Question about Hyundai Accent

2 Answers

Brakes grab I have a 2009 Hyundai Accent 3 door with 34,500 miles. Starting last month when the vehicle sits overnight outside, when starting out the brakes severely grab. I have found if I lightly hold the brake pedal while giving gas for about 50 feet, the brakes will operate normally until the vehicle sits overnight again. The brake linings are not worn down. What is the cause and solution? Are other Accent owners having this problem? Please advise.

My car had new brakes and has a grinding squealing noise when I first start out and I took it back to where I bought the brakes. They asked me if it does it only in wet or heavy dew weather and I said yes. He said this kind of linings will get a fine rust even over night so just take it and use them. Dry weather they are ok. Been like that for three years now.

The brake pads are grabbing due to moisture, I would replace them with a set of high quality after market ones to stop this problem.

SOURCE: Right front wheel/disc brake? heat up

most likely a brake line causing problem. it is either the rubber hose or caliper sticking. the rubber hose will collapse and cause pressure to stay on the caliper

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.

My 2001 Hyundai Accent has 106,438 miles. Last night the check brake and check battery lights both came on. My battery is less then nine months old, but the car still has the original alternator.


the light that comes on just say "BRAKE", correct?

If this is the case first check the fluid level in the master cylinder. If it is low it will turn the light on. Top off with DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid only. Continue to monitor the level. if it goes down again within 10k miles than there is likely a leak somewhere.

The other thing that will case the BRAKE light to illuminate is if the E-BRAKE lever is not in its full retracted position.

If there was a problem with the charging system a light would come on that looks like a "battery". You should be able to see this light for a couple of seconds every time you turn the key on.

I test drove 2009 hyundai accent recently. car has 48000 miles already. Some squeaky noise is coming when you apply the break? I am thinking of buying this car. Is this a serious problem?


Hi, squeaky brakes can be as simple as dust from the brake pads ( this can be solved by washing the brakes with a hose pipe quite easy if it has alloy wheels.
If its a constant noise the brake pads could be due for changing which could be normal for that amount of miles( May also need discs ).
I would`nt let that stop you buying the car as they are a good car
I hope i have set your mind at rest

In your owners manual there is a phone number to file a complaint to the corporation. Do that first of all. I owned a Hyundai that did very strange things although I had strange braking problems which was repaired at a shop of my preference and was reimbursed.
The problem with yours has to be an internal transmission problem. Nothing will be found unless the transmission is removed and completely torn apart for inspection. More than likely a brass bushing is egged out making the trans to act so eractic

I had this exact same problem...turns out it has to do with a recall having to do with the stop lamp switch. I took it to the dealership and it only took about 20 minutes form them to fix it.
Hyundai is recalling 531,894 MY 2006-2007 Accent, Entourage, Sonata, MY 2007 Azera, Elantra and Santa FE, MY 2005-2007 Tucson and MY 2007-2008 Veracruz vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause the brake lights to remain illuminated when the brake pedal is released. A stop lamp switch malfunction may also affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature so the transmission shifter would not be able to be shifted out of the park position. It may also cause the electronic stability control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate, and it may not deactivate the cruise control when the brake pedal is depressed. Any of these malfunctions, alone or in combination, may lead to a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch free of charge. The recall began on April 23, 2009. Owners may contact the Hyundai Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-633-5151. This recall was the result of a Preliminary Evaluation conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation.

My 2009 Accent has no oil on dip stick for second time. First time was at 1700 miles and now again at 3700 miles. First time the light came on....the second time the car sounded like an old sew machine....


NOPE!... Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
