have read that low power can be a problem for airbag light, and so checking battery, and alternator is a must. My alternator is now being ordered. Hope this helps. If it was anything else let me know.

Brake light still don't work after changing switch assy-stop lamp


Not enough information in your description of the problem. You start with "brake light still don't work after.... "??? after WHAT? Then you write .. 'and cruise control for a sonata 2000 2.4... etc." I'll take WILD GUESS... you have a brake lamp switch which is broken/malfunctioning. Please remember to RATE my response.
